Cirrus Aircraft has revealed the 9,000th Limited Edition SR Series aircraft to mark the 9,000th SR Series delivery. The design was inspired by international destinations.
“The SR Series continues to move people, businesses and imaginations as we reach another significant delivery milestone,” said Zean Nielsen, chief executive officer at Cirrus Aircraft. “Our talented Xi Design Studio collected inspiration through the lens of our customers and the worldwide travel and freedom personal aviation offers. The 9,000th SR Series delivery means that 9,000 owners are living the Cirrus Life enabled by the best-selling high-performance piston aircraft in the industry for over two decades. The SR Series is one of the safest aircraft as it includes the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) and a suite of integrated safety features as standard equipment. Through our expanded aircraft ownership ecosystem, we are excited to continue introducing more people to personal aviation.”
From the onset of the Cirrus aircraft ownership experience, customers work alongside the company’s Xi Design Studio – founded in 2009 – to personalise their new aircraft.
The Xi Design Studio showcases its abilities through the new Limited Edition design and colour collection. The thematically named Limited Edition designs – Balos, Lava, Magma and Santorini – were inspired by different international destinations and illustrate the company’s range of premium and bespoke paint schemes. In partnership with Sherwin-Williams, Cirrus Aircraft reformulated signature hues, namely Lava orange and Aegean blue, to create a bold splash of colour.
To commemorate the 9,000th delivery milestone, the number nine was thematically integrated throughout the design. The ‘9’ iconography inspired the aerodynamic lines on the fuselage, along with the many exterior graphic details. The theme continues inside the cabin with several custom touches on the seats and embroidery.
With the release of the 9,000th Limited Edition, Cirrus Aircraft introduced newly designed Cirrus All-Weather Floor Liners, engineered for adventure travel to protect the aircraft floor from mud, sand, water, dirt and more. Each liner features a customised badge commemorating the delivery milestone. Standard SR Series All-Weather Floor Liners for G1-G6 aircraft are available for purchase. Additionally, every 9,000th Limited Edition SR Series aircraft owner will receive the newly announced Bose A30 Aviation Headset and Garmin International’s D2 Aviation watch with custom bands matching the 9,000th livery.
