And it was free! My flight school is looking at replacing the current fleet and Cirrus loaned us a SR20 & SR22 to test out. This particular plane had all the bells & whistles, and they really are cool planes. The sidestick was different from what I was used to, but by the end of the flight it really wasn't bad at all. The PFDs weren't as hard to adapt to as a lot of articles make them out to be, either. However, there is a lot of information that can be presented on those things. And TCAS for small aircraft, definately a good idea, you can find traffic that you missed very quickly with the alerts. Another feature that was nice was the 'power' lever. There is no throttle or prop lever, as they're incorporated into a single lever. The SR22 has lots of power, as you would expect with a small composite plane with a 310 HP engine. We rotated at 73kts, retract the flaps above 80 knts, and climb out 100 kts, and it pretty much happens as fast as you can read that. At 57% power, we were cruising in excess of 150 KIAS. My one complaint was that you sit fairly high in the cabin, which limits your visibility up high when looking outside, and I'm only 5'11". If I had lots of money, I'd be tempted to buy one.
