Discover the Hub of our Customer Experience – Knoxville, Tennessee
April 1, 2021
Joining our Customer Experience Team has many perks, including working directly with customers from around the world and becoming uniquely familiar with the world’s best-selling SR Series and the Collier Trophy-winning Vision Jet. But, one of the primary perks is the opportunity to live in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Nestled at the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, our Vision Center, near downtown Knoxville, is the hub of all of our customer activities – from sales and marketing to flight training and factory direct service. Customers visit from around the world to take delivery of their new Cirrus aircraft and train at our state-of-the-art flight training building.
We chose Knoxville for its ideal weather and close proximity to major metropolitan areas. In fact, Knoxville’s McGhee Tyson Airport is 3.5 hours or less for a large majority of our customers. Obviously, these are natural benefits for our business, but we certainly enjoy these conveniences as locals, as well.
There is much more to the Knoxville area than just convenience. Set to the stunning backdrop of the Smoky Mountains, it’s an outdoor-lover’s paradise and offers an impressive array of amenities for those who enjoy city life.
If you are thinking of joining our team, we’ve compiled a list of the many reasons we love living and working in Knoxville. And, if you need more information or recommendations from a local, connect with us on LinkedIn and we’d be happy to help!
