Doesn’t take a lot to piece together the projected puzzle and then see what’s what…
Marty @ 20 May 31
Kevin Moore @ 101 – have heard Oct 1, is it Nov now?
Me @226 – supposed to be april 30, '02
So 18 between now and June 1… sounds do able
80 between june 1 and nov 1 … 5 full months 80/5 = 16 per month
146 between nov1 and may 1 '02… 6 full months 146/6 = 24 per month.
Does that look right to people? Is it bad that I’m being so public about this? If so, why?
Sorry if any of this is bad for anybody.
The only “unknown” is how many contract #'s are blanked out (demos, refunds, etc.) for planes that won’t be built.
I converted SR 20 contract #333 just after the original “conversion” period had elapsed and therefore had to get at the end of the SR22 line. My anticipated delivery date for the SR20 was March of '01 (contract signed April ‘99). I got my demo ride at my home base strip (a one-way 2500’ turf strip) in Nov. '00. The end of that month, after borrowing my son’s “new math” book and applying it to my finances, switched to the SR22. My SR20 delivery date had slipped to August '01 at the time of conversion. The SR22 contract delivery date assigned was March '02 for SR22 #212.
The e-mail I received from Ian Bentley plus my last conversion with my Cirrus rep. indicated that this was still do-able though I anticipate some slipage.
Quite frankly, my blood is thin enough that a couple of months would not be met with to much grumbling. I know warm is a relative term but what time does it warm up in Duluth?
Another point is that it would not be out of the realm of possibility for someone to want to switch from the SR22 to the SR20 as their life circumstances change. If my house and hanger were not beside the runway I would certainly be one of those.
