Phillip, now that you have owned both the DA40 and SR20,which one
would you pick if you could only choose one. Which would be more
practicle for traveling cross country with a spouse and child?

The DA40 is a pilot's airplane. The SR20 is a passenger's airplane. If you want the spouse and child to be comfortable on a leg that is more than two hours, I'd say that the SR20 is a better plane. If you want to have fun flying chandelles and landing in short fields and generally hand-flying without feeling like you're working, the DA40 is better.
