Cirrus Aircraft threw a grand party Jan. 12 for the grand opening of its Vision Center in Knoxville, Tennessee.
A band, aerial silk act, and a backdrop of airplanes greeted customers, vendors, Cirrus employees, and Knoxville city officials in the new delivery center at McGhee Tyson Airport. The campus so far includes a service center and the delivery center. Offices for sales, marketing, and other customer-facing services are housed in a nearby office building. Groundbreaking for a training center will occur in the next few weeks. Assembly of the piston and jet airframes will continue in Duluth, Minnesota.
