Bringing Home a New Turbo Cirrus

The author in 'his' Cirrus SR22
One of the best parts of traveling to the factory to pick up your airplane is the opportunity to see how the factory constructs and assembles the airplane. At Cirrus every customer picking up an airplane gets a chance to walk the line, seeing in detail how an SR22 (or SR20) goes from basic parts, or in some cases, raw materials, to a completed, ready to fly airplane.
