The club has purchased N3275F, a Mooney M20F. The performance and equipment information is below. While it is an older plane, it's performance, efficiency and price cannot be beat. It has many of the 201 speed mods, a single piece belly, electric gear and flaps, non-slaved HSI, and a Hertzel Schimitar Prop. We just recently installed a new audio panel with music and pilot/passenger isolation capability and a new ADS-B out capable transponder. It cruises around 156kts at 10 gallons per hour. If you are building time, you can bring it back to 65% power, 110kts, and 7 gallons per hour making it as cheap to fly as a C172. We have also installed an iPad with Foreflight and a Stratus 2 which gives us moving maps, electronic charts, weather, and all traffic in the cockpit.
The current use rate for members is $56.25/hr dry (members purchase their own fuel), which includes a temporary increase of $6.25/hr for 2016 to help cover repairs and upgrades from 2015. Tach time is typically about 0.9 times the Hobbs time.
