Early in his career, Al Mooney convinced government regulators that all airplanes must carry a placard that states Maneuvering Speed—created to define structural integrity and control margins. You can thank Al Mooney for starting the original conversation about ‘flight envelope protection.’
A passion for speed, strength and safety defines Mooney’s philosophy.
This strong and efficient design is usually found only on turbine aircraft. It provides for optimum controllability in high angle of attack conditions, and eliminates trim tab drag.
This wing design, inspired by the legendary P-51 Mustang fighter plane, provides lower drag and increased fuel efficiency. It’s not clean sheet, because we got it right the first time.
LOWEST ‘FLAT PLATE’ DRAG AREA
Consider your typical computer screen, like the one you’re viewing now. That’s about the same area pushing through the atmosphere when a Mooney slips through it. It’s aerodynamic purity – defined.
STEEL-TUBE CABIN FRAME
The cockpit is enveloped in a high-strength, 4130 Chromoly cage - the same steel used to manufacture rifle barrels - providing an additional layer of security and safety.
These provide the ability to double your rate of descent, or peel off 20 knots -- or anything in between - while keeping engine temperatures well in the green. They’re standard equipment on the world’s fastest production piston-engine airplane.
PUSH/PULL CONTROL RODS
Mooney connects your movements with forged rods for precise, positive, reliable control inputs and feel. Your hand is connected directly to the sky. The way we see it, cables are for bike locks.
CARRY-THROUGH WING SPAR
This is the only aircraft in its class with a continuous tip-to-tip spar, providing exceptional structural integrity and ride quality.
Rugged Retractable Landing Gear
Nothing hangs from the fuselage of a Mooney. Landing gear is fully enclosed and equipped with dual cylinder / dual puck brakes for maximum stopping power.
All-Composite Interior Panels
Laminated composite interior panels are designed to maximize interior space, increase comfort, improve ergonomics and quiet the cabin.
On takeoff, as you retract the gear and bring up the flaps, the nose urges you to pull higher into the blue, faster than any competitor could ever hope to.
CAN WE BUILD ONE FOR YOU?
Fewer than sixty M20 Ultras will be offered in model year 2017 – and we are currently taking orders for them. Now is a perfect time to imagine your dream paint scheme and style, leather interior, unrivaled options and special touches that will make the next Mooney, your Mooney.
