With Cirrus Orlando, student pilots will receive expert, personalized flight training from ground school and flight simulation to in-flight training in the latest G6 SR22 aircraft.

“Cirrus Aircraft’s new presence in Greater Orlando strategically complements our global partner network as the number of personal aviation pilots increase,” said Zean Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer of Cirrus Aircraft. “We are excited to open doors to those who are just beginning their aviation journey and to continue fostering the relationships we have with existing customers by providing a convenient Southeast U.S. location for Cirrus-owned training, maintenance and aircraft management.”
