A quick reference list to Cirrus SR22 Generations manufactured

Here’s a quick reference list of Cirrus SR22 Generations that have been manufactured. If you’re interested in transitioning to Cirrus Aircraft this may be a good starting point for categorizing significant model changes important to you and establishing a budget. You’ll benefit from having a framework to compare aircraft if you’re in the market to buy.  Knowing the design changes and production quantities will help you better understand how supply and demand affects market prices.

In 2013, I made the transition into a pre-owned Cirrus Aircraft. I bought a 2008 Cirrus Perspective by Garmin™ SR22TN Turbo within a shared ownership. Over the past four years I’ve enjoyed about 500 hours of flying time. It’s a great airplane.

Before making my purchase, I wanted information on operating costs, design changes and units shipped. That information was not always available or easy to find. So, I created wikWings to share it forward.

Over the next several weeks, we’ll dive into the SR22 series by generation.  Please share your comments and let me know what information is important to you in making an airplane purchase decision.

Let’s get started!
