Mooney Acclaim Type S: A Piston Rocket As a former executive at Columbia Aircraft, I read Ian Twombly’s story on the Mooney Acclaim Type S with interest (“Mooney Acclaim Type S: A Piston Rocket,” September AOPA Pilot). Obviously, keeping that number-one speed ranking for the Columbia 400 was important to us but the simple reality was that aircraft we were building during 2006 and beyond were not meeting book specifications, so we had already (privately) lost that race before the Type S came to market.
