This is my first time here and I heard a lot of positive things about this site from Pilots of America. I’m considering on purchasing a pre-owned Cirrus SR22. I was really impressed with them at OSH, I’ve seen SR22’s before but never that up close and personal. I’m new to GA and I have a very limited amount of flight time. What I want to accomplish in flying is to take the Cirrus on business trips throughout Florida and Georgia and also some pleasure trips (1200 hrs a year minimum), I understand the costs involved . Is it possible to learn in a Cirrus SR22? I was told to learn how to fly first in a Cessna 172 but a lot of the flight schools here in my area of Florida have dumpy planes. I’m a tech guy, I love gadgets and I understand I would be paying a premium to learn in a Cirrus. My home airfield is KSPG!
Is it possible to learn in the airplane you want to fly?
On average, how long does it take to be well versed in a Cirrus?
Are there any flight schools in Florida, (Tampa, Saint Petersburg area!) that you can learn in a Cirrus SR22?
Thank you for your time!
