We took delivery of N499MR, SR22 0094 on October 1, flew it home, and have flown every weekend since. We love the plane, it was worth the wait. Everything went well until we tried to back it into the hanger. That was when I learned that the castering nosewheel was designed to roll forward and not backward. The only other problem is the mystery of the engine start.
I have contacted Skyline Aviation @ www.dragger.com and Power Tow @ www.powertow.com. Skyline is working on adapting their tug design to fit the Cirrus nose wheel. They are looking for a Cirrus owner in southern Michigan to demonstrate their product. I would like to talk to any Cirrus owner that has experience with either the gas or electric Power Tow.
I would also like to know if anyone has developed a SR22 cold starting sequence that works every time. Any help and advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
