O.K., now I’m spooked! Maybe I’ve got BIG trouble ahead.
Here’s a profile of at least one customer niche that Cirrus attracts:
–Low Total Time ( I’m about 90 hours, some in complex but not high-performance ).
–V.F.R. ( wish to become I.F.R. certified IN MY Cirrus ).
–Learned to fly some time ago; planning major refresher/instuction time prior to delivery
–Want to relearn in and fly a modern design, high-tech, SAFE aircraft. Wish to avoid me and/or my small children in a 20-40 year old tin-can type craft ( like WE ALL started in ! ). This is what is bringing some of us back to real planes instead of dreaming.
–Will travel to Seattle Wings Aloft ( or where ever) to get LOTS of time with CFI in rental Cirrus.
–Had a position for a SR-20, but UPGRADED to a SR-22 position (mainly for payload; also I figured I’d only buy ONE new aircraft in this lifetime and didn’t wish to trade up later).
For a customer like me (and I’m sure I’m not the ONLY one)…
What are the prospects of getting ANY insurance, much less REASONABLE insurance???
Do I need to think, instead, of getting in line (again) for an SR-20 - not an SR-22, merely for insurability?
Or is a lifetime dream of purchasing either craft such as this going up in smoke?
