Cirrus Aircraft reported that new customer aircraft deliveries of its SR line of aircraft reached a recent multi-year high of 317 units for 2016. Further highlighting the year were initial customer deliveries of the world’s first single-engine Personal Jet, the Cirrus Vision Jet, as three units were delivered to customers in the U.S.
Total new aircraft deliveries in 2016 mark the third consecutive year that Cirrus has delivered more than 300 units and highlights steady growth over the past eight years – an increase of almost 20% since 2009.
The record performance propelled Cirrus to a global fleet of more than 6,500 SR series aircraft in over 60 countries.
In addition to the strong delivery performance and product line expansion, Cirrus capped off the record-setting year by launching the all new G6 SR22T, SR22 and SR20 product line, opening the Vision Center – the reimagined Cirrus Aircraft Customer Experience Center – in Knoxville, TN, expanding Duluth manufacturing operations, providing technologically advanced aircraft to global training fleets, and receiving the Joseph T. Nall Safety Award from the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA).
