Buyers, PLEASE, before you bid, talk to your spouse, banker, mechanic, insurance company, potential partner, friend and whoever else. This is an auction, and you are bidding to buy, NOT for the privilege of looking the airplane over. I can arrange for you to look at the airplane at Arlington, Texas by arrangement before you bid. If you are the winning bidder and fail to complete the purchase, you forfeit the deposit. Also, keep in mind that I have attempted to describe the airplane accurately as to condition and equipment, but it is a 42 year old airplane. That said, it"s a really nice aircraft and I would fly it anywhere today.
If you are looking for a serious cross country aircraft, this Mooney will travel fast, burn fuel economically, and has some serious avionics and autopilot to make cross country travel safe and comfortable. For local flying and short trips, you can throttle back and get fuel burns like a Cessna 172. She’s a really pretty aircraft also. This airplane is very well equipped with great avionics and autopilot, and some really nice accessories. I am an A&P mechanic and I own this aircraft outright.
