At the Sun ’n’ Fun show in Lakeland, Fla., Cirrus Design cofounder and CEO Alan Klapmeier said that on June 27 the company will unveil its new single-engine jet to deposit holders at the annual Cirrus Owners and Pilots Association meeting. “We’re not that far along,” he said, adding, “It’s not done until it’s done. I don’t want people jumping to conclusions. It’s the lowest, slowest and shortest-range jet you can buy.” More than 140 people have placed deposits on the Cirrus personal jet thus far.
