Mooney M20E

Listed with us exclusively we are pleased to offer this lovely Mooney M20E powered by a mid hour Lycoming IO-360-A1A 200 HP normally aspirated fuel injected engine overhauled in 2009.

23V, located at Henstridge, benefits from being a fully IFR airway equipped fast tourer with a mid hour engine, Hartzell 3 blade propellor as well as good interior.

The Mooney M20 is a family of piston-powered, four-seat, propeller-driven, general aviation aircraft, all featuring low wings and tricycle gear, manufactured by the Mooney International Corporation.

With a serial number of 1165 , 23V was the penultimate M20E to come off the production line in 1975 and was the epitome of short field operations amongst the Mooney fleet

The M20 was the 20th design from Al Mooney, and his most successful. The series has been produced in many variations over the last 60 years, from the wooden-wing M20 and M20A models of 1955, to the M20V Acclaim Ultra that debuted in 2016. More than 11,000 aircraft in total have been produced.

In 1963, the M20D was introduced, essentially an M20C with fixed landing gear and a fixed-pitch propeller. This had a slightly lower price than the M20C and was intended as a basic or trainer model which would have lower insurance costs and which would compete with the Piper Cherokee 180. It could be upgraded with retractable landing gear, and in fact, most of them were upgraded over the years. The M20D was produced from 1963 to 1966 with a total production of 161 units. In 1964 the M20E Super 21 was introduced. It was also based on the M20C but with a more powerful 200 hp (150 kW) Lycoming fuel-injected engine. The company sold 366 M20E units that year.

With the exception of the earliest models which had wings and tails with wooden frames, M20s are constructed entirely of metal. All are low-wing aircraft, and the wing skin is aluminium. Slotted electrically operated flaps cover 70% of the trailing edge. The forward fuselage has a steel-tube cabin structure covered in aluminium skin; the aft portion of the fuselage is of semi-monocoque design. In many places on the skin of the airplane, flush-mounted rivets are used to reduce drag.

The empennage of the Mooney M20 is easily recognisable by its unique tail fin with a vertical leading edge. (The tail fin looks as though it is “leaning forward”, but it is approximately vertical in level flight, depending on trim setting.) The horizontal tailplane, which consists of fixed stabilisers and trailing elevators, has no trim tabs. The entire tail assembly pivots at the rear of the fuselage to provide pitch trim.

The Mooney M20 series has been produced in three fuselage lengths: the “short-body” (M20 through M20E), “medium-body” (M20F through M20K), and “long-body” (M20L through M20V). Although all M20s have four seats, the fuselage length increase provided more rear passenger legroom, but with a slight performance decrease: for a similar engine and vintage, a long-body plane is 4 to 6 knots slower than the short-body plane.

The fitted GAMI Injectors allow for safe LOP (Lean of Peak) running which has enabled the current owner to operate this aircraft between 23 & 25 Ltr’s per hour obtaining an indicated airspeed of 120Kts, practically unmatched for a 4 seat certified all metal aircraft making this variant and model extremely cost efficient to fly. 

N23V has been maintained by FAA Maintenance at Henstridge Airfield for the last 11 years where the chief engineer is intimately familiar with the aircraft and can answer any questions from potential buyers.
