Mooneys are among the most efficient and structurally sound airplanes manufactured. The low profile cross-section and laminar flow wings reduce drag to enable the fast air speeds typically unachievable in other manufacturers’ airplanes with similar horsepower. The tubular steel frame, acting as a cockpit roll cage, along with the wingtip-to-wingtip wing spar make the Mooney airframe the strongest and safest among GA airplanes.
The M20J, first introduced in July 1976 as the 1977 Model 201, included a variety of airframe enhancements engineered by Roy LoPresti that increased the top speed by 16 mph over the M20F model. The M20J, branded the 201, since it achieve 201 mph on only a 200 hp engine, was a significant milestone in Mooney’s history. Mooney continued improving the features and creature comforts in the “J” model until production ceased at the end of the 1998 production year.

This airplane received new paint, recent leather interior, recent top overhaul, and has always been hangared. It could very well be the lowest time airframe of those manufactured in 1978. It runs and flies great!
