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.

In 1982 Mooney included streamlined wing tips and improved sound proofing.  This airplane was just stripped and repainted with a striking paint scheme!  It was also upgraded with a one-piece belly pan for reduced drag and ease of upgrade that wasn't factory provided until 1984.  It flies and runs great!  The panel is full IFR with a KAP 100 autopilot, Garmin GNS 530 and King HSI.  The Garmin GTX 330 was just upgraded with the "ES" ADS-B Out upgrade that displays weather and traffic on the 530.  As with most of the airplanes we sell, Air-Mods just performed a comprehensive annual.  The engine runs strong with good compressions and normal oil consumption and it's ready to fly on your next cross-country flight!
