Pilots Are Going Crazy Over The Vision Jet

If you like action scenes, you’ll want to know about the Vision Jet.

Aviation fans may have already heard about the Vision Jet. Pilots and passengers alike are going crazy for it. It’s an example of a sort of breakthrough in private jet technology.

I can’t tell you precisely why you’ll want to know about this plane when reading my Hunt for Jack Reacher thriller book, Jack the Reaper. Except to say, trust me. Your knowledge of the plane will enhance your enjoyment of the novel.

The Vision Jet, also known as the Cirrus Vision SF50, was designed to be privately owned, and it’s actually the first single-engine private jet to be approved by the FAA. It came on the market in 2016. It’s the smallest and least expensive certified jet currently being made for sale, at $1.96 million. In fact, its closest competitor can’t even come close — that one costs about twice as much.

Frequent travelers will enjoy the USB ports at every seat, and the mood lighting is a nice touch for those who like to ride in luxury.

You start to get a glimpse of why pilots and passengers love the Vision Jet.

Fast Facts:

  • The Cirrus Vision Jet holds seven people and all their bags/luggage, with the 7th seat being removable

  • Engineers decided to eliminate one of the doors in order to make the jet lighter

  • The flight displays are touchscreens

  • It carries 2,000 pounds of fuel, which covers about the distance between New York and Dallas.

  • It cruises up to 345 miles per hour, which means it can get from New York to Miami in about 3 hours.

  • Feels roomy, especially if two of the passengers are children

  • Has lots of natural light

“The Cirrus Vision Jet is one of those rare airplanes that doesn’t fit neatly into any established category. Priced at around $2 million, it burns half the fuel of light jets that cost twice as much, and sells for less than even single-engine turboprops that don’t fly as high or as fast.”
-Stephen Pope, FlyingMag.com

So, there’s something else about this plane that makes it unique — it comes with a parachute system in place.

Cirrus Parachute

Do you find that unnerving? It was not an FAA requirement that the parachute be included. But Cirrus says parachutes in other planes have saved more than 100 lives. So hey, why not, right? With revenue over $1B so far, it looks like Cirrus is on the right track.

    Ok! The Vision Jet caught my attention in Jack the Reaper. Now, I’m ready to buy one! Can anyone tell me what my payments will be if I put $100 down? Does I burn regular or premium? That may be a deal breaker.
