I have posted here before and I am a past Diamond DA40 owner. I have recently left the partnership and started the checkout process in a 2002 SR20. As we know there are alot of haters when it comes to Cirrus and their safety and thank to this group I am working with a well trained Cirrus instructor and so far absolutely love this aircraft. Compared to the Diamond I feel like I am in a large luxury vehicle. All the stories of hard to trim, hard to hand fly etc. are rubbish in my opinion. I am so glad I decided to go this route. I have an extreme amount of respect for the plane and plan to continue training and learning and look forward to fly the Cirrus for many years to come. Thanks to all on this board for your support. I will be joining the group shortly.
