Did anyone else notice that there were 258 Cessna Skyhawk SPs (172S) delivered in 2002 and 292 Cirrus SR22s? I think that makes the SR22 the #1 selling SE prop aircraft and I’d bet that makes the first time since the 1960s that 172 was not the #1 production airplane. (At least while it was in production.)
(If you add the Skyhawks (172) and Skyhawk SPs 172S together, they sold a total of 315, but since GAMA reported them differently, who am I to disagree?)
I also think that the 292 SR22’s delivered make it the #1 GA aircraft of any type and probably the #1 non-military aircraft!!
Great work Cirrus. You guys must be doing something right!
