Cirrus, based in Duluth USA, is best known as a disrupter in the aviation market delivering private jets that meet range, comfort and safety – all for a sub US$2 million price. Cirrus, since the early 2000s, has delivered more than 7,000 of its single – engine piston – powered SR20s and SR22s and Vision Jets worldwide.
The new Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet steps up the innovation. Cirrus says that the Vision SF50 is unique with its single-engine, carbon-fibre body and Cirrus full plane parachute, which allows a pilot to float the entire plane to earth in an unprecedented crisis.
Ten years in production, the us-made Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet is the most exciting and game-changing aircraft in business and personal aviation for many years. The new SF50 has a distance of 1,200 nautical miles – approximately the distance from New York to Dallas.
In one bold stroke – with a million advances, enhancements and thoughtful touches – Cirrus has made jet speed, jet comfort and jet convenience more accessible.
Aircraft systems and subsystems come to life on the Perspective Touch flight displays as digital diagrams, tailored specifically to the design of your Vision Jet. Features like side yoke controls , the Cirrus Perspective Touch(tm ) by Garmin(r ) avionics , Synthetic Vision Technology ( SVT ) and single lever FADEC engine control creates a flying experience that lets you safely and comfortably fly with the confidence and control that can only be found in a Cirrus.
Most of them will be sold to existing customers from the piston engine, so Cirrus will not only offer factory direct purchasing options, but will also provide training and certification programs for new jet pilots.
Cirrus offers three levels of guarantee programs, the highest levels of all-inclusive, pre-paid main-ten-year program that includes scheduled and unscheduled air maintenance, engine and avionics. Prices start at US$1.92 million.
