By Daniel Guevarra

February 6, 2010 - At the Red Bull Air Race events around the world in 2010, guests will have the unique opportunity to experience Cirrus Aircraft, one of the world's best selling four place, single engine piston airplane. Guests attending the races in either the Race Club or the High Flyer’s Lounge will have special access to both the SR22 series of piston aircraft, as well as the upcoming Cirrus Vision 'personal jet.'  

Cirrus Aircraft, a leading personal airplane manufacturer, and Red Bull Air Race announced a global partnership for the 2010 World Championship at an exclusive event in Santa Monica, California.  

In his comments to several hundred at the Santa Monica event, Cirrus Aircraft CEO Brent Wouters noted, "The Red Bull Air Race World Championship represents a passion for precision and performance in aviation".

"These same attributes are shared by Cirrus Aircraft, its employees and thousands of Cirrus owners and pilots around the world. We are proud to join this world-class event in 2010 and bring together air race fans, pilots and a new generation of aviators for a season of the most exciting, skillful and technical aerial competition in all of flying."

Wouters added, "The Red Bull Air Races and its select global venues are a spectacular aviation experience. These locations showcase the unique lifestyle of convenience, comfort and access Cirrus owners enjoy around the world. At Cirrus, we proudly redefine personal transportation as 'Flying 2.0', and because of our shared passion, we are excited to partner in the worldwide aviation phenomenon that is the Red Bull Air Race." 

Red Bull Air Race CEO Bernd Loidl noted the synergy of the new partnership. “We are pleased to welcome Cirrus Aircraft on board as a partner of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. As one of the leading and most innovative aircraft manufacturers in the world, Cirrus is constantly pushing the boundaries in the development and design of premium aircraft. This together with their passion for flying and focus on excellence provides a perfect synergy with the Red Bull Air Race World Championship.” 


Cirrus Aircraft is a sponsor and supporter of safe, responsible flying. Cirrus Aircraft designs, manufactures and sells aircraft with safety in mind. Our aircraft are intended strictly for everyday flying but never for acrobatic flying or maneuvers.  

The Red Bull Air Race World Championship features the world’s best race pilots in a motor sports competition that combines speed, precision and skill. Using the fastest, most agile and lightweight racing planes, pilots navigate a low-level aerial track made up of air-filled pylons, flying at speeds reaching 370 km/h (230 mph) while withstanding forces of up to 12G.

Touching down in eight cities worldwide in 2010, each Red Bull Air Race is unique. From the heart of the city to the open countryside, over land or water, a Red Bull Air Race can take place almost anywhere. Spectacular backdrops and jaw-dropping action guarantee that spectators experience one of the most innovative and exciting new sports around today.
