I have just read Steve Hitchens write up on the Cirrus Vision Jet, in Australian Flying.


Think I will go out and buy one, they sound so good.


What I really wonder about is the automation. We have just been treated to Boeing having automation go wrong, resulting in two crashes and many lives lost.


The automation on the Cirrus prevents you stalling it and can't be overpowered, plus it can stop you banking more than 45 degrees. What worries me with this type of aircraft is how the pilot can fly it if something goes wrong. The Cirrus is touted at being very easy to fly, which means low time pilots are likely to be in control. I wonder if they really are. Maybe someone here can tell us if there are any published procedures to overcome failure of the automation.
