One of those customers for Cirrus aircraft is OurPlane Inc. , of London, Ontario, a fractional-ownership company that is about to launch its 13th and 14th locations, at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport and at the Flying Cloud Airport near St. Paul, Minn. "We just ordered 10 new Cirrus SR22s in March," OurPlane CEO Graham Casson told AVweb yesterday. "We're seeing tremendous demand for these airplanes. They're easy to fly, and they're very comfortable to fly. The SR22 is a fantastic airplane, and we plan to order more next year." Casson added that his Cirrus aircraft have an "impeccable" safety record, which he attributed to the high safety standards and currency protocols the company requires of share owners. OurPlane, which says it plans to grow its fleet to 100 airplanes within the next few years, offers fractional ownership plus professional management, with shares in a Cirrus SR22 starting at $49,000. The company also offers new Cessna 182s and other aircraft on a fractional basis for both pilots and non-pilots.
