I have a Mooney but maybe related. On another Mooney specific site there was conversation on installing the GFC500 in M20C aircraft. A bit different as the M20C is included on Garmin’s AML / STC. A specific shop was mentioned as having recently completed a GFC500 install, and it turned out to be a shop I had my GTN650 installed by, so they know my plane.
I inquired in passing “hey, how much?” and was rough quoted as $12k for the hardware and $6k labor, I.e. $18k out the door. This was quite a bit higher than what was discussed in the Mooney forum, which was roughly $9k hardware and $4k labor. Either way, it’s a hunk of change.
Curious, do Meyer 200’s have electric trim? Adding electric trim to a Mooney is a PITA and definitely would add to the cost. Is the GFC500 capable of working with manual trim or is electric trim a requirement?
