"The one with the Parachute"

From the start of our company, each and every day, the profound passion for everyone at Cirrus is to create safer airplanes, safer pilots and safer skies. Not just for Cirrus pilots but all pilots. Flying safely will always be our most fundamental mission

The parachute system is designed to protect occupants in the event of an emergency by lowering the aircraft to the ground after deployment. CAPS revolutionized general aviation safety by providing an additional measure of safety to occupants, similar in theory to the role of safety belts in automobiles. No other general aviation aircraft manufacturer in the world provides this safety feature as standard certified equipment. 

Safety has been fundamental to innovation at Cirrus Aircraft since the beginning. Now, we’ve added a bold new layer to our suite of safety features – the Safe Return™ emergency autoland system – allowing passengers to land the Vision Jet with the simple touch of a button in an emergency situation.

It was a truly amazing experience for me and my groupmates who came to get their CPL’s at this flying school. The training was professionally organized, and the crew who helped us study worked hard to make it as much effective as possible. Thanks a lot!

It was fun and exciting to learn at your flying school! The instructors know exactly what they do, and I was fully aware of the risks and the trust that the students put in this training. I completed my license and night VFR fast and effectively. Thank you!
