After 3 great years with my 2007 Cirrus SR22TN I decided it was time to sell it to buy a bigger plane to accommodate my family going forward. As we all know our missions change. I will miss her as she is been very reliable airplane since I have owned her. I have upgraded a lot of items in the plane. Its a turn key Cirrus. If you know if anyone looking Steel Aviation has the listing. She needs a new home that will take care of her like I did. The motor and propeller have under 225hrs on it since overhaul 18 months ago. Engine still under warranty till June. Upgraded avionics across the board. Can't ask for a better Cirrus SR22TN Avidyne setup. Pass the word on for me.
What did you end up moving up to? Beautiful aircraft you have for sale! Would enjoy a turbo myself.
Believe it or not I’m buying a Cessna 421C. I need room for 4-5 passages and a turbo prop just won’t fit my mission. Pressurization will be great for a change as well. I have many hours in the Cessna twins and truly love the 421’s. I will miss the Cirrus but will probably still rent one ever now and then.
A C414 without the geared engines is also a great bird!
Welcome to the Twin Cessna club! I made a similar change but still look forward to as much Cirrus stick time as I can get!
Aw, the Golden Eagle. Really nice airplane. My father and I considered buying one together until it dawned at me that if we were flying along and an engine quit, he'd look at me and say "look what just happened to your engine." He laughed when I told him that and said "Yeah, probably"
We didn't buy it.
I have been in both. I am normally very gentle on the throttles already with the turbo so handling the geared engines will be very similar to how I fly already. Also, 375hp each helps with performance. Both are great planes and I wish someone would come out with a STC for a diesel. I think this could revive the twin market IMO.
