Cirrus Aircraft deliveries in 2013 drive strongest performance since 2008
Cirrus Aircraft delivered 276 new aircraft in 2013, nearly a 10% increase over 2012, marking its best aircraft shipment performance since 2008. With these results, Cirrus Aircraft’s annual market share has grown to an all-time high of 37%. “The key driver to this past year’s outstanding performance was Cirrus owners’ and pilots’ strong response to Generation 5 – which was introduced in early 2013 with the new capability to carry 200 lbs more than any previous Cirrus airplane,” said Todd Simmons, Executive Vice President Sales, Marketing and Customer Support at Cirrus Aircraft. A highlight for Cirrus Aircraft in 2013 was final delivery in Saudi Arabia of more than 20 new Cirrus aircraft to the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) for its pilot training needs.
