Following that, I went through the customer briefing with concierge Amanda McGovern. As crazy as it might sound, we discussed such things as keeping the airplane maintained, complying with ADs and making sure the airplane is properly registered. It occurred to me part-way through the process that a good number of new Cirrus owners are also new pilots, so a lot of the institutional knowledge we longtime pilots have just isn't there. Cirrus, very sensibly, doesn't leave the learning process to chance. We covered the subject of approved engine oils and engine break-in procedures, tire and brake care, winter operations, the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System, and the Amsafe airbag seat belts. We even covered how to clean the airplane, which, again, isn't as simple a subject as you might think.
