The COPA Board of Directors have been in regular contact with Cirrus Aircraft Leadership regarding the Parts Supply issues. We trust that Cirrus is working diligently to address the supply issues both internally and with their external supply partners. We understand that there are various complexities with regards to this topic. Due to this, Cirrus recommends working with your preferred Cirrus Authorized Service Center for any Specific questions you may have regarding parts related to your aircraft.

However, Some of the lead-times are simply unacceptable.
While not always the case, these longer lead time items are typically related to older generation aircraft.
We have requested that Cirrus work with industry partners to allow for greater resources(beyond Cirrus) to be available specifically for these older/“Legacy” airframes.

COPA stands ready to support these older aircraft by not only working directly with Cirrus, but by also coordinating and working with other Industry partners that seek PMA/STC approvals for parts.

COPA has specifically requested Monthly updates from Cirrus with regards to the following Items along with others that may be of concern.
We will also provide updates out of cycle as we are made aware from other sources as well.

Parachutes and Rockets aka CAPS:


COPA Recommends that all owners schedule their repacks with the Cirrus Service Center of their Choice at least 6 months in advance of their Parachute and/or Rocket expiration.

Cirrus is prioritizing deliveries to aircraft that are, or are approaching an AOG Status. that is priority is given to Expired Componets vs original Order date.
Therefore it is recommended to schedule these dates with your Service Center as Close to expiration date as possible, at this time.

SR22-G1 - Latest Reports are “On-Time” or Just in Time.
SR22-G2 - Awaiting Confirmation/Verification
