I bought a Grob 109 B from Jim Fangman.  I ferry it from Michigan to SC this past weekend.  Here are few pictures.

 

Yes, this is mine...good by savings!

There's a lot of great soaring over your way. The eastern side of the Appalachians throws up a nice wave, as does Mt. Mitchell. Baby your engine. There have been issues with the Limbach engine in Grob's from shock cooling resulting in cracked heads because of improper cooling prior to shutdown. Gotta be gentle. Have some fun!

Years ago I have flown out of Marion NC or Lenior Morganton for wave camp.   

Do you have a specific procedure for engine shutdown in the grob 109 before soaring flight?

The Grob109B has a 2.4L Grob engine

I think you made a great choice to fly a TMG!!  I'm in ATL area and co-own a Phoenix TMG and fly close to that route every year.  The mountains are just beautiful.  Drop me a PM at email: flyboy(at)bellsouth(dot)net.  Maybe we can get some Southeastern TMGs together this fall.

Welcome to the Grob109 family!

Thank you!  What a beautiful paint job.  My wife hates the grob red/orange.  That blue is just smashing.  Did you get your plane resurfaced?   I love your panel.  Where do you have the radio and transponder in your panel?
