I spoke with Mark Darling of Cirrus Design. The plane involved in the New York crash is a Cirrus SR 20. It was sold new four months ago, but was resold to Cory Lidle. The Cirrus SR 20 starts at $250,000, and about 300 were sold last year. The 3000th Cirrus 20 is on the production line in Duluth, Minnesota, where production began in 1999. Others who fly the Cirrus SR 20 include Miles O’Brien and Angelina Jolie.
