Cirrus Releases SR22T: Generation 6

Just as we thought Cirrus couldn’t get any better, they’ve outdone themselves again with the release of the SR22 Turbo – Generation 6 (G6) Aircraft. Per Cirrus, this is, “the smartest, safest, and most advanced models ever of the best-selling SR22T, SR22, and SR20 piston airplanes,” and we see this model changing the recreational aviation industry.
No doubt about it, one of the best parts of owning a Cirrus is being seen. Who doesn’t want others to see them flying around in a sleek, well-crafted airplane? What’s even more impressive about the Cirrus G6 is just how easy it is to be seen with the Spectra Wingtip lights. The design for these lights is based on the look and functionality of high-performance luxury automobiles, and makes seeing your aircraft much easier both on the ground and in the sky. Cirrus has added wingtip halo lights, and more impressively, pulsing “wig-wag” ability to guarantee your presence is always known.

From the outside, it is easy to see the G6’s extended windows, which were created to bring more light into the cabin area. Once inside, you can see floor lights reading “step this way” to help navigate inside the aircraft, as well as overhead lights for Cirrus Releases SR22T: Generation 6 personal needs such as reading. After taking your seat you’ll feel more comfortable than ever in the durable, suede-like, reclining seats – also available in hand-stitched European leather. All seats in the aircraft are flexible allowing for more comfort with passengers, and more cargo room without them. Finally, as with all things Cirrus, the magic really is in the details. The G6 comes equipped with cup holders and storage pockets for your mobile device, as well as headset holders and four USB charging ports to ensure you can use your personal devices when you want, and store them when you don’t.
Perhaps the most exciting feature of the G6 is the brand-new Cirrus Perspective+ by Garmin. This sleek new system enables connectivity between aircraft and pilot, and works 10 times faster than prior Cirrus Perspective avionics. So, what are the features of this new system?
