I stand corrected Scott. I was thinking about my needs personally. I live in the mountains. My home is not bad at 2900 ft. but my cabin is at 6200 ft. The mountains in between make the MEA’s 12-14,000 MSL. So around here the turbo is great, but you are definately correct if you live in flat land. I wouldn’t have the extra maintenance of a turbo if I didn’t fly up high a lot.
So in the end if you are a flat lander, I would buy the SR22 unless you like flying with an oxygen mask on and like the discomfort of not being pressurized up that high.
Oh ya Scott, Have I said how much I love the TBM?! It’s an unbelievable plane. The only problem is I thought it would cut down my hours per year flying due to the extra 110 knots. It has done the opposite because now I find myself flying places I would have never dreamed of flying in the Cirrus. Oh well for the budget![;)]
