What’s the purchase price for a SR22 pre-G2 aircraft? Avionics equipment can vary a lot on pre-G2 airplanes. The price should reflect equipment, upgrades, total time and condition.
In 2001, the first SR22’s were equipped with “six pack instruments,” and an Arnav ICDS-200 Multi-Function Display. It has somewhat lower screen resolution and fewer functions than the Avidyne MFD (cannot display CMax). I believe the Arnav MFD’s are on SR22’s with serial numbers 0002 though 0141. The Avidyne MFD eventually became standard equipment by 2002.
In 2002, the Avidyne Entegra Primary Flight Display (PFD) was a $24,500 upgrade to the SR22’s “B” configuration, which replaced the Sandel SN3308 EHSI and repositioned the back-up indicators for attitude, airspeed, and altitude to the lower panel just below the PFD.
The 2003 SR22 pre-G2 original base price was $313,900 for a well-equipped IFR airplane with Avidyne PFD & MFD. Factory options included upgrades to the S-Tec autopilot, a Garmin GNS 430 instead of the standard GNS 420, L3 Stormscope, SkyWatch Traffic, Avidyne EMax engine and fuel monitoring system, and the TKS inadvertent Ice protection.
There are no pre-G2 “GTS” planes. The Cirrus “GTS” designation did not become available until 2004. But many pre-G2 planes on the market today do have significant owner upgrades.
A very desirable owner upgrade is WAAS, which I understand, costs about $8,000 to install on Cirrus planes. It improves instrument approach accuracy and provides one piece of equipment you’ll need for “ADS-B Out,” which is an installed certified WAAS for accurate position reporting. Portable equipment will not meet the “ADS-B Out” mandate.
Other desirable owner upgrades include: DFC-90 autopilot, and air-conditioning Supplemental Type Certificate (STC), which was not available as a Cirrus factory option until July 2006.
For pre-G2 planes, you should verify whether it has a four or six-point engine mount. The Cirrus runs smoother on a six-point mount and that became standard equipment on all Cirrus planes before the G2 model roll-out. Upgrading a pre-G2 plane to a six-point mount costs more than $10,000.
Cirrus produced about 771 SR22 pre-G2 airplanes. They were manufactured from 2001 through 2003. Only a hand-full of these planes are on the market.
This past week, Controller advertised 17 pre-G2 planes that were either 2003 or 2002. There were no 2001 models on Controller. Two planes were excluded from this analysis because one was foreign registered and another was a fractional sale.
Two Centennials were also excluded, which left just a baker’s dozen for this simple price check (Centennial pricing will be in next week’s blog).
How much does a SR22 pre-G2 cost?
Note: A price outlier was excluded from the above price range, based on a quick review of the plane’s equipment and total time.
Average total time on the pre-G2 plane was 1,120 hours. Low total time was 650 and high was about 1,480 hours.
This is a brief intro to the Cirrus SR22 pre-G2 aircraft and a high-level check of pre-owned pricing. To be an informed buyer, you’ll want to research the market and perform your own due diligence.
