Cirrus Aircraft Opens Two New Florida Locations for Flight Training and Aircraft Service and Support

Cirrus Aircraft announced the grand opening of Cirrus Orlando, with two new locations in Central Florida at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport (KISM) and Orlando Executive Airport (KORL). The expansion serves a deep-rooted and growing personal aviation market in Florida and the Southeastern U.S. region.

Cirrus Orlando provides concierge-level flight training, aircraft maintenance, aircraft management and sales for its best-selling SR Series piston aircraft and the award-winning Vision Jet®. With Cirrus Orlando, student pilots receive expert, personalized flight training from ground school and flight simulation to in-flight training in the latest G6 SR22 aircraft.

“Cirrus Aircraft’s new presence in Greater Orlando strategically complements our global partner network as the demand for personal aviation increases,” said Zean Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer of Cirrus Aircraft. “We are excited to open doors to those who are just beginning or continuing their aviation journey and to foster our relationships with existing customers by providing a convenient Southeast U.S. location for Cirrus-owned training, maintenance and aircraft management.”

Cirrus Orlando complements the global network of over 700 third-party training and service partners offering flight training by Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilots and Cirrus Training Centers and aircraft maintenance provided by Cirrus Authorized Service Centers.

Cirrus Aircraft will invest approximately $3.4M in the Greater Orlando facilities and is creating numerous career opportunities that support local economic development.

“This Central Florida investment will help our economy become more resilient. In addition, this will provide high-value, high-wage jobs,” said Kissimmee City Mayor Olga González.
