Mooney’s M20U Ova­tion Ul­tra high-per­for­mance sin­gle truly con­firms that the leg­endary Ker­rville, Texas, man­u­fac­turer is back. Af­ter fly­ing the Ova­tion Ul­tra for our De­cem­ber cover story, we were left in awe by just what a great job the new own­ers of the com­pany have done, not only with this re­mark­able air­plane, but with the fac­tory in Ker­rville as well (they’ve spent $500,000 up­grad­ing the fac­tory light­ing alone). The ad­di­tions to the Ova­tion Ul­tra of a pi­lot-side door, cut­ting-edge avionics, a gor­geous in­te­rior and a long list of smart de­sign im­prove­ments add up to a prod­uct that can run with the best air­planes in its class, and thanks to its im­pres­sive cruise speed, eas­ily out­run them as well.
