Cirrus Aircraft
Cirrus Aircraft began in a Baraboo, Wis. barn in 1984 where Alan and Dale Klapmeier designed and built the first Cirrus. Nineteen years later, the Cirrus SR22 became the best-selling single-engine piston aircraft in the world by pioneering the latest technological advances in manufacturing and safety. Today, Cirrus Aircraft owns the largest market share in the industry producing advanced general aviation aircraft, and the only aircraft certified with a whole airframe parachute as a standard feature, which to date has saved 86 lives.
