There's much more to Cirrus Design than simply making high-tech airplanes. With their revolutionary ownership programs, Cirrus has made it easier for people to take to the skies in private aircraft — whether they're a pilot or not.

Cirrus Access
If you’re not a licensed pilot, then Cirrus Access is the program for you. It includes a professional pilot (a certified flight instructor) who will be available for all of your flights and training during a one-year period.
Together, you’ll conduct the training flights during regular business and pleasure trips. If you prefer not to become a pilot, yet still appreciate the added dimension of having a personal aircraft, then the pilot will conduct all of the flight duties while you relax and enjoy the safety and flexibility of having a personal pilot.

Cirrus Certified
This program is the aviation equivalent of an automotive manufacturer's certified used car program. Just like a new Cirrus, you’ll have the peace of mind of a warranty, factory direct delivery, and a rigorous inspection to make sure your new/old aircraft is up to spec.

Cirrus logoCirrus Share
This program is sort of like a vacation time share, but without those dreaded sales pitch meetings. Cirrus Share brings together two to four interested parties in order to distribute the cost of ownership. Considering the base price alone of a Cirrus SR22 is $350,000, this can translate into huge savings.

Cirrus Encore
A program that provides special factory incentives for repeat Cirrus customers.

Cirrus Insurance
Insurance is one of the least understood aspects of owning an aircraft. This guide is provided to give owners some of the information they need and to provide answers to some of the questions new Cirrus owners frequently ask.

Cirrus Finance
Just like car finance programs, this program gives buyers a range of financing programs such as fixed-rate, adjustable rate and bridge loans. It applies to both single, corporate and share buyers.

Cirrus Lease
Many people lease a car, so why not lease a plane? Leasing offers a host of benefits and eliminates some of the financial risks of owning your own aircraft.

Cirrus Warranty
Customers can opt for a warranty of up to three years and 2,000 hours of operation. There's no need to say that aircraft maintenance can be costly, so the peace of mind a warranty offers is certainly worth it.
