Ascension Air to Offer Cirrus SR22T Aircraft

First Fractional Program to Offer the New 2012 Aircraft with 60/40 FlexSeating™


Atlanta, Georgia (March 12, 2012) – Ascension Air is offering three new and fully-equipped 2012 Cirrus Aircraft SR22Ts to individuals and pilots through its fractional ownership program. These top-of-the-line airplanes include the most sought-after options in today’s general aviation market.


Ownership of these loaded SR22Ts will be surprisingly affordable to pilots looking for a chance to take part in this exciting opportunity. The cost is less than ownership or lease of a high-end automobile. Ascension offers a full-service fractional ownership experience for approximately $10,000 down and a flat fixed cost of approximately $2,000 a month, including hangar, insurance, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and concierge services.


“We are so excited to have partnered with Cirrus Aircraft. This is an opportunity for individuals and corporations to benefit from the most advanced, capable and luxurious aircraft in general aviation: the new 2012 Cirrus SR22T. At Ascension, we make it our business to provide the experience of owning the best new aircraft at the most affordable cost,” said Ascension President and CEO Jamail Larkins.


Ascension’s new 2012 Cirrus aircraft include 60/40 FlexSeating in the backseat. The feature offers a third, over-the-shoulder seat belt allowing for a fifth passenger, if at least two are children; 10 more pounds of useful load; three-position recline; LATCH child seat restraint system; and 60/40 fold down seating.


In addition to the new 2012 features, Ascension’s SR22Ts come equipped with other Cirrus hallmarks such as Cirrus Perspective™ by Garmin®, Cirrus Known Icing (FIKI), Electronic Stability and Protection (ESP), Enhanced Vision System (EVS), air conditioning and the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS™).


“We are very pleased to welcome Ascension Air as a valued fractional ownership partner in the Southeast. Ascension will be exclusively using new 2012 Cirrus aircraft, and in fact, Ascension is the business launch customer for our latest model,” said Cirrus Aircraft Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing Todd Simmons.


“The Ascension fleet comes equipped with the very latest features including seating for five, Flight Into Known Icing certification and, of course, the whole-airframe parachute. Ascension has our strongest support as it brings this new personal and small-business travel alternative to the market place,” he added.
