As Cirrus Aircraft’s prototype Vision jet single resumes flight testing with a new Garmin G1000 avionics suite, some buyers seeking refunds of deposits for the jet have experienced delays in obtaining their refunds. “We are returning deposits,” Cirrus CEO Brent Wouters told AIN, although some deposits have taken longer than the 45 days specified in the Vision purchase agreement. According to Wouters, the number of gross cancellations is 8 percent of Vision orders, and total orders remain above 400 aircraft as new sales have replaced some refund requests. As for program funding, “We have some people pretty interested in helping us finance the jet program if we should decide that we need it,” he said.
