Transitioning to jets is a big deal for any pilot, whether you fly for the airlines, the military, or your own one-ship family transport organization. For that last group, the change from piston power to a jet is striking, especially when you are flying it yourself as a single pilot. The workload might grow, but so do the rewards.

I had the good fortune to fly a Vision Jet for an article I wrote in 2017, and what I noticed first was how roomy the cabin was. It felt like my family would be as comfortable there as they are in the den at home. Next was the extra speed. Destinations that normally were two hours away at 150 ktas suddenly were just one hour away. I immediately understood the appeal and was not surprised to hear that Cirrus delivered its 500th Vision Jet last fall. The fleet is large enough that I encounter the jets regularly on the ramp at Essex County Airport near my New Jersey home.

This Vision Jet has 760 hours on the airframe and on its Williams FJ33-5A engine since new. The full FADEC engine has a 4,000-hour TBO and has been managed under the Williams International TAPS Blue maintenance program.

The panel features the Garmin G3000 integrated flight deck with  the Cirrus Perspective+ Touchscreen interface, synthetic vision, Iridium satellite communications, TCAS, real-time weather radar, enhanced vision systems, Jeppesen ChartView, and more.

Pilots interested in moving up the performance ladder from a Cirrus SR22 or other fast piston models should consider this Cirrus Vision Jet, which was designed with transitioning piston PICs in mind, and is available for $2.9 million on AircraftForSale.
