Cirrus produced about 1,661 generation two SR22-G2 airplanes between 2004 and spring 2007 (serial numbers 22-0821 to 22-2437). The acronym GTS was introduced to designate a “fully loaded” airplane and sold for about $100,000 more than the base model. So, value comparison on a less-equipped non-GTS planes is entirely dependent on options and owner upgrades.
Even generation two GTS models are not necessarily equipped the same. That’s because Cirrus added new options, sometimes in the same year, and certain items like air conditioning were excluded. So, research carefully and compare GTS model equipment.
In early 2018, Controller listed only eight pre-owned Generation Two Special SR22-G2 planes. We divided the GTS list into two groups – planes with air conditioning and those without. Factory air conditioning began with serial number 1864. Earlier versions of Cirrus air conditioning were post factory installations with Keith systems. It’s about a $30,000 plus aftermarket option. Air conditioning was included on four of the pre-owned planes listed on Controller.
The asking prices for GTS models with air conditioning ranged from $239,900 – $269,000. Prices for GTS models without air conditioning ranged from $219,900 – $235,000. The tables in the appendix below list more detail including total time on airframe (TTAF).
Owners of these aircraft should have completed the 10-year CAPS maintenance cycle. The cost for CAPS replacement has been reviewed in previous articles, which had a price range during this prior period of about $13,000 – $15,000.
Many pilots believe the SR22-G2 is a sweet spot among pre-owned Cirrus Aircraft. To be an informed buyer, you’ll want to research the market and perform your own due diligence.
