Mooney Acclaim Type S Specifications - Dimensions

Below are the Mooney Acclaim Type S Specifications and Dimensions. Many refer to this information as the Mooney Acclaim Type S specs. Data is from various data sources. Also, note that most of the specifications listed below also apply to the regular "Mooney Acclaim". The main differences between the Type S version and the regular version are airframe performance modifications that yield a higher top speed and a new propeller for the Type S. Known differences are mentioned in the data.
