Back on market. Buyer had life emergency. No fault of plane whatsoever. $10k price cut 6/23/21.
Freshly overhauled engine ($50k) with new updated crankcase. All G1 and later Cirrus with Continental io360 original cases are prone to cracking near the #1 alternator mount until the design was updated. Given that is a well documented issue it was decided to spend the extra $12,000 on the updated case design instead of $5000 for a replacement case. Fresh June Annual with new brakes, fuel pump, polished windows, etc. Properly breaking in engine now. Full cont. USA 430 NavData just updated in June.
Engine can be properly broken in before purchase or do so yourself. The avionics also offers a perfect platform to build off of. It features the "2.1" trim level including a 430 420 and an STEC 30 AP w/ GPSS upgrade. Garmin just released their G500 upgrade package specifically for this airplane and Aspen offers great, cost effective options as well. Panel mount an iPad in place of the MFD and display and log engine monitoring eMax (equipped) through BlueMax.
Plane has been hangared since new and spent the vast majority of its life in the midwest owned by a meticulous commercial pilot. Paint and interior are in good shape. No hail or airframe repairs. Recent rubber gear pucks, control adjustments, and other items over the past year. Text first so that I can add contact then call anytime. 202-660-2771. Thank you!
This is a very sought after example because in 2003 Cirrus abandoned the vacuum system and adopted all electric avionics with dual alternators. At the same time it's still an early lightweight example for a great useful load. But late enough that you still have a couple more years before CAPS servicing.
Fortunately, CAPS is due February 2023. FYI, Cirrus just sent major CAPS delay update, 6 months?

Re: CAPS Repack (Parachute Availability Status)
We are writing to inform you that we are regrettably experiencing a shortage in
parachutes within the network resulting in grounded aircraft, excessive parachute
backorders, and longer lead times for CAPS repacks.
As of writing this memorandum, there are approximately seventy grounded aircraft and
approximately one-hundred and fifty backordered parachute orders. Due to the lack of
available parachutes, we anticipate the number of grounded aircraft to increase over the
next few months.
