Cirrus Vision SF50 Jet completes first flight

Cirrusss

uluth-based Cirrus Aircraft has announced the successful first certification test flight of its personal jet.
The single-engine, seven-seat Vision SF50 flew a one-hour test flight out of Duluth International Airport, checking controllability, manoeuvrability and speed as part of the FAA certification process.

Chief Test Pilot and Director of Engineering Flight Test Mike Stevens, explained the jet prototype, “performed very well and all systems functioned properly, just what you want in a first flight.”

The aircraft is priced at just under $2 million and features a cruising speed of 300kt, carbon-fibre structure, parachute system and advanced avionics.
Cirrus has said it will start delivering the aircraft late next year to more than 500 customers who are already signed up.
