Mooney Airplane Co. has entered into a joint engineering project with Rolls-Royce to explore using the RR500 as an alternative-fuel (Jet A) powerplant to complement the current Mooney product line. Mooney’s participation in the General Aviation Manufacturers Association’s Future Avgas Strategy and Transition Plan and Mooney’s experience in building high-performance airframes make the two companies logical partners for the new project.
