Mooney Airplane Company Acclaim Type S

The S stands for speed, and in this version of its Acclaim, Mooney added a handful of tweaks to eke out about 6 extra mph from the engine and airframe. A three-bladed Hartzell propeller, plus changes to eliminate drag from the gear doors and several flaps and inlets, did the job. Leather seats provide comfort, and big windows frame the view. Mooney has paused production during the economic downturn, but the company remains up and running to provide sales and support.
