Swedish University Purchases Fleet of Cirrus

Assumes Leadership Role in Modern Flight Training

Cirrus Design Corporation announced on Friday that Lund University School of Aviation, Lund, Sweden, has taken delivery of five Cirrus aircraft.  The modern SR20-G2s replace 18 of the university's outdated aircraft in their fleet of primary and advanced trainers.

Established in 1666, Lund University is the largest institution in Sweden for research and higher education.  The aviation school, renowned for their commercial pilot program, selected Cirrus from a field of worthy competitors chiefly due to the advanced engineering and safety features.  According to Lund University flight school representative Nicklas Dahlstrom, "The University is vigilant about providing the highest level of safety possible for our students so safety mechanisms like CAPS [Cirrus Airframe Parachute System] offer students and the University added security".  

Cirrus' modern technology attracted Lund University Professor Sidney Dekker to the aircraft.  "As the primary training center for Sweden's commercial pilots, Lund students will learn to fly in an aircraft equipped with very similar avionics and systems integration found in most new commercial aircraft", Dekker stated.

John M. Bingham, executive vice president of sales for Cirrus believes the fleet sale to Lund University is just the beginning as more progressive institutions realize the value of safety and glass cockpits in primary trainers.  "It seems logical that students train on the modern aircraft systems they will eventually fly commercially. Training on technologically advanced aircraft will help create a safer pilot", Bingham concluded.
