“We will deliver an aviation experience that is the pinnacle of innovation, quality and safety.”
Dale Klapmeier, Cirrus Aircraft Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Our Vision for the Future
As we transform our business to deliver an experience never before seen in aviation, we are creating a brand new customer experience center in Knoxville, Tennessee called the Cirrus Aircraft Vision Center campus. The customer experience at the new Cirrus Aircraft Vision Center will encompass all Cirrus airplanes, products and services — including the Vision Jet. As our flagship location for all customer activities the Vision Center campus will be home to world class training, sales, delivery, maintenance, support, personalization, fixed base operations and more.
Innovation – In every aspect of your Cirrus experience…
Envision this –
Upon entering the Vision Center you are greeted by our concierges and whisked away to have a seat in a brand new aircraft of your choice – SR20, SR22, SR22T and yes, a Vision Jet. Then, meet with the Xi design team and use your imagination to create a personalized new or upgraded aircraft that is completely unique to you. Unwind atop the Vision Center in our secluded ‘Flight Deck’ lounge while taking in picturesque views of the Great Smoky Mountains or relax in your Vision inspired hotel suite adjacent to the Vision Center campus. Whether visiting for factory direct training, factory maintenance service, or taking delivery of your new aircraft, your Vision Center experience is personalized from start to finish.
Safety Through Training Solutions
The Vision Center will offer the world’s premier pilot training solutions for both SR-series aircraft and the Vision Jet. Vision Jet training and pilot certification will take place at the Vision Center campus through our Cirrus Approach™ program, anchored by our exclusive full-motion Level D flight simulator. Built by the world’s leading simulator and flight training device provider, CAE Inc., this training device combined with Cirrus Approach will raise the bar for pilot-friendly training experiences. In addition, Vision Center training solutions will be devoted to providing the best mentoring, pre-training, initial training and recurrent training with our Cirrus instructor pilots. With over 20,000 hours of combined Cirrus flying and instruction, our pilots are the most experienced instructors available.
Experience Factory Direct Service
Have your aircraft serviced by the team that built it. The Vision Center campus will be the home of our flagship factory service center, offering maintenance and service solutions for both SR-series aircraft and the Vision Jet. Our highly trained and experienced technicians will be focused on getting you back to your Cirrus Life quickly and safely.
