Ascension Air is offering three new fully equipped 2012 Cirrus Aircraft SR22Ts to general aviation pilots through its fractional ownership program.
A story posted at the Grand Forks (N.D.) Herald reports that Cirrus is laying off 32 employee from its Grand Forks plant, and another 26 at its Duluth headquarters. From the story:
“We had been staffed to a level higher than current demand and (Wednesday’s) changes are not a reflection of reduced demand,” Todd Simmons, Cirrus’ vice president of marketing said. “It’s a reflection of getting late in the year and knowing that we are building airplanes for the new year, and the first quarter is a time of weaker deliveries and demand.”
Cirrus Aircraft has appointed Jon Dauplaise vice president of domestic sales.
He will be responsible for the Cirrus Aircraft North American direct sales team and the expansion of Cirrus sales in the United States and Canada.
Cirrus Aircraft has selected Garmin as its avionics provider for production models of the Vision SF50 personal jet.The Vision flying test aircraft, V1, will have the Cirrus Perspective by GarminTM avionics system installed in early April — the same as is available on the SR-series of piston aircraft by Cirrus — and continue its flight test schedule.
