The Cirrus SR22, which was launched in 2000, is a more powerful version of the Cirrus SR20 and with a larger wing, a higher fuel aptitude and a larger engine used by private pilots all over the world. This single-engine, four seat aircraft is purchased by many aircraft enthusiasts because of the great architecture that exemplifies its usage for a more comfortable flight flying experience. The SR22 continues to be the world’s best selling general aviation aircraft for many years now.
SR22 Design and Engine
In addition to the pilot, The SR22 can carry up to 4 passengers. The SR-22 has a fixed landing gear that stands out from other aircrafts. It has a tricycle-designed landing gear and introduces pivoting nose steering using differential brakes on the main wheels. Like all Cirrus aircraft, it has the Cirrus Aircraft Parachute System (CAPS); an emergency parachute pack that can lower the whole aircraft in case of an emergency landing.
It also has the Tornado Alley, an upgrade of the turbo-normalizing kit that has twin turbo-normalizers and intercoolers, as well. With this kind of turbo-normalizer, a pilot may choose to fly higher and faster because of its capacity to store oxygen (which actually can be a built in feature of the SR-22). It is also designed with the light-weight Hartzell 3-blade propeller. It is known to be the fastest aircraft of it’s category at 210kts as its top speed.
Best Choice for Aviation Schools
More aviation flight schools are using the Cirrus SR22 for student pilot because of the power and safety. In 2003, engine models for the earlier version of SR22 were not yet equipped with Avidyne Entegra for primary flight display. It is now the standard. In 2008, the designers from Cirrus and Garmin integrated their ideas and came up with a new kind of cockpit called the Garmin Perspective that became an option in the Cirrus aircraft.
