I was wandering what the general sense regarding options has been with the SR20. Having had a real life vacum pump failure on the way to Oshkosh several years ago means I have strong feelings about back up systems and a penchant for electrical rather than vaccum as well (Think option “C”). Having flown “autopilotless” for several hours in a 172 in real IFR has also shaped my desires in this area.(Again, think option “C”) I get to ride jump seat occasionally in DC9’s, 737, Air Bus and 767’s. I note that the professionals often (always?) let “auto” do the approach and landing when its really ugly outside. This makes me think think even more carefully as to what a single pilot IFR guy should be doing…option C? Or, maybe staying on the ground on occassion?
The prop is really an esthetic thing. Looks kool.
I could care less about leather and air conditioning is not a concern at this latitude. Stormscope would be nice but my sense is that it could be added for 3K less after the fact?
Am I off base on this latter observation?
So, what is the most common option being ordered?
