NEW YORK, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM and Mooney International Corporation, a leading aviation manufacturer, announced today that Mooney is the first manufacturer to provide its customers with a one-year subscription to SiriusXM's satellite-delivered aviation weather, information, and audio programming services with the purchase of a new aircraft.

"Our team is proud Mooney offers our top tier Weather service in all the aircraft across their line-up. Mooney is providing their pilots critical features that are not available on other services – via uninterrupted service coast-to-coast from taxi to touchdown.

All-Access subscribers also get access to SiriusXM programming when they are not in the air, on the SiriusXM app and online at www.siriusxm.com.
