Long flight, but definitely do-able in a Mooney. The new ones can fly up to 1800 miles one one tank.

The owner had been exploring Europe in his Mooney N1164G, but wanted a ferry pilot to take it back to the USA.

Yes.

Yes and it was not easy with terrible weather (gales and lots of icing clouds) in both Iceland and Greenland. ..Was stuck in Nuuk (BGGH) for four days with horizontal rain and snow and surface winds that reached 70 knots. Had to put the aircraft in Greenlandair's hangar for three nights at a cost of almost $300- per night.
