ANN's Major Sponsor For Special Coverage Of AOPA EXPO 2005... Cirrus Design

Who Builds The Best Selling Airplane In GA? Cirrus Design!

Aviation seems to like to repeat itself -- with the birth of aviation being credited to the dedicated work of two brothers who loved everything about the world of flight and changed the world... to a recent rebirth of aviation... again credited to two brothers who love everything about the world of flight and are just now helping to change the aviation world in ways that would have staggered the brothers Wright barely 100 years ago.

Alan and Dale Klapmeier founded Cirrus Aviation in 1984 with a dream to design and build affordable airplanes that deliver greater control, more comfort and added levels of safety.

Today, Cirrus is the world's second largest manufacturer of single-engine, piston-powered aircraft. Their SR22 is the world's best selling plane in its class. Their SR20 is an uncommonly capable four-place with extraordinary economy and great performance. And... if you check back with us over the next few days, we'll have even more exciting Cirrus Design products and developments to share with you.

The brothers tell us that, "Because we design with the mind of an engineer and the heart of a pilot, we build planes that are both sensible and exhilarating. It's how we were meant to fly."

Read ANN's Five Part Series on flying the SR22:
