Mooney Acclaim Certified
Kerrville, Texas, based Mooney Airplane Comapny has announced on January 4, that the Mooney Acclaim has received its final certification from the Federal Aviation Administration and deliveries were expected to begin immediately.
The fastest Mooney ever produced cruises at a true air speed of 237 knots at its service ceiling of 25,000 feet. Even at a lower cruising altitude of 10,000 feet, the Mooney Acclaim will exceed 200 KTAS, making it the fastest airplane in its class.
The Acclaim is powered by a 280 horsepower Teledyne Continental TSIO-550-G turbo-normalized engine equipped with twin turbochargers and dual intercoolers, turning a three-bladed Hartzell propeller. When ordered with the optional 130 gallon fuel tanks, it can fly up to 1,615 nautical miles while maintaining a 200 knot cruise speed. It offers a 20 percent increase in cruise speed over its predecessor, the Mooney Bravo, which it replaced in Mooney's product line.
