Just a wild idea, maybe in connection with a WW Cirrus SR20 Owners/Pilots Association:
As there are an increasing number of SR20’s in Europe, around the US and down under (Clyde are u on this frequency?), it may be an idea to have some kind of loose swap/exchange program, whereby US SR20 owner/pilots can spend time in Europe flying “as a loaner” one of the ‘European’ SR20’s in exchange for European owners flying a SR20 in the US. Details need to be looked into (like minimum experience xx hours, checkout by the owner/certified instructor, groundschool in local habits, how does this works out in practice with insurance, cashless ‘exchange’, operational costsharing, but no rental fees etc), but I’d like to sound this audience out if this would be an idea to pursue.
As an additional point: All the European Cirri fly with FAA “N” tailnumbers until JAA certification is obtained (and maybe continue to do so after local registration can take place), so licensewise I’d think this should be an easy one for US pilots…
