Cirrus Marks 5,000th Airplane Delivery
Joe Whisenhunt’s SR22T, Cirrus No. 5,000
September 29, 2011 – Last week at the AOPA Aviation Summit in Hartford, Connecticut, Cirrus Aircraft announced its 5,000th airplane delivery - an SR22T purchased by Joe Whisenhunt of Little Rock, Arkansas. The milestone comes 11 years after the company began manufacturing operations in Duluth, Minnesota, and today Cirrus has delivered to customers in more than 60 nations.
“We are truly excited and humbled to be delivering the 5,000th Cirrus aircraft,” said Dale Klapmeier, CEO. “When we started, we dreamed of building airplanes that made people’s lives easier and better. Five thousand aircraft later, we’re proud of this achievement and we will continue to improve upon that dream.”
Whisenhunt, who attended the special presentation in Hartford with his family, also has reserved an early production position for the Cirrus Vision SF50 personal jet.
