Fed Alert: 250 Inspectors to Visit Cirrus in Six Months!
It's going to be wall-to-wall Feds in Duluth for the next few
months... Cirrus and the FAA have announced the launch of a joint
program designed to provide 250 FAA Inspectors with familiarization
of the next generation of personal aircraft.
Advanced design composite aircraft and all-glass cockpits are
becoming more common as personal aviation evolves into the 21st
Century. As a leader in composite aircraft design and manufacture,
Cirrus will provide a thorough familiarization program to the
The familiarization program has two tracks for the two different
types of inspectors who will attend. 125 Flight Operations
Inspectors will receive ground and flight familiarization in the
SR22 as their primary means of gaining a more in depth
understanding of the flight characteristics and avionics of a
modern aircraft. Concurrently, 125 Airworthiness Inspectors will
participate in seminars that focus on composite structure and
repair, advanced avionics and integration (PFD & MFD), and the
ballistic recovery system.
Advanced airframe and avionics technologies will one day be the
norm throughout the GA fleet, thus the FAA recognized the need to
be proactive in their educational approach to understanding the
technologies. Cirrus was the logical choice to launch the program
given the 20 years of experience in composite manufacturing and a
leadership role in bringing advanced avionics suites to this
segment of the GA fleet. Cirrus manufactures and markets composite
personal aviation aircraft, incorporating advanced technologies
that result in high levels of performance, safety and comfort.
