Cirrus Migration Coming Up In July
Lots of type clubs have a fly-in over the summer, but the one for Cirrus owners, the annual Migration to their factory in Duluth, Minn., has achieved a certain standout quality. Maybe it's because last year, the migrants were the first to get a sneak look at Cirrus's new personal jet mockup. Or maybe it's just that the Migration has become more than just a social gathering and qualifies as a bona-fide event, complete with seminars, exhibits, factory tours, parties, a banquet, activities for the whole family (including tennis, golf, and fishing on Lake Superior), and renowned aviation guest speakers. This year, Rod Machado will be there, to give a talk on single-pilot flying strategies. The fly-in will run from July 10 to July 13.
Migration '06 is organized by the Cirrus Owners & Pilots Association, a nonprofit organization not affiliated with Cirrus Design Corp. Anyone is welcome to attend the event; registration is now open online.
