Can someone help me with the numbers? From 2/00 to 7/00, 5 to 6 SR20s were shipped per month. I believe production then ramped up as follows: Aug = 9, Sept = 10, Oct = 13, Nov = 14, Dec = 10. I thought I read somewhere that 106 SR20s were built as of the end of 2000. The latest Cirrus announcement, dated Feb 2, states that 111 planes have been built to date. Therefore only 5 planes were built in January. The goal is to be at 30/month by the end of March (with less people). I’m not trying to be negative, since I think Cirrus is a great company. Just looking at the numbers.
The layoff doesn't scare me. I've purchased many cars from Ford, and GM, and they have layoffs all the time (to stay in business).
