Whether you are looking to purchase your next aircraft and wanting to test fly a Cirrus, or simply needing a getaway, Tidal Aviation provides private pilots access to the newest, most advanced Cirrus aircraft rental fleet in the greater Houston area. The SR20 is an ideal plane for most private pilots. A 4-seat, single engine airplane, the SR20 contains some of the most advanced technology available. For a bigger thrill, more experienced pilots may consider flying an SR22. This model is identical in appearance to the SR20. However, it features a 310hp engine thrusting you along at 185kts.

We only rent Cirrus airplanes due to their long history of proven performance, safety, reliability, and comfort. With the largest fleet of Cirrus Aircraft in Texas, our aircraft are available when you want to fly. We offer our aircraft to qualified renters for flights both domestically and in the Caribbean.
