To find the number of pre-owned Cirrus airplanes for sale many pilots will go to popular websites, such as Controller or Trade-a-plane. In July 2017, there were 195 Cirrus piston airplanes for sale on Controller. Here’s the summary listing on the Controller website.

I’m writing to the pilot that’s considering the transition from flying aluminum into advanced performance composite aircraft and in particular Cirrus Aircraft. In this series of blogs, I’ve worked to answer some of the questions that I encountered during the pre-buy, purchase process, and early ownership.
Why is it beneficial to organize pre-owned Cirrus Aircraft into five budget categories? Because it provides a framework to compare available quantity and asking prices among planes manufactured with similar design features.
This past month, there were four Turbo Cirrus SR22T-G5 listed on Controller for sale in the United States. Expect an asking price of $729,000 for a low-time turbocharged G5 with air-conditioning (see appendix for details).
The pre-owned G5 turbos carry a significant premium, of about $129,000 over their normally aspirated G5 brethren (see last week’s post on non-turbo Cirrus SR22-G5). Continue reading “How much does a Turbo Cirrus SR22T-G5 cost?”
This past month there were three non-turbo SR22-G5 listings on Controller. Expect an asking price of about $600,000 for a low-time SR22-G5 with air-conditioning. See appendix for details. Continue reading “How much does a Cirrus SR22-G5 cost?”
What is the price for a 2010 turbocharged Cirrus Perspective SR22T? This past month, there were fifteen SR22T all factory Continental “turbocharged” aircraft listed on Controller for sale in the United States. That number moved up to twenty at the time of this post.
What is the price for a turbo-normalized Cirrus with Perspective by Garmin flight deck? Prices and quantities are stable, except for the 2008 model year. That’s the first year Cirrus Perspective by Garmin was available and only three 2008 Perspectives were on Controller this past month.
In all, there were a baker’s dozen of Turbo Cirrus Perspective SR22TN’s for sale in the United States. The majority of planes were GTSx models (10/13), most had air-conditioning (8/13), and all had the yaw damper option except one (12/13).
What is the price for turbo-normalized Cirrus SR22TN-G3 aircraft with the Avidyne flight deck? Compared to several years ago, the asking prices are stable and the quantity of listings are about the same.
This past month, there were a dozen (12) of these turbo’s for sale in the United States. A majority of the planes were GTS models (9/12), most had air-conditioning (8/12), and many had significant owner upgrades, such as, DFC-90 autopilot.
What are the asking prices for (non-turbo) Cirrus SR22-G3 aircraft with the Avidyne Entegra flight deck? Compared to several years ago, asking prices are higher and there are fewer G3 planes to choose among. Continue reading “How much does a Cirrus SR22-G3 Avidyne cost?”
The first Cirrus Perspective by Garmin SR22 was manufactured in 2008. It’s a coveted year for buyers wanting the Perspective, and the first production year should provide the lowest pre-owned asking prices, but that’s not the situation anymore.
Currently, demand is greater than supply and it may stay that way. This month, there were no 2008 models listed on Controller. This past summer, I saw one 2008 normally aspirated (non-turbo) Perspective but the asking price after adjusting for total time was higher than that of a turbo Cirrus Perspective SR22TN.
