Following growth of the Vision Jet, including becoming the world's best-selling jet in general aviation earlier this year and delivering the 200th Vision Jet last month, Cirrus Aircraft recently announced the addition of Vision Jet type rating training in Europe through an exclusive partnership with Aero Poznan, located in Poznan, Poland. Aero Poznan's programme includes the ability to train in a Vision Jet simulator, the only simulator in the world outside of Cirrus Aircraft's flagship Vision Center campus in Tennessee.
Designed to fulfil the requirements of the EASA, the training programme at Aero Poznan provides the same world-class flight training experience as Vision Jet pilots and owners receive at Cirrus Aircraft's Vision Center in Knoxville, Tennessee, in a convenient location for international customers located in Europe. This expanded offering of Vision Jet flight training is an important milestone of the overall Vision Jet programme and signifies a critical step in further expansion as Vision Jet type ratings now surpass 400 worldwide and continue to grow.
“Aero Poznan has grown into a premier flight training solution, with expert learning specialists, compelling technology and a world-class customer experience,” says Cirrus Aircraft CEO Zean Nielsen. “This additional training programme has been years in the making and is an important step as we continue to elevate convenience and accessibility for our international pilots and owners.”
The new Vision Jet training programme at Aero Poznan includes the ability to earn EASA Vision Jet type ratings, as well as complete recurrent training. Additionally, a introductory course to the Vision Jet is also offered to prepare position holders for the type rating syllabus in advance.
Cirrus Aircraft is also expanding its services for international owners of Cirrus aircraft to enhance the customer experience, including the addition of international finance options through Cirrus Finance and the launch of an EASA-approved Vision Jet training programme in Europe.
Cirrus Finance provides future owners of Cirrus aircraft with an easy, hassle-free third-party lending experience that includes preferred rates, terms and conditions only available through Cirrus Aircraft. And now, through the launch of Cirrus Global Finance, customers outside of North America have access to the options Cirrus Finance offers to make the cost of owning a Cirrus aircraft more attainable than ever.
“The expansion of Cirrus Global Finance offers our international customers unparalleled access to The Cirrus Life,” Nielsen adds. “It brings an additional level of convenience and predictability as future owners seek out alternative ways to travel, with the added assurance of safety and security afforded by personal aviation.”
Cirrus Global Finance is available to international customers in over 170 countries across the world through AirFinance, with support from the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM). This new partnership expands convenient ownership options for customers around the world.
