Cirrus Aircraft’s 2022 G6 SR Takes Personal Aviation To New Heights
This new model is the company’s fastest and most fuel efficient aircraft to date.
The new 2022 G6 SR from Cirrus Aircraft is the company’s latest innovation which is set to redefine personal aviation. Built with the latest state-of-the-art technology and design elements, the 2022 G6 SR model is more fuel-efficient and owners can get better insights through syncing with the Cirrus IQ mobile app.
The SR Series is one of Cirrus Aircraft’s most popular models and has led the market as the “best-selling, high-performing, single-engine piston aircraft for 20 years in a row”. Over 8,000 units have been sold.
Continuing this momentum is the 2022 G6 SR model with its sleeker and more aerodynamic design. This is the fastest mode of the SR series all thanks to the redesigned wings, tail surfaces and wheel pants. As a result, the aircraft’s true airspeed is now nine knots faster than the previous models. “The new model’s ice panel transition seams are smoothed and wheel pant tolerances tightened to reduce drag,” the company said in a statement. These refinements contribute to reduced fuel consumption and faster flight segments.
Other than offering shorter flight times, the luggage compartment of the aircraft has also been redesigned. Access to the luggage compartment is now done with a key fob, unlocking the door wirelessly. To open, just push the button on the door and it springs up gently — going past 90 degrees and stays open during loading. The storage size has also been increased.
Paired with the new 2022 G6 SR is the Cirrus IQ software that not only provides information about the flight’s navigation status, owners can get insights into the overall performance of the aircraft. Information such as the aircraft status, inspection intervals and warranty expiration can be accessed through this new application.
Eight colourways are available for customers to choose from and the Cirrus Xi team has worked with Sherwin Williams Aerospace to develop a new paint formulation process to further enhance the colour definition and flexibility.
“The model year 2022 G6 SR is refreshed to seamlessly sync with your life –taking you further, keeping you connected and distinguishing your style in the air and on the ramp. This latest update to the G6 embodies our passion for continued innovation and commitment to design,” said Ivy McIver, Director of the SR Series Product Line. “We are excited to continue introducing more people to personal aviation and empowering their Cirrus Life story.”
“The new G6 SR Series is a testament to our devotion to constantly enhance both comfort and safety features across our product lines,” Zean Nielsen, CEO of Cirrus Aircraft further adds. “In 2022, we are poised to continue as the market leader in personal aviation and streamline the flying experience with the G6 SR Series aircraft.”
