Mooney 201 (M20J) G-BJHB
“Everybody knows that aircraft handling tends to go critical at a high angle of attack. So I gave the vertical fin the straight up-and-down lines it still has today. Few people realise this was not a style gimmick.”
– Al Mooney
The GTN 750 is a fully integrated GPS/NAV/COMM solution. With intuitive touchscreen controls and large display you get quick access to high-resolution terrain mapping, graphical flight planning and more. It can be linked to the autopilot for accurate cruising and precision approaches.
We upgraded the somewhat tired original cloth interior to grey leather in 2006. Over the years a number of other upgrades have been made: Rosen visors, leather clad control yokes, new carpets, and Whelen LED landing lights, nav lights and strobes.
Managing weight and balance, 2 pilots can take a useful load of luggage in the back seat and baggage hold. We’ve also had two Brompton folding bikes in the back seat.
Some of HB's destinations
Over recent years HB has toured France, Germany, Czech Republic, Belgium, Holland, Spain, The Balearics and the Arctic Circle. But it’s just as good for day trips to Bembridge, Blackpool, Alderney and Wellesbourne. It probably knows its own way to Le Touquet.
