Photos: Cirrus SR22 G6 at Marathon Key

In December, Flying magazine Editor-in-Chief Stephen Pope flew the brand-new Cirrus SR22 G6, which graces the cover of our March 2017 issue, from his home airport in New Jersey to Marathon Key in Florida.

The clear skies and deep-blue waters of the Keys turned out to be the perfect backdrop for an air-to-air photo shoot.

Check out some of the images from a day flying out of Florida Keys Marathon Airport below.
