Materials in this collection are open for research.

Provenance Statement

The Al Mooney Papers were donated to the History of Aviation Collection, Special Collections Department, Eugene McDermott Library, The University of Texas at Dallas, by his son John Arthur Mooney on November 24, 1986.

Note to the Researcher

The materials in this collection are in good condition. Because the collection was originally processed at a much earlier date, the original order is presumed to have been retained except where size considerations (for drawings, blueprints, etc.) necessitated reorganization. The collection was processed a second time, necessitated by the inclusion of additional materials.

The series identification established during the original processing has been retained. However folders within a series whose contents pertain to a specific aircraft model have been grouped together rather than remaining in alphabetical order. For example, folders pertaining to the Opus Twenty-one, which along with its variants is also referenced as Model GL-225, Model GL225-1, and Mark 21, are grouped together in one subseries of series X. Lockheed. However, folders pertaining to a specific aircraft model that occur in different series were not grouped together, rather they were left in the series in which they were found to preserve original order. For example,the Model GL-225 folder found in subseries 5. of series IV. Mooney Aircraft, was not grouped with other folders pertaining to the same aircraft model in subseries 7. of series X. Lockheed.

It is also recommended that the researcher be equipped with a table in which Mooney model numbers are associated with the commercial names ultimately given to the aircraft once they went into production since, in retaining Mooney's nomenclature in the folders described herein, information for a given aircraft may be found in folders named either by model number or commercial name.

Images in this collection remain in the folders in which they were originally found rather than being grouped together in a single series. Hence, the researcher will need to look in several related folders for images of a specific aircraft.

The collection has been reprocessed with staples removed from documents and images appropriately interleaved with acid-free paper or placed in polypropylene sleeves.

Biographical Sketch

Born April 12, 1906, Al Mooney and his brother Art were the sons of a railroad engineer from whom they learned drafting skills that were later incorporated into their aircraft designs. Both brothers developed an early interest in aviation and pursued interwoven careers in the field throughout their lives; careers characterized by engineering brilliance and financial misfortune. Mooney personifies and in many ways pioneered the evolution of civil aircraft (and some military applications) from paper and pencil and trial and error design to computerized designs with tested components. Pilot safety and optimal performance were always uppermost in Mooney’s designs and plans.

Al Mooney entered the aviation field almost by accident. In 1924 a chance suggestion to J. Don Alexander about the rigging of Alexander's airplane that Mooney had observed flying over the retirement home where Mooney was visiting his father led to a job offer at Alexander Aircraft. It was at Alexander Aircraft that Mooney constructed his M-1, the Eaglerock Long Wing, the first of his 23 successful aircraft designs.

In 1926 Al took his first flying lesson, but had no later recollection of the specific date or aircraft. That same year he spent a brief period of employment with Montague – where his M-2 design was constructed – before returning to Alexander Aircraft where the Alexander Eaglerock Bullet, Mooney’s M-4 design, was built.

Realizing a lifelong dream, Al and his brother Art joined to form the Mooney Aircraft Corporation in Wichita, Kansas, in 1929. Unfortunately the venture was short-lived because of the Great Depression, and the company closed only two years later.

In 1934, Mooney was hired as chief engineer by Giuseppe Bellanca. It was at Bellanca that he became associated with the Bellanca Airbus and the “Irish Swoop” of McRobertson Race fame. He was at Bellanca only a year before becoming vice-president/chief engineer of Monocoupe Aircraft Corp. in St. Louis, Missouri. There he designed the Monosport G (Mooney M-10) and Monocoach. Once again, however, unfavorable financial conditions intervened. In 1937 Mooney and Knight Culver, a Monocoupe dealer, purchased the Monocoupe design rights and formed Dart Aircraft Company which was renamed Culver Aircraft Company in 1939. Hence the Monocoupe evolved into the Culver Dart which, in turn, became the Culver Cadet (M-12.)

Following WWII, Culver’s sales evaporated, as did those of most civil aircraft manufacturers. However, in 1946, Al and Art once again pursued their dream and returned to Wichita to reopen the Mooney Aircraft Corporation where they remained until certification of the M-20 in 1955. It was their first aircraft, the Mooney Series 18 produced in 1946, which was dubbed the “Mooney Mite” and exhibited the reverse tail by which Mooney aircraft are so well-recognized. A military version of the “Mite,” the M-19 “Cub Killer,” was developed for use in the Korean War. Due to economic pressures Mooney Aircraft Corporation moved from Wichita to Kerrville, Texas in 1953 where the M-18 continued to be produced as the M-20 made its first flight that same year. The M-20 was certified in 1955, following which Al Mooney left the company which bore his name and became an employee of Lockheed-Georgia where he was able to secure a position for his brother Art, as well.

While at Lockheed, three of Al’s designs were developed. One became the Lockheed Jetstar and a second, a utility plane the LASA 60, was built for use in Mexico and South America. During development of his third design Al’s wife Opie became ill and died in 1966. The following year Art retired and it was only a year later in 1968 that Al himself retired. Art died in 1980. About a year after completing his autobiography with Gordon Baxter, Al Mooney died on May 7, 1986 in Dallas, Texas, survived by his son, John and daughter Bobbie Sanders.
