Dear Cirrians (sounds like “Syrians”),
I got a POH from Cirrus today, FedEx, but it was for the SR20. I called to ask about it and they said that the SR22 POH wasn’t ready yet, but that they’d send me one as soon as it was.
So either they sent me the wrong one and it is available (person today was confused) or they don’t have it yet (person I ordered the SR22 POH from was confused). When I ordred the SR22 POH the guy knew I meant the SR22 POH because he said “they just became available today”. Either way, Cirrus screwed up a small, but simple thing.
I wanted to mention it here in case others (1) had gotten the SR22 POH, or (2) they were thinking of ordering one.
In any case, they must have had something in the way of a manual for Paul Traina. Good news email from Ian Bentley at Cirrus:
Dear Cirrus Customer:
This is to let you know that we are hoping to get
a “Customer Update” out to you in a couple of days time. We should by then have a good picture of the production plans and one or two other issues that are now taking shape (like gross weight increase).
Many of you e-mailed me about the impact on your delivery of our restructuring the manufacturing process. I apologize for the ones I haven’t
yet replied to - I’ll get there in the next day or so.
In the interim you should know that we have just delivered the first SR22 and I have attached a copy of the information we sent to the press. There will be a picture of Paul Traina taking delivery on www.cirrusdesign.com
in the next few hours. I suspect Paul may post some elsewhere as well.
Regards to you all - Ian Bentley.
