Top 5 High-End Piston Aircraft AOPA Financed in 2020

“It’s not surprising to see Cirrus aircraft at the top of this list. In 20 years, Cirrus Aircraft has come to dominate this market from their little manufacturing plant in Duluth, Minnesota . . . More importantly, Cirrus Aircraft has established dozens and dozens of Cirrus Service Centers around the globe, giving potential owners the confidence to know wherever they are, there’s a service center near them with the parts they need. And because Cirrus invested heavily in the quality of their R&D and manufacturing, there’s no question of the high-quality fit and finish of any undamaged SR22 on the market. It’s a well-know entity. It’s commoditized. It’s’ fast. And its got a parachute. The parachute is not a gimmick. It’s a real thing that, as of 2019, has been documented to have saved 401 lives. The only thing the SR22 lacks is pressurization.”

“The Bonanza is the top choice for pilots where elevation is not an issue but load carrying capacity is. Most Bonanzas will carry five passengers, and a good amount of luggage, 400-600 nm. The other advantages of a Bonanza include how economical it is to operate while still being a fast aircraft. Our experience has shown for people equally smitten with the Bonanza and the SR22, the choice often comes down to useful load.”
