Mooney drivers share a unique and deeply seated characteristic - they like to go fast!  If a Cessna is akin to a Chevrolet and a Bonanza is akin to a Mercedes, then the Mooney is akin to a Porsche.  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 M20C Ranger is the most common of the early Mooneys.   This airplane features a VFR panel suitable for $100 Hamburger flights while providing easy entry into complex airplanes.  It is a very stable and efficient cross-country platform and, with its 'clean' wing, performance that won't break the bank.
