In deciding which to buy, I’ve test flown the SR-22, the Mooney Bravo and the Lancair 350. All three planes have their advantages and disadvantages, but one concern I have with the SR-22 is the wide wing span of 38’ 6" (the Mooney and Lancair are around 36’ wide). My hanger door is only 40’ wide (I currently own a Piper Dakota with a 36’ wing span). That leaves very little tolerance – 9" on each side – to push and pull a SR-22 into the hanger without dinging the ends of the wings.
Does anyone keep a SR-22 in a 40’ hanger? Do you have any problems getting the plane in and out without bumping into the door frame or side walls?
Any “real world” feedback would be appreciated, because at this point I’m about to elminate the SR-22 from consideration due to this concern.
