For Immediate Release

MOONEY INTERNATIONAL INTRODUCES FIRST NEW MOONEY MODELS

CHINO, CA November 11, 2014­ Mooney International introduced the first new
Mooney models since the restructuring of the company at the Airshow China
2014 in Zhuhai, China. The Mooney M10T and the M10J fill a need and
reflect innovation at a different level of the fleet mix and these
aircraft will provide a steppingstone to the high performance M20 series.
The M10T is a modern fixed gear composite trainer equipped with
Continental¹s CD-135 Diesel engine to train new pilots for the Technically
Advanced Aircraft (TAA) that they will be flying in the future. The M10J
will provide an upgrade from the M10T airframe with more luxury and
amenities for the owner pilot. In addition, the M10J will be equipped with
the CD-155 Diesel engine. The M10T and M10J engines have leading turbo
diesel technology, low operating costs, and provide pilots a fueling
option of diesel or jet fuel. These two aircraft will provide the general
aviation market with a modern aircraft, not only for the mature western
aviation market, but also for the fast growing Chinese market. The M10
series is expected to gain certification and begin deliveries in 2017.

Mooney¹s M20 series are all Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) Part 23
certified aircraft. The M20TN Acclaim Type S and M20R Ovation3 are single
engine aircraft legends known for their high performance and fast speed.
The twin turbo charged, 242 ktas M20TN Acclaim Type S features a premium
package that includes a Continental Gold Standard TSIO-550 G engine with a
three or five-year full parts and labor warranty and a 2200-hour TBO. The
M20R Ovation3 features a 310hp Continental Gold standard IO-550 engine and
an industry-leading 197 ktas cruise speed. Until now, there has been no
trainer in the product line.

The M10T will fill the need for a new trainer option for new pilots and
flight schools everywhere so pilots can seamlessly move onto Mooney¹s M20
series. The M10J, displayed as a full-scale mock-up at the show, is a
retractable gear, diesel-powered aircraft. The M10J performance goals
include cruise speeds greater than 170 ktas and a range of more than 1,000
nm while maintaining a competitive market price. The ³J² designation
alludes to the well-regarded and highly popular M20J also known as the
Mooney 201. The M20J is regarded amongst the most fuel-efficient single
engine aircraft in its category and has been featured as a leader in
efficiency throughout the aviation news industry since its initial release
in the 1970s.

³We designed the all new M10J model with longtime Mooney fans in mind. The
M20J helped change general aviation by making flying practical to more
people across the U.S. Now, the M10J promises to do the same for the
world. Not just in the U.S., but also in China as its general aviation
industry quickly develops,² said Dr. Jerry Chen, Mooney CEO.

At Mooney¹s unveiling ceremony in Zhuhai Dr. Chen said, ³I am very excited
to officially present the new M10 series of Mooney aircraft for Training
and Performance. These aircraft mark a new beginning for Mooney and are an
indication of great product innovation coupled with Mooney¹s long line of
history making aircraft.²
