A couple of other guys and I are seriously considering purchasing an SR20 as a partnership. One of the potential partners has stated a couple of ‘concerns’.
- Free castering nosewheel: I think I can address this one with the partner, since I flew the “American” aircraft (Yankee, Trainer, Traveler) when they first came out and did not have a problem.
- “The only way to recover form a spin is to use the parachute”. I seem to remember that Cirrus did not need to do the complete spin recovery series because of the CAPS, but that does not mean that it could not recover. Does anyone have any solid info/facts on this topic??
