It is as good as expected, if not better. I just hope Alison, Ian, Mike, Kate & Ron (my instructor) didn’t think I was an absolute moron for walking around with a really beg stupid grin on my face the entire time.
The Plane is great and it seems to beat the book by one or two kts. Weight is right on the 2250 Lbs empty. n the next day or two, i will post a full discussion of the plane, training, Cirrus & of course, the trip home.
Was it worth the 4 1/2 year wait? I don’t know, but I can’t imagine a much better feeling than I get when I fly it. (well at least a feeling which can last over three hours!) I broke my 20 hour rule with no passengers to take my wife for a mother’s day ride, and she loved it as well.
