I’m interested in beginning my flight school training in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. I’m writing to determine if anyone knows of any flight schools, or even individual CFIs, in my area who fly Cirrus aircraft. I would be interested in training in a Cirrus as I suspect that within a year or so I might be interested in purchasing a Cirrus either individually or in some sort of fractional arrangement. I realize this is a bit of an off-the-wall request, but so far I’ve not been overly impressed with the fleet of 172s and the like I see at area flight schools and I would welcome the chance to train in a Cirrus. Do you have any ideas for me? Is anyone comfortable providing me with the names and contact information of several Cirrus owners in the Minneapolis area? Thank you for your help.

Orginally, I asked this question of Mike Radomsky in an email earlier today. Here’s his reply:
No discomfort - but no capability, either! I don’t know of any CFIs or Flight Schools in the MSP area… suggest you post this request on our Public Discussion forum.

The Cirrus is awesome compared with almost anything, but ESPECIALLY a 172! Have fun…
