Cirrus Aircraft’s new VisionAir program plans to make the ownership of a new single-engine Vision Jet a complete turnkey operation designed especially for people who might be new to owning a turbine aircraft, or might not even be pilots. But VisionAir is more than simply covering the tricky parts of aircraft ownership like maintenance and hangar issues. With VisionAir, Cirrus Aircraft promises to take care of all the details, from preparing the aircraft for flight to rolling out the red carpet for passengers and even stocking the owner’s favorite refreshments onboard. Cirrus says it delivered its 200th Vision Jet last month.

The comprehensive program includes an on-demand professional pilot, concierge services, complete maintenance coverage, aircraft management oversight and storage, as well as options for insurance coverage and referrals for professional tax advice. VisionAir goes beyond fractional ownership and charter services to offer full ownership and what Cirrus Aircraft dubs “a consistent world-class experience.”

Cirrus began deliveries of the original Vision Jet in 2016 followed by an enhanced version, the G2 Vision Jet in 2019. Both aircraft include Cirrus’ revolutionary full airframe parachute system for emergencies. Further enhancements to the Vision Jet were announced in late 2019, with the addition of the Safe Return Emergency Autoland System—a revolutionary feature that allows passengers to land the Vision Jet in an emergency situation with the simple touch of a button. The combination of Safe Return and the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) provides the ultimate level of safety and assurance exclusively to Vision Jet operators.

At the moment, VisionAir is only available at Cirrus Aircraft’s newest factory-direct facility at McKinney, Texas (KTKI), located in the Dallas Metroplex area, but it promises more locations will be coming online soon.
