1987 Mooney M20K 252TSE tuesday 2023-04-25

Meticulously maintained Mooney 252TSE — arguably the “apex” of Mooney’s unrivaled speed & efficiency — certified to FL280 and an ideal cross-country machine and IFR platform. Flight plan at +/- 200 knots at <= 14gph.  NEVER geared up / NDH.

I adore this aircraft (affectionately known as “Charlie” among my family & friends) which I’ve enjoyed immensely since becoming its 3rd long-term owner in October 2001. Engine runs beautifully with solid compressions (73/62/70/70/67/72) on a low-time, NDH airframe — and modern avionics include Avidyne’s IFD440 FMS/GPS NAV/COM, a Garmin MX-20 MFD, Garmin’s GTX 345 ADS-B In/Out Mode S dual-link transponder, JPI’s EDM 700 engine monitor, and a Shadin Miniflo-L fuel computer.

Other “bonus” features include leather-wrapped custom yokes, panel-powered front-seat Bose interfaces, Lasar custom visors, Bob Field inflatable door seals, and factory options including dual alternators, speed brakes, 4-place oxygen, and prop de-icing. New landing gear disks in Nov 2018.

Original paint is still good, but with some touched-up blemishes (eg, wing leading edges). Interior is very good overall, except for the pilot-side armrest (which is noticeably cracked and in need of repair). Complete, continuous logbooks (attached here – compressed versions req’d on AVweb, FYI).
