Mooney 252 – “The Mooney with Magic”


This early ad highlights “The Magic.”

Zef used to tell me that the 252 was magic, a plane that could never be duplicated in speed, efficiency and reliability. I can’t wait to fly one!

Plane and Pilot magazine published one pilots real world experience. He said, “I usually fly it around 180 knots down low and between 200 and 210 knots at 17,500 feet. I never fly it wide open. Mostly, I like 65%—that gives me a fuel burn of 12.4 to 12.7 gph. Pretty close to book. See what I mean? Show me another airplane that can do that.”
