Charter, training and Cirrus authorised service centre Sweet Aviation, based at Smith Field airport, Indiana, recently became one of the first companies to add a Cirrus Vision Jet to its full charter certificate.

Since its introduction to the fleet, the CVJ has performed a good number of flights. “Passengers love the cabin space, the leg room, the enormous windows and the focus on safety across the entire design,” says director of operations and chief pilot Craig Agapie, “not to mention it being the first and only jet with a whole-airframe parachute.” The Vision Jet also boasts XM satellite radio, satellite phone and texting, complementary Bose noise cancelling headphones and an oversized inflight entertainment screen.

The company has also added a 2019 Cirrus SR22 GTS to its all-Cirrus fleet making a total of four aircraft, all 2017 and newer. 

Going forward, Agapie adds: “We're looking to add another SR pilot and we have our second SF50 pilot in training now. We are also studying the feasibility of adding a larger airframe with more range and passenger carrying capability as early as Q4 2020.”
