1977 Mooney M20J


While flying throughout the eastern side of the United States in under ten days, it was critical for me to choose an airplane safe enough to conduct the trip with certainty that I could complete my intended route and arrive at intended destinations. This makes the speed and efficiency of the Mooney very attractive for our mission. While many pilots have flown slower airplanes across the same distance, the time it takes to complete the flight significantly increases. While maintenance plays a crucial role in the success of this mission, I have tremendous confidence in the team at Goodrich Aviation who has kept me safe my entire flying career.
