Although turbocharging an engine adds cost and complexity, it gives the airplane more flexibility as a vehicle. You can get higher and go faster when the turbocharger is feeding the engine denser air than it would normally find at higher altitudes. And this is what the Bravo is all about; the ability to get above the bulk of the nasty weather and still achieve 220-knot cruise speeds. At low to medium altitudes, the only thing that will outrun the Bravo is Mooney's own Ovation. Above 10,000 feet, the Bravo will outrun virtually any new production piston single or twin, even challenging such accepted twin-engine speed demons as the out-of-production Baron 58P and Aerostar 601P.
