Cirrus is celebrating the 8000th delivery of their SR Series with a special 8000 Limited Edition SR Series of just 8 models.
Cirrus Aircraft is celebrating the 8000th delivery of their best-selling SR series aircraft and is creating eight “8000 Limited Edition SR Series” models to commemorate the occasion.
Known as the “company that makes the planes with the parachutes,” aka the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System®, Cirrus Aircraft has been building personal aircraft for customers since 1984 and delivered the first SR series aircraft to a customer in 1999.
Now wearing a bright fluoro yellow “Volt 8K” livery designed by Xi Design Studio (Cirrus Aircraft’s in-house personalization team), the 8000th Cirrus aircraft has been delivered to private customer Brad Pierce and was the first of eight 8000 Limited Edition SR Series to be built.
“The SR Series has an incredible history of innovation, evolution and invention,” said Zean Nielsen, CEO at Cirrus Aircraft. “Our team took that as inspiration to create a Limited Edition that breaks out of the boundaries of traditional aircraft design to reflect the energy and excitement of where we are going next.”
Taking inspiration from the bold markings on the runway, the new Cirrus 8000 Limited Edition SR Series also features vertical hash lines across the rear stabilizer and multiple other locations on the aircraft’s exterior and interior.
The bright “Volt” yellow theme also appears in the interior cabin, matching two-tone stitching and embroidery on the seats and upholstery.
The remaining Cirrus 8000 Limited Edition SR Series aircraft will be delivered to their new owners in a series of events over the coming months.
