I just got off the phone with my Cirrus sales Rep. It seems that Cirrus’s production is going to be focused on the SR22 until the end of July this year. In August they will start a 50/50 split of 20’s & 22’s off the line.
I asked about the possibility of swapping out the Century HSI for a Sandel unit. I was told that this will/should be possible, but would require the optional 2nd alternator. Since Cirrus is admittingly having problems with the Century units, this would be a nice alternative.
Also mentioned was the fact that so many people are verbally degrading the ARNAV display. My Rep did say that Cirrus is committed to the “Big Display” theory. There was a hint of Cirrus looking into a different display unit of same or close to same proportions.
The big news is that I hold contract number 509. My orginal delivery date was scheduled for December of this year (12/01). Now it has been pushed back to August 2002. So basically an 8 month delay. Am I mad??..NO I am not. Thanks to people in this forum that take time to explain why Cirrus is geared toward the 22 instead of the 20, I am not mad. Just an educated consumer.
Bob #509 Good day, good flying, and be safe.
PS For everybody with numbers close to mine or beyond #509…Repeat after me…I can wait…I can wait…
