Cirrus - A Personal Look


Cirrus SR20


Cirrus SR22

Big thanks to the friendly people of RexAir Flight & Maintenance Center at Naples Municipal Airport (KAPF) for giving me a close-up look at two beautiful Cirrus aircraft, an SR20 and SR22. The aircraft were in for routine maintenance checks at the time.

Before today, I didn’t know that Cirrus produced two models of this popular aircraft. With a 200hp engine, the SR20 cruises at 150 knots and has a range of 627 miles. With a more powerful 310hp engine, the SR22 can travel 1,207 miles at 211 knots. Both of these aircraft feature the innovative Cirrus Aircraft Parachute System (CAPS).

The RexAir crew left me with one more helpful piece of information. For US $390-$540,000, Cirrus will build one to my specifications. A guy can dream, right? At least I have the IF version at my fingertips.

(Sorry, I only had time to take a couple of quick pictures. Hopefully, I’ll get more next time.)
