Been doing research on the Cirrus, reading the various articles and press releases, monitoring the board obviously but today I had my first flight in the SR20.
What an easy to fly, responsive and yet fast single engine plane. In sports car terms, this thing turns on a dime. And despite what I’ve read here, the landings are pretty easy if you’re used to low wing aircraft.
I really like the left hand stick/yoke whatever they call it. Easy to learn, and once you use it for a while you wonder why other aircraft manufacturers don’t go this route.
Great avionics package with the Garmin 430’s and the Arnav. Autopilot is high quality and the cockpit layout has a great feel. The fit and finish are good in most respects but what the heck is with the door. Very difficult to close. Also, the center console also feels a bit on the flimsy side.
All and all an excellent aircraft.
