PlaneSmart! Aviation and Cirrus Design have completed a multimillion-dollar deal to replace its current fleet of Cirrus SR22-G2s with all new turbo Cirrus SR22-G3s. The transaction enables PlaneSmart! to offer the best transportation package on the market to its clients.
The new Cirrus SR22-G3, or “Generation Three,” is a result of more than 700 refinements over its predecessor, the SR22-G2. PlaneSmart!’s new SR22-G3s will arrive from the factory with virtually every option Cirrus offers, including factory installed air-conditioning and a new turbo-normalized engine, which can maintain almost 100 percent power all the way to the certified ceiling of 25,000 feet.
“Our customers are excited about the arrival of their new and more capable aircraft,” said Jeffery A. Cullen, president and co-founder. “In addition to the enhanced capabilities associated with the turbocharged aircraft, the new airplanes offer the perfect combination of performance, navigation and safety features that satisfy our objective of offering the best fractional aircraft ownership experience available to our customers. The new aircraft also positions us well with a platform suited for growth as we continue expanding into additional markets.”
All of PlaneSmart!’s aircraft will be identically equipped for ease of operation for clients.
“Obviously, we’re pleased to have a customer like PlaneSmart! choose Cirrus products to pass along to our joint customers,” remarked Alan Klapmeier, Cirrus CEO and chairman. “Their dedication to providing top-of-the-line products and services to customers through a fractional share program is impressive.”
PlaneSmart! Aviation is headquartered in Addison, Texas. Cirrus’ headquarters are in Duluth, Minn.
