Plane shipments up for Cirrus; company sees best start to year since 2008
DULUTH — The folks at Cirrus Aircraft have reason to feel good about the latest industry numbers.
After hitting a 11-year low in 2012, plane shipments were up nearly 25 percent in the first six months of 2013 compared to the same period last year. And billings shot up a whopping 60 percent.
That’s the best year’s start for Cirrus since 2008, suggesting the Duluth-based airplane manufacturer is leaving the grip of the recession behind it.
