At the same M7 event Brent Wouters, Cirrus Aircraft's current CEO, also spoke about the jet project. Interestingly, while acknowledging that Klapmeier had approached the board and Arcapita (Cirrus Aircraft's main shareholder) he went on to say that he saw the SF50 as playing a key role in the future of Cirrus Aircraft. He also went on to say that he saw outside capital coming into Cirrus Aircraft in order for the existing company to complete development and certification as quickly as possible. The next few months promise some interesting times, particularly in the Cirrus Aircraft boardroom, or at family events.
