ABOUT Cirrus Design

Aethlon's Role

Aethlon’s relationship with Cirrus began in 1996, when we raised the first outside round of equity capital for the company. We secured successive rounds of equity capital in subsequent years and initiated a strategic relationship with Arcapita, which purchased a controlling interest in Cirrus for $100 million. With Arcapita’s backing, Cirrus is now the leading innovator in single engine general aviation aircraft.

Aethlon Capital was instrumental in helping Cirrus raise its Preferred A, B, and C round of equity capital at a critical time in the company's life cycle. Then after the large national investment we hired failed to deliver, we went back to Aethlon and they were able to raise $100 million for a controlling interest in our company. Aethlon is an investment bank you can trust.
