Buying a Cirrus SR22

Buying a Cirrus SR22

If you’re considering buying a new Cirrus SR22 G6, or a used Cirrus aircraft, we can help!

There’s a lot to consider when purchasing a Cirrus SR20 or SR22, especially if you’re trying to decide whether to buy a new 2019 Cirrus SR22 G6, or a used aircraft that’s a few years old. Not all of the cost factors are obvious, and buying a new Cirrus is sometimes less than expensive than it first appears! There are multiple tax considerations, which vary from state-to-state and upon whether you have a business use for the aircraft. Renting the aircraft through a local flying club can also reduce your overall cost of flying and affect your taxes in ways that may favor purchasing a new plane.

After you’ve made a decision on which Cirrus to purchase, unless you’re an experienced pilot, you’ll want help in getting the airplane ferried to your home airport. In addition, your insurance company require that you received Cirrus Transition training from a Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilot, or CSIP instructor.

I can help you with your purchasing decision, ferrying your aircraft to your home airport, and giving you any instruction. I’m a Platinum CSIP, which means that in addition to being factory trained at Cirrus HQ, I have over 1,800 hours of time flying Cirrus aircraft. Only about 15% of all CSIPs are Platinum CSIPs. I’m experienced in flying virtually every combination of Cirrus SR20 and SR22 produced since the aircraft were first introduced in 1999. In addition, I’m the author of Max Trescott’s G1000 & Perspective Glass Cockpit Handbook, so when it comes to understanding the Cirrus Perspective avionics, I literally wrote the book!

I help people around the world with their Cirrus purchase decisions, so if you like my inputs, please contact me as early in your decision making process as possible, so that I can provide you the most assistance. You can phone me at 650-967-2500, or send me an email.
