Beechcraft Musketeer Series Aircraft Information
A family of single-engine, low-wing, light aircraft the Beechcraft Musketeer was in production from 1963 to 1983. The Musketeer family includes the Model 19 Musketeer Sport Series, Model 23 Musketeer Custom and Sundowner, Model 23-24 Musketeer Super III, the retractable gear Model 24-R Sierra, and the military CT-134 Musketeer. The capacity of the Musketeer is for one crew member and three passengers. Empty weight is 1375 lb (624 kg) and the gross weight is 2400 lb (1089 kg). Cruise speed is 102 knots (117 mph, 189 km/h), stall speed is 63 knots (72 mph, 117 km/h), and maximum speed is 127 knots (146 mph, 235 km/h). The Musketeer's rate of climb is 728 ft/min (3.7 m/s).
A total of 4366 aircraft in the Beechcraft Musketeer line were produced. Variants include the Beechcraft 23 Musketeer, A23 Musketeer II, A23A Musketeer, A23-19 (Model 19), A23-24, A24, 19A, M19A, B19, B23, C23, A24R Sierra 200, B24R Sierra 200, and C24R Sierra 200. The first Model 23 Musketeer was powered by a 160 hp Lycoming O-230-D2B engine in 1963. The engine was replaced by the 165 hp Continental IO-346-A engine the next year. The engine was replaced again in 1968 start with the B23 Musketeer Custom with a 180 hp Lycoming O-360-A4J engine. The C23 version was introduced in 1970 under the name Musketeer Custom. The C23 was renamed the Sundowner in 1972.
Introduced in 1966, the Beech 19 Musketeer Sport lacked the 23's third side window and had a 150 hp Lycoming O-320-E2C engine. The Beechcraft 23-24 Musketeer Super III was a higher-powered version also introduced in 1966. The Model 23-24 had an upgraded 200 hp Lycoming IO-360 fuel injected powerplant and was equipped with a constant speed propeller. The fixed landing gear configuration of the Model 23-24 Musketeer Super III prevented using full advantage of the extra power of the injected Lycoming. Redesigning the Model 23-24 to retractable landing gear resulted in the Model 24 Sierra in 1970.
The Musketeer's undercarriage is the main difference between the Musketeer line and other similar light aircraft. While the competitors used sprung steel main gear, oleos, and fiberglass spring main gear; the Musketeer family use a trailing idler link gear system with a compressed rubber puck suspension system. The Musketeer family are popular trainers and used by many flying schools. Prized for their large, roomy cabins, airframe strength and stability most Musketeers are now privately owned.
