The step-up aspect of the jet remains an important element for Cirrus's business plan, giving operators of SR20 and SR22 pistons an airplane to aspire to. Exactly what the pros and cons of "peeling off" the Vision program are remains a complicated question. Besides the obvious element of funding, Dale said the Vision program "needs dedicated focus." Asked if accelerating the developmental time frame was one of the goals, Wouters said he didn't believe peeling off the program would affect the timetable for better or worse, but rather, could help to organize the financial structure of the company. The current schedule calls for certification and first deliveries in 2012, but Cirrus acknowledges that without an infusion of funding, whatever form that takes, that timetable is unrealistic.
