History of Mooney Aircraft

Knisley Welding caters to the aircraft exhaust systems of some of Mooney International Corporation’s aircrafts. Let’s take a look into the brief history of Mooney and how it has come about, how it has contributed to the aircraft industry, and how it is doing now.

Among the most popular Mooney planes are the M22 Mustang (the first pressurized single-engined, piston-powered aircraft), M20TN Acclain Type S (the fastest civilian single-engined, piston-powered aircraft), M20J 201 (the first production aircraft to achieve 323kph on 200hp) and M20K 231 (the fastest transcontinental flight in a single-engined, piston-powered production aircraft). But before uncovering why they...

Do You Speak the Aircraft Language?

Aircraft personnel like pilots, ground staff, and cabin crew have their own way of communicating. Their codes, protocols, and rules may sound funny, scary, or intimidating to us but these systems keep everything in motion. So, for you to not get lost in the translation of these codes and jargons flying around during your 16-hour long haul flight, allow us to give you a bit of a glossary to understand the situation. Here are the most common words spoken, feared, and mentioned during your flights: Let’s begin with the funny ones. BLUE JUICE When someone offers you...

The Leader in Aircraft Exhaust Maintenance

Aircraft exhaust maintenance is one of the trickiest parts of keeping a vintage plane in top shape. The fact that its components are hard to come by, has made maintenance even more difficult. Since private aircrafts or air taxis has a specific target market, there are not a lot of mechanics who can service such vehicles. Here at Knisley Exhaust, we pride ourselves for having a complete inventory of parts and employing only the most skilled aircraft mechanics in the industry. Our experience and capacity has led us to handle and service the known big brands of the aircraft...
