we found a 2004 Cirrus SR20 G2 with 1830 hours and are flying down to take a look at it. I’m currently a student pilot just starting out but this is mainly for my father who has been flying in clubs forever and we’re looking for our first purchase. We’re used to a Piper PA32 Cherokee 6 so this will be a huge difference for us with the weight limitations and everything.
Logs show it was in cirrus training center at CO and a student pilot ran it off the runway and hit a fence at landing at 1790 hours. It was then fully repaired and now were looking to purchase with 1830 hours. The tech are going to do the annual (due march) and the chute repacking needed this year and we understand the 2000 hour overhaul coming up. http://avclaims.com/N777XG%20Photos.htm pics of before the accident.
Is there anything we should be aware of prior to purchasing an Cirrus or a repaired plane in general? does repairs affect insurance rates or cause any other issues we need to look out for? We’re heading down Saturday to take a look and need to schedule inspections and everything.
