Well, we still don’t know its real name and we’re not sure if it got out of the massive former Northwest Airlines A320 maintenance hangar on its own power but it sure looks like Cirrus’s new family jet is ready to fly. Sporting a red-on-white paint scheme that gives it a sleeker look than the mock-up’s more sedate gold-on-white, the aircraft looks like a display airplane and that’s what those attending Cirrus’s annual Migration and the folks at EAA AirVenture are hoping for as the jet is obviously nearing first flight. The aircraft was formally introduced exactly a year ago at last year’s Cirrus Migration and more than 400 refundable deposits of $100,000 have been received.
