You must think me daft.  mk201turbo said " I can go fast, or I can descend fast, I can’t do both."    I have found it quite easy to do both.

 

I believe... with Mooneys, all things are possible...

I was reporting what is oft said around MS...

I also gave my input for having brakes...   sort of elevator DOWN! affect...

Maybe we should check in with Rich...

There is a possibility that some people avoid using a very low MP in flight...

Others have to lose a ton of altitude in their area of the Mooney world...

So many variables in the mix...

Best regards,

My point was, high speed descents don’t give a very good descent profile. If you can get it down to approach speeds, throw out the gear and flaps, bring the power and prop back, it comes down pretty good. You can get almost the same descent rate at high speed, but you will be eating the miles twice as fast.

The 310 is Mooney like trying to get it to come down, The Seneca on the other hand descends like a brick, pull the power back a bit and it will come down at 1500 ft/min or better. The bosses B36TC is the same way. He likes to stay at pattern altitude till about 1 mile final, pull the power and make the runway. I tell him I can’t do that in the Mooney.
