Mooney’s two new models, the M20U Ovation Ultra and the M20V Acclaim Ultra, now are FAA-certified and ready to start deliveries, the company announced this week. Both airplanes come with an all-new interior and a Garmin G1000 NXi panel. The once all-metal airplane now has a composite-wrapped cabin, which the company says produces a quieter ride. And to ease the getting in and out, the cabin now comes with two wide doors. The company is starting deliveries now and taking orders for the first batch of 50 airplanes planned for this year’s production.
The twin-turbocharged Acclaim Ultra has a top speed of 242 knots with a range of 830 NM, and the Ovation Ultra maxes out at 197 knots with a 1,080-NM range. The fully certified Acclaim Ultra will make its first public appearance next week at Sun ‘n Fun.
