Cirrus has a training facility at the Tyson McGhee Airport.

"Built on the industry-leading platform of simplicity and performance that seamlessly connects the aircraft and the pilot for improved workload management and extended training opportunities, the TRAC Series is the ideal choice for world-class training institutions around the globe."

All of their planes come with a parachute system, electronic stability & protection, and a cuffed wing design developed by NASA providing a discontinuous leading edge to minimize the potential for spin entry after an inadvertent stall.
