DULUTH, Minn. – Cirrus Aircraft’s JumpStart Program will place 12 brand new and fully equipped SR20s at Cirrus training centers in select markets across the country, to give more new pilots a comprehensive introduction to general aviation by learning to fly in a Cirrus.
DULUTH, Minn. — Cirrus Aircraft has partnered with Lake Superior College to develop an Aircraft Assembly Pre-employment Program. The program is part of a Minnesota Job Skills Program Grant for workforce development and is aimed at recruiting, training and preparing low-income individuals for assembly jobs at Cirrus.
OSHKOSH — During an opening day news conference at AirVenture, officials from Cirrus Aircraft reported that the Vision SF50 personal jet program has made significant progress toward certification, including acquisition of manufacturing equipment to build the new airplane. The company confirms that first delivery is still scheduled for late 2015.
Cirrus Aircraft is expanding its Grand Forks, N.D., facility to accommodate a new autoclave oven in preparation for production of the Vision SF50 jet.
Cirrus Aircraft has introduced “Cirrus Approach” — a multi-year training initiative designed to enhance pilot safety and reduce the general aviation accident rate.
After years of stagnation, development of Cirrus Aircraft’s Vision SF50 jet is full steam ahead.
Cirrus Aircraft recently unveiled its latest SR22 and SR22T models — dubbed Generation 5 — with a host of improvements, dominated by a 200-pound increase in the airplanes’ load carrying capability.
Increasing the certified gross weight to 3,600 pounds increases the flexibility of the airplanes, according to Dale Klapmeier, Cirrus co-founder and CEO. “It’s the most asked for improvement from our customers,” he said.
