Cirrus Aircraft has expanded, as Cirrus Orlando, by adding two locations in Florida at the Kissimmee Gateway airport and Orlando Executive airport. It is investing $3.4 million in the greater Orlando facilities.
Cirrus Orlando will provide concierge-level flight training, aircraft maintenance, aircraft management and sales for its SR Series piston aircraft and the Vision Jet. Student pilots will receive personalised flight training from ground school and flight simulation to in-flight training in the latest G6 SR22 aircraft.
It will reinforce the global network of over 700 training and service partners offering flight training by Cirrus standardised instructor pilots and Cirrus training centres as well as aircraft maintenance provided by Cirrus authorised service centres.
“Cirrus Aircraft's new presence in greater Orlando strategically complements our global partner network as the number of personal aviation pilots increase,” says Zean Nielsen, CEO of Cirrus Aircraft. “We are excited to open doors to those who are just beginning their aviation journey and to continue fostering the relationships we have with existing customers.”
The Orlando news comes after a previous announcement that Cirrus had expanded both into Arizona and Texas with the addition of training facilities and innovation centres.
