Thinking about a switch from my 1972 182 to an SR22. I have a beautiful 182. but before I spend a bundel on 530, Stec 55x and other stuff, I am thinking about selling it and buying a 2001 or 2002 SR22 for around 250K. I have also discussed buying 1/2 interest in a 2004 SR22 G2 from a pilot in the hangar next to me. I will most likly join COPA to learn as much as I can about these very interesting planes. I have never flown one, but am taking the G2 owner over to pick his up from the service center in my 182. He has offered to take me up flying upon our return. He grinned and said once I flew his G2, I could never be satisfied with my 182 again. Well, I want a bit more speed and updated technology. Hand flying my 182 for 3 hours is a chore so I either need to update my plane or replace it. Plus, I plan on getting my IFR ticket with PIC and am waiting until I have a GPS plane before I begin my training. I would like to hear from some of you SR22 owners concerning my possible switch. I do wonder about having the wings under me as I really like the down view from a high wing.
