NBAA: World's first certificated personal jet is confirmed

Posted 1 November 2016 · Add Comment

The world's first fully certificated personal jet is now reality. Cirrus Aircraft has secured US type certification for its Vision personal jet. Customer deliveries of the $1.96 million aircraft are scheduled to begin in December.



The Minnesota-based airframer is the first to secure validation for a Part 23 single-engine following a 10-year development effort involving more than 1,700 hours of flying on its four test aircraft.
Other programmes – such as the Diamond D-Jet, Eclipse 400, Piper Altaire and Stratos 714 – have been cancelled or are dormant.
Cirrus president for customer experience, Todd Simmons said at NBAA: “This aircraft brings high performance into a price point that is far lower than comparable light twins and single-engined turboprops, and should help to increase participation in business and general aviation.”
Cirrus has secured around 600 orders for the Williams International FJ33-5A-powered Vision.
The Vision is equipped with a Garmin G3000-based Cirrus Perspective Touch flightdeck and an emergency parachute system. It has a maximum take-off weight of 2,730kg (6,000lb), a range of around 1,000nm (1,850km), and a stall speed of 67kt .
