    Thank you for the explanation. It's not always easy getting info on stuff that seasoned pilots already know and take for granted that us newbes don't know! Cheers!

    Sooo... Add a GNX375, and then anything else I want to really use that does not require telescopic glasses to see from 3 feet away (like a Garmin G3X)? I really don't understand how people can...

    Regarding your comment about relocating the VSI, I've noticed 140s panel's are NOT in the traditional 6-pack layout. That bugs me. the 180s seem to be all over the place with instrument layout. I...

    Question about IFR requirements

    Can someone take a look at this link (Piper for sale)
    and tell me what this panel is lacking to qualify for IFR ops? I'm thinking of buying a plane to finish out my PPL, and I would like to get...

    Well, that's just rude.... Come on, Trump! Let's get together with Canada on this!

    Yes, I already knew that part. I fully intend to build a homebuilt, but I need to start flying while I'm still healthy enough to get a third class medical. That's why I'm looking for a good used...

    Help me understand why. Is it because it is a piece of metal that is hard to produce? Does it have to be cut on a lathe? I mean, if I was to try and reproduce it, I would think it would start as a...

    If you have read the thread, especially the previous page, you would know that the most likely reason is the LLC that owns it. Some sort of aircraft ponzi scheme.

    I knew this thread would turn...

    Here is the panel. Since I am a newbie, I don't recognize some of that stuff. Like, what is that thing above the transponder that says "comm" and "omni"? IS that a piece of equipment for IFR? I've...
  11. As a jumping off point/issue (although I have...

    As a jumping off point/issue (although I have already asked for opinions about the avionics), this plane has no spinner. I went and googled "piper 140 used spinner for sale". The cheapest I came up...

    It's nothing sinister. geo are the first 3 letters of my name (George), snooker is my favorite billiard game of all time, and the year 2000 was the year I first started joining message boards. And...

    Oh, I don't mean to imply the HBA board is really bad. I was just using it as an example of what CAN happen when know-it-alls get into a urinating contest, instead of having the heart of a teacher.

    I don't know about the specific issues with the AOPA site, but I can tell you what it MAY have been referring to. The GA world is filled with good people, but there are SOME (and they tend to...

    I suspect this airplane's log books will not be coming with the plane, whoever buys it, IF anyone buys it. Because, the plane will be a "foreclosure" of sorts, taken by the airport for years and...
  16. Assuming I get this plane (the guy a spoke with...

    Assuming I get this plane (the guy a spoke with at the airport suggested it might be for a $1), the panel is probably useless. Let's assume I needed to replace every piece of avionics in there. Or...

    Your father-in-law likely had a lot of land on which to build his own hangar. For the majority of people, we are relegated to storing a plane at the airstrip, where we can either pay $75/month for a...

    That is the $64,000 question.
    This plane, when you research the N#, seems to belong to a guy that was an aircraft dealer LLC who got sued in 2013, and if you believe internet chatter, probably did...

    I would definitely want to get a pre-buy inspection done by an A&P not currently associated with the plane. I mean, all issues besides the main spar bolt holes, since those are what I'm suggesting is...

    Thanks for all the responses. I realize the chances of this thing being worth it is a total shot in the dark, but that dude... that DUDE... the "This old Cherokee" guy. $1000 plane, put about $6000...
  21. Thank you, sir!

    Thank you, sir!
  22. A question about assessing a ramp queen for purchase (disassembly of the wings...)

    I spy, with my little eye... a 1969 Cherokee 140 that looks like it hasn't been flown in years. This is at a local GA airport. I think I see (from the closest I can get to it) a broken-out passenger...

    Outrider,
    I notice you don't list your location. Where are you based?
    Don't bother calling Mexico. I already tried that, and the Mexico, MO company is "not interested in helping you" purchase a...
  24. Painting a Certificated aircraft, and other questions

    Hey guys.
    I just have a stupid question. I'm sure there is a logical answer, but why is it important to the FAA for an A&P to be the one to paint an aircraft? Are they worried about the weight of...
