Has anybody else read this review in Loop?
Seems to me that the Mooney Acclaim (a supposedly faster aircraft with full TKS deicing) has not been compared fairly with the Lancair Columbia 400. The quoted figure of 150kts in the cruise differs significantly from the cruise speeds in excesss of 200 kts quoted by the manufacturer. In fact max speed for the acclaim is 237 kts, faster than the 235 kts quoted by Lancair !
To quote Lancair advert: "When speed rules it is good to be king".
Move over Columbia, theres a Mooney overtaking you.
Let's have fair comparisons, this review is at best misleading.
