Mooney

The Mooney Aircraft Corporation was started in 1929 by Albert and Arthur Mooney, but went bankrupt in 1930. The Mooney brothers worked for other aircraft companies from then through WW2. In 1946, Albert started Mooney Aircraft, Inc. with Charles "Pappy" Yankey in Kerrville, Texas. The next year Arthur joined the company. The first aircraft produced by the new Mooney company was the small, single-seat, Mooney Mite M-18. The Mooney M20 entered production in 1955 and outwardly resembled a scaled-up Mite. Mooney is still producing variants of the M20 today. In 1965, the company became the U.S. distributor for Mitsubishi aircraft and began selling Mooney Mu-2 operating as Mooney-Mitsubishi Aircraft Inc. In 1967 Mooney acquired production rights to the Ercoupe from Alon Aircraft Company and produced a slightly updated version as the Mooney M10 Cadet. The M10 became the final Ercoupe variant, and production ended in 1970. In 1973 Republic Steel Corporation acquired the rights and tooling for Mooney and resumed production in 1974. The company continued aggressive product development. The turboprop Mooney "301" eventually became the TBM700 and is now produced by Socata Aircraft. There were a series of financial problems, and the company halted production in 2008. The few remaining staff are employed maintaining the company's physical facilities, its type and production certificates and providing parts technical support to aircraft owners.
