Cirrus announcement announced
      #340297 - 04/13/12 03:13 PM

Originally sourced from the Wichita Eagle:

Cirrus Aircraft to make an “important announcement” Wednesday

Cirrus Aircraft, based in Duluth, Minn., plans to make an “important announcement” on Wednesday, the company said in a video on its website.

The announcement is “the next leap forward” for the company, it teased.

The company, which competes with Cessna Aircraft, produces the four-seat composite SR20, SR22 and SR22T airplanes. Retail prices total $289,900, $449,900 and $544,900 respectively.

Last year, Cirrus delivered 255 planes and posted billings of $150.3 million.

Does that make your post an announcement of the Cirrus announcement announcement? ;-)

As to the "breathlessness" of the announcement of the announcement, all I'll say is that the person I suspect involved seems to think that between his MBA and visits from The Good Idea Fairy, he's an advertising genius.

Consensus is that the announcement will be firm dates for the jet, with a Garmin 2000 cockpit. Dark horse betting is on an announcement that it will be built in China.

Side bets are on when they will announce right shifts of the above dates.


Best,
Andy

>>Consensus is that the announcement will be firm dates for the jet, with a Garmin 2000 cockpit.<< On their website so far, just that they have funding to take the jet through certification - which is certainly saying something, but it came across to me as somewhat short-on-specifics tap dancing. Maybe there's something more formal to follow.

My uninformed interpretation is that the company was hoping for more from its sponsor than it got, but had to go ahead with the promised announcement. Or perhaps the MBA marketing genius identified by Adm. Andy plans to dribble out details over time.
