We’re 72 now. No longer comfortable up front.

Are you looking for an SR22 solution or an SF50?

If the latter, Cirrus has the VisionAir program that may interest you:

There are also charter options such as Verijet that offer flights aboard their fleet of Vision Jets and are expanding in the South East.

For SR22s the charter options are more limited (they are out there), but should the SR22 be a good fit for your intended mission, purchasing an aircraft and having it professionally flown is a viable alternative, albeit not as common.
