The Mooney M20 is a family of piston-powered, propeller-driven general aviation aircraft, all featuring a low-wing and tricycle gear, manufactured by the Mooney Airplane Company.The "M20" was the twentieth design from Al Mooney, and his most successful. The M20 series was produced in many variations over the last 50 years, from the wooden wing M20 and M20A models of the 1950s, to the M20TN Acclaim that debuted in the 21st century.The first truly high performance Mooney, the M20E, was produced from 1964 to 1975 and marketed as the Chaparral and Super 21.The M20E was essentially an M20C with a more powerful 200 hp (150 kW) fuel-injected engine. It was type certified on 04 September 1963.This short body Mooney still has the distinction of having the shortest takeoff runway requirement at lower elevations.Turbocharging, which would maintain this performance at higher elevations, is available as an after-market option.
