Re: Cirrus Personal Jet

Mase,
That's the original proof-of-concept bird that first flew back in 2008. They are now flying "C-Zero", the first conforming prototype. They plan to have three flying by the end of the year, after which I understand the original bird will be retired. Worth noting that the tail feathers have been enlarged and moved some, and there are now anti-yaw vanes on the lower fins. I believe that after it completes its test program, C-Zero will be the bird they will use for the CAPS testing out at El Centro, CA.

best,
Andy
