Mooney drivers share a unique and deeply seated characteristic – they like to go fast! This is NOT your father’s Chevrolet. This airplane is FAST (215-220 kts at altitude) and with Known Ice TKS and a great instrument panel, it is equipped to get you there safely.
The M20M TLS/Bravo was introduced in 1989 as part of Mooney’s expansion of its model line. The TLS/Bravo design was quite different than previous Mooney designs. Larger aft cabin windows are the most obvious exterior change from the 231/252 models. The rear seat and aft bulkhead were moved back to provide more interior space while preserving basically the same baggage area.
Mooney has advertised its aircraft as personal airliners and the Bravo is as close to a personal airliner as a piston single can get. The turbo gives you flight planning options that a normally aspirated engine simply cannot. Combining the turbo performance with TKS and on-board oxygen expand the envelope for flying missions not feasible in other manufacturers’ airplanes. Imagine the expanded range of destinations you can fly to quickly and without a fuel stop.
This airplane has always been hangared and has always been maintained by an authorized Mooney Service Center. It is a remarkable airplane at a terrific price.
