Delta Connection Academy Flight School Picks Cirrus

Delta Connection Academy will buy 50 Cirrus SR20 aircraft in a fleet modernization program that it says will better equip its graduates to enter the modern world of airline operations. At a news conference at AOPA Expo on Thursday, Delta Connection CEO Capt. Gary Beck said the company researched the market for three years before settling on Cirrus. The company will do its ab initio training on the Cirrus so that students are exposed to the technology from the start. “The SR20 G2 incorporates the latest advancements in flight technology to provide our students a realistic, airline-style flight training environment,” he said.
The foreign country that’s doing best for Cirrus at the moment is Brazil, but it continues to develop markets in potentially lucrative areas like India and China.
