Hi Mase,
Admiral Andy arranged an extra special tour of the Cirrus facility during the Duluth gig. Included a presentation with Q&A with Dale Klapmeier and also the chief engineer. Also Q&A with several other knowledgeable insiders during the tour. We saw a lot of activity surrounding final testing of the Cirrus Vision SF50 jet and establishment of production tooling.

It was good getting the inside poop via our very own Admiral Andy on Cirrus and COPA.
As with many aircraft businesses Cirrus has a complicated and convoluted history. All centered around a very slick airplane with Chinese involvement, bean counters and great animosity between two very interesting brothers. Great success coupled with emanate financial demise.

Regards,
Tom Charlton (who’s optimistic about the Cirrus jet but doesn’t have the money to put where his mouth is)<g>
