The Mooney brand is best known for its commitment to speed, power, reliable service and performance. The Mooney M20K series was produced for almost 20 years, with many options for the single engine aircraft pilot who wants to purchase one of these powerhouses.
The Mooney M20K 231 series provides several advantages to the pilot. The M20K 231 is considered the alternative Mooney to the M20J, offering superior speed performance that most pilots donít realize until they are flying the M20K 231.
The turbocharged M20K 231ís distinct advantage is its power to deliver almost 75% of cruise speed at increasing altitudes. With a rate of climb around 1000 feet per second, this aircraft should be flown with one to two passengers for maximum performance.
One disadvantage of this model is its propensity to experience premature cylinder wear before total engine overhaul around 2000 flying hours. Still, for many pilots this is a small price to pay for the packed performance this aircraft delivers.
Avionics on the M20K series is the classic Mooney T-avionics form with panels relatively close to the pilot. The legroom for the pilot in the Mooney series is unmatched, but the cabin for any additional passengers is fairly limited. This aircraft was produced as a sports car- not a minivan- and as such the cabin is limited in space and payload.
The consumer must weigh the cost comparison for the M20K 231. If youíre flying above 10,000 feet on a regular basis, this aircraft delivers unmatched performance. If youíre a lower altitude pilot, then a less expensive non-turbocharged M20K is more cost effective.
