After 4-years, the Cirrus SR22T G6 has outsold its G5 predecessor. More than 738 customers have taken delivery of the G6 Turbo which was introduced in 2017. That’s 155 or 27% more buyers than the Cirrus SR22T G5 achieved in its 4-year production run from 2013 – 2016. Both are favored turbo models but the pilot attraction keeps getting stronger with each generation advancement. Cirrus Aircraft has the most popular piston-engine turbo ever built.

The desire for turbocharged power has carried Cirrus Aircraft over another milestone – Cirrus has more turbo deliveries than all other aircraft manufacturers combined (since 2007). In 2019, Cirrus sold 200 SR22T Turbo planes and surpassed 2,134 turbo deliveries.
Currently, there are only four companies manufacturing competing piston single-engine turbos. The Cirrus SR22T Turbo outsells the Piper M350 about 10:1, Cessna Turbo Stationair ~5:1, Mooney Acclaim ~29:1.
Cirrus SR22T Turbo climbs like a beast and is designed to run cooler than predecessor turbos. It’s the best selling turbo piston airplane by more than a mile.
In 2019, Cirrus will surpass two-thousand (2,000) turbocharged airplane deliveries. Pilots’ desire for turbocharged power has carried the company past another milestone – Cirrus has more turbo deliveries than all other turbo single-engine manufactured planes combined since 2007.
In 2018, Cirrus sold 180 turbo SR22T planes. Almost half of their piston engine deliveries are turbo. In just twelve years, customers have purchased more than 1,964 turbocharged planes from Cirrus. It’s the best selling turbo piston airplane.
Continuous improvements to the plane’s design have won customers over. Along with Cirrus, there are now only three other companies manufacturing traditional “four-adult” piston turbo single-engine planes. Currently, the Cirrus SR22T Turbo outsells the Piper Malibu Mirage 9:1 and the Cessna Turbo Stationair 6:1.
The Cirrus “SR-series of high-performance piston airplanes are the best-selling aircraft in the world for  consecutive years – with over 7,260 aircraft operating in over 60 countries.”
Congratulations to the entire Cirrus Aircraft team.

From 2007 into 2008, it’s estimated that Cirrus shipped about 290 generation three SR22TN turbo normalized airplanes equipped with Avidyne avionics. Recently, nine of those planes were posted online for sale in the United States, which represents about 3% of the manufacturer production on the market. Anything less than 3% is considered supply contraction. Continue reading “What are the asking prices for Avidyne SR22-G3 Turbo planes?”→
In 1922, Amelia Earhart set the feminine altitude record of 4,267 meters (14,000 feet). A courageous and capable aviator, and inspiration to many. Go women in aviation.
“Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds, –
And done a hundred things You have not dreamed of —
Wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence.
Hovering there, I’ve chased the shouting wind along,
And flung my eager craft through footless halls of air . . . Continue reading “High Flight 2017”→
Pilots have a different perspective. Flying above everything on the ground and at times soaring into the flight levels. This year our Cirrus SR22 Turbo high flight was 20,000 feet on a short cross-country (less than 3 hours). Continue reading “High Flight 2016”→
