Cirrus Taking Orders For SRS
Cirrus kicked off the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Fla., with an invitation for prospective buyers to put $5,000 deposits on the aircraft, which is polar opposite to Cessna's LSA offering, the SkyCatcher, in most ways. The SRS is a low-wing composite with a Rotax engine (that allows mogas use) and there was plenty of interest in the aircraft, according to Cirrus officials at the show. Cirrus is still working on the "Cirrusized" version of the German-built aircraft it's adapting for its LSA. Prospective buyers of the SRS are being offered an almost risk-free deal to be among the first to buy one.
Placing a $5,000 deposit will secure a future buyer's place in line for the aircraft. Cirrus will give the position holders a full spec sheet at least 120 days before the deposit will be taken out of escrow. Deposits can be refunded at that time for a $250 processing fee.
