According to Mooney CEO Dr. Jerry Chen, the new leadership at Mooney has spent the past few months preparing the dormant company’s return to manufacturing. The airplane manufacturer was purchased last October by Soaring America Corporation, a new California-based company financed by a group of Chinese investors.
“This is an important date in the history of Mooney,” said Chen. “There has been an extraordinary effort on the part of everyone at Mooney and I couldn’t be more proud of what has been accomplished in a short amount of time.”
The company now employs more than 55 people at the Kerrville operation, according to officials, who note that the facility is being upgraded with new manufacturing equipment.
