Mooney M10 Cadet

The Mooney M-10 Cadet was a light aircraft manufactured by the Mooney Aircraft Company in the 1960s and '70s. The M-10 was similar in design to the A2A which was in production at the same time. Of the differences between the models, the M-10 had a traditional single tail vertical stabilizer while the A2A sported the dual vertical stabilizers. The basic design of the M-10 was based on the design of the ERCO Ercoupe which was purchased by Mooney in 1967.
