I'm pretty sure this is a pre-J model.  Has anyone flown one?

This is a Mooney M10 Cadet.  Have a look at this one landing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIWjI2Ro33A.


Don't know where there is a good history of these.  I also believe that, at one time, Mooney owned the TC for the Ercoupe and the designs are similar, except for the twin tail of the Ercoupe.

You are correct. Mooney made the M10 from 1968 to 1974.

Mooney bought ALON in 1967 and made the M10 cadet from 1968 to 1974. They also made the Ercoupe 1968 to 1970. The type certificate now belongs to UNIVAIR who continues to make spare parts and support the type. I asked them at Oshkosh this year about possibly bringing back an LSA version of the Ercoupe and they told me emphatically that no way they would. The usual thing, too much liabilty, too small of a market and costs too much to bring to market. Same things that are forcing Mooney into the same position. Forget plane sales, just make the parts for the ones that are still out there.

When Mooney did own the type cert for the Eurocoupe, they worked on the twin boom, by trying to eliminating it. My Fathers last entry in his log book before he quit flying, was flying this single boom Mooney/Eurocoupe, working down the hours for certification. The certification never happened obviously.

I'm an Ercoupe owner and new M20C owner.  The story is Mooney bought the TC from Alon in 1968.  They built 33 airplanes that were nearly identical to the Alon a2 and are know as Mooney A2a Cadet (twintail).  Then they build 52 of the M10 Cadet. The M10 is the same airframe as the A2a but with a conventional tail.  I have flown both the Mooney M10 and Mooney A2a.  Very nice flying airplanes.  The M10 has a little more ruder authority than the A2a but other than that they fly identically.  For a 2 place, 90hp airplane, they are great.

Hi.  I own a 1970 Cadet and am looking for the left exhaust stack.  I called Univair and they told me they dont carry it.  Does anyone know where I can obtain the exhaust system for the Cadet?

Call Don Maxwell, he used to personally own a Cadet. He is a Mooney expert and would probably be able to stear you in the right direction.
