I am looking for a 2015 or newer SR22T fully loaded. I'd prefer a private transaction.
I am based in Bend Oregon, happy to consider an aircraft anywhere in the US. I am a previous Cirrus owner with over 1000hrs so I am very familiar with the ups and downs of ownership, eyes wide open so to speak. The usual issues in the maintenance record aren't going to freak me out. If the price is right I can close quickly.
Drop me a PM. Thanks.
David: Hi. Don't discount the 2013 and 2014 model SR22T years. Same G5 airplane. Same fun stuff. Already depreciated. Cheers, Chuck
am I allowed to ask why you are moving back to a cirrus? I think its great, just curious as to why. I thought you were heading into turbine land
Welcome back to COPA! If you ever need a turbine PA46 fix and you're down in the Houston area, let me know ... I can hook you up! :)
If I was you, I'd consider a G6 with Perspective+, if this is going to be a longer term plane...
It's great to have you back. I can't wait to read all your great posts once you get going again. Don't worry you haven't missed much around here.
In fact here's the rundown if you need it. Chuck & Co traded a lemon of a PA46 to the guys down in Vero Beach for an identical copy, a couple great guys bought and then later sold a Mustang(apparently it was fun while it lasted), and peeps still can't decide if the Eclipse is manna straight from heaven or spawn of beelzebub.
Its been 10 days and still no-one making me an offer I can't refuse! Must be someone out there desperate to trade up, down or sideways! Spring is coming and I'm sick of United!
In the midst of the brewing pandemic storm I closed on an aircraft today.
Back in 2015 I took delivery of an SR22T Xi with every extra except the sat phone. I then proceeded to fit it with every additional upgrade, AOA, O2D2, Starter, Jet blinds, etc. I loved that aircraft, but I yearned to burn Jet A. In 2018 I traded N386G for N27KG, a low time 2015 M500. I loved the pressurization, the altitude and the speed. What I didn't love was the reality of the running costs. I heavily financed the purchase and then work slowed, I didn't have the missions to keep her in the air and I didn't have the business income to justify the expense. I put her up for sale, went through a tumultuous pre-buy and eventual sold her but at least came out smarter than I went into it.
I called up the guy who now has N386G but he is loving her as much as I did so no joy in buying her back. So off I went to find as close a ride as I could to what I had. Eventually I came across an aircraft in Canada only 28 SN's from my original with every extra and lightly used the past 3 years. It took a while to close, the price was on the high side in my opinion and over the course of many weeks the owner and I (through Lone Mountain) agreed terms that were acceptable to both, no winners, no losers just a fair deal. The other thread on price is very emotional, lots of vested interests at work, especially the brokers. Personally I would rather deal directly and find terms that suit both parties and avoid the brokerage up-charge on the buyer and hit on the seller but I realize that's not for everyone.
So I am back in a Cirrus folks. I intend to get current again and make a few more videos. Right now the post-buy work and Annual are underway. I expect to be in the air in late April soonest. Until then I will be lurking and maybe jump in here and there if I read something I haven't read a thousand times before ;-)
That's great David. Congrats! I would like a private seller to contact me as well for N/A G3-G6. Let's do a fair deal.
Welcome back, David! Looking forward to more videos!
