Cirrus Orlando will complement the global network of over 700 training and service partners offering flight training by Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilots and Cirrus Training Centers as well as aircraft maintenance provided by Cirrus Authorized Service Centers. 

Cirrus Aircraft is investing $3.4M in the Greater Orlando facilities and creating numerous career opportunities to support local economic development.
