The Mooney M10T proof of concept aircraft successfully completed its first flight of 15 minutes on December 23, 2015, from Chino Airport in California, USA. Basic flight maneuvers were performed which verified its design data.
“The flight was a tremendous milestone for the M10 program,” said Jerry Chen, CEO of Mooney International. “Our team of engineers has been working very hard to reach this day, and we are excited to have achieved this milestone in 2015, just one year after announcing the M10 program at Zhuhai Airshow in China.”
The M10T, announced in 2014, is Mooney International Corporation’s newest design – a carbon-fiber, three-seat, fixed-gear aircraft. Powered by the Continental Technify CD-135, Jet-A engine, the M10 is a new generation aircraft designed by Mooney specifically for flight training operations. The M10T will continue testing as the program works toward certification in the next few years.
