If you know the number of planes that shipped and the current market availability you’ll be a more informed buyer and seller. From 2001-2004, Cirrus shipped 818 SR22-G1 planes. But only five SR22-G1 pre-owned planes were listed on Controller for sale in the United States in the fall of 2017. That’s less than one percent of Generation One airplanes. A very low inventory of pre-owned planes for sale.
The third wave of Cirrus SR22-G1s were shipped from late 2002 into 2004 (serial numbers 435-819). In this Segment, Cirrus achieved another milestone by creating the first general aviation airplane with a “glass panel.” And, conventional six-pack flight instruments literally became a GA thing of the past.
The Avidyne Entegra Primary Flight Display was offered initially as a $24,500 option. But it was such a hit almost every plane going out was purchased with the PFD. So, Cirrus made the glass panel standard equipment by mid-2003. Several equipment configurations were marketed with these planes. Let’s look at the details: Continue reading “What equipment shipped on Cirrus SR22-G1 Segment 3”→

By the late 1990’s the Klapmeier brothers had moved away from constructing kit planes. They had a bigger vision that would change general aviation. In 1998 the FAA certified their first airplane – The Cirrus SR20. Nine certified SR20’s were shipped in 1999 as reported by the General Aviation Management Association (GAMA). Two years later the SR22 was certified and GA would not be the same. Continue reading “Cirrus SR22 Generation One (G1) Introduction”→
