Cir­rus Air­craft re­cently chris­tened its new cus­tomer de­liv­ery cen­ter in Knoxville, Ten­nessee

Cir­rus Air­craft re­cently chris­tened its new cus­tomer de­liv­ery cen­ter in Knoxville, Ten­nessee, and with it comes a whole new way of tak­ing de­liv­ery of an air­plane. This SR22 GTS was des­tined for a cus­tomer in the Czech Repub­lic when we vis­ited to try out the new Vi­sion Jet full-flight sim­u­la­tor, see the just-opened fac­tory ser­vice cen­ter and ex­pe­ri­ence what it means when Cir­rus ex­ecs say they don’t want to op­er­ate a great com­pany, they want to be truly world-class. For each de­liv­ery, the owner is whisked into the hangar in an Audi Q7 SUV, where a red car­pet leads to the air­plane as mu­sic plays and spot­lights home in on the main at­trac­tion. Dur­ing train­ing, which in the SR22 usu­ally lasts three to five days, cus­tomers are treated to some in­cred­i­ble South­ern hospi­tal­ity. Look for a full re­port in an up­com­ing is­sue.
