Mooney has re-tooled the Acclaim in the Acclaim Ultra, making it the fastest certified piston single in the world. In this video, AVweb's Paul Bertorelli took the airplane for a test flight with Mooney's Lee Drumheller. And yes, it goes as fast as the book claims it does.

Excellent report Paul. Loved my M20J and it's economics Bought an SR20 and then 22. Was considering an Oviation before the 22 but truth is, not sure Mooney is around long term, I know Cirrus is and of course, the CHUTE!
