The Cirrus Vision Jet is a one-of-a-kind personal jet that doesn’t fit any of the pre-existing jet categories. It was built with the Cirrus pilot in mind, created to burn about half the fuel of a light jet and be cheaper than the single-engine turboprops that can’t fly as high or fast. The Vision Jet is a personal jet created to need no flight crew. It’s so popular that in fact, Cirrus is behind $1.2 billion in sales as operations recently said the company has more than 600 jet customers waiting for their airplanes to be delivered.
The Vision Jet was created to almost mirror the Cirrus piston aircraft, with switches in the same locations. It also includes the signature Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS), which is a first for a turbine-powered aircraft.
While this is one of the smaller personal jets, the Vision Jet has plenty of room for up to 7 people and their baggage. Because Cirrus wants to make the perfect jet for their customers, the seating plan is completely customizable, so you can have more room for passengers or luggage, depending on what works best for you. The large windows let in a lot of natural light, and there is plenty of headroom in the cabin for everyone to relax and enjoy the flight.

The Cirrus Vision Jet is on the smaller side of personal jets, with a length of 30 feet 7 inches and a height of 10 feet 9 inches. The cabin width is just over 5 feet and roughly 4 feet tall.
