ANN Announces One Of Our Favorite 2006 AirVenture Special
Coverage Major Sponsors: Cirrus Design
Ok... we've already
told you how cool this year's coverage is going to be and how hard
we've been working... but we did we mention (enough) just how
expensive it is to support nearly a dozen people, cart them halfway
across the country, and then make sure that they're fed and watered
on a somewhat regular basis?
Well... take our word for it -- this is no small endeavor... and
a really costly one, to boot. So that's why we're so thrilled (OK,
relieved) to speak up and thank the folks who are paying the bills
this week. Some of the finest companies in the business have ponied
up some very serious bucks so that YOU can read the most
comprehensive coverage we know how to offer.
What else is there to say... we want a turbo SR22 BAD (and not
simply for the off chance of getting to see SR22 owner Angelina
Jolie at the next COPA gathering.) It's not surprising that the
combination of a turbocharger... and a hot new Hartzell prop...
makes a wonderful aircraft even more so. Cirrus has an SR model for
everybody... from the VFR-spec SRV, to the midrange SR20 and on
through the SR22 model line... and all of them equipped with the
groundbreaking CAPS emergency parachute system.
Even if you've been living in a remote cave on an otherwise
uninhabited island off lower Botswana, you'd still have to know
that Cirrus Design that is turning this industry on it's ear right
now. More important; we know a few things that we can't quite tell
you yet that are going to make this company even more notable than
it already is... and that's a REALLY tough thing to do. Cirrus
Design is poised to make a number of announcements (again!) that
are going to have an amazing effect on this industry and help to
revitalize the world of general aviation and put more capable safer
airplanes into the hands of flyers all over the world...
