News from the front (or Cirrus)

I spoke with Cirrus today. here’s what they said:

  • They have given #50 a delivery date in july.

  • They expect to have 150 planes out the door by 12/31/00.

  • They are working on a 100-140 lbs. GW increase. expect 6 weeks.

  • They are currently flying the Stormscoper certification tests. Expect 6 weeks.

  • They are test flying the SR22 with a IO-550/310 HP. Cruise speeds about 185 kts.

  • They may unveil the SR22 @ Sun-n-Fun in April.

Take these dates and projections as you like. I’ll believe it when I see it, but I hope they hit all of these numbers.
