November 3, 2009 - Cirrus Jet

I got invited to a presentation by Cirrus on various initiatives of the company.  This was both a sales event and an information event conducted by representatives of the company, including the CEO.  One of the attractions was a flight by the SF50 Vision Personal Jet.  The jet was on its way to the AOPA Summit in Tampa, and had stopped off at Tampa Executive Airport for this event.  I flew over earlier in the afternoon for some radio maintenance, and was directed to park in a line of other aircraft.  Later, the plane parked next to mine was moved, and the jet was towed out of a hangar and placed right next to my plane.  That was cool, to be parked next to the jet.  Then the jet was fired up and flew, and here is a short video of that flight.
