The 2012 Cirrus SR22 Aircraft is Really Sophisticated

If you’re an aviation aficionado, then you surely know what Flying Magazine is. The fabled magazine has recently named the 2012 Cirrus SR22 Aircraft the most sophisticated single-engine civilian airplane ever built. They’ve written that “Cirrus Aircraft, which began production in Duluth, Minn., in 1999, has gone from an entrepreneurial dream to a global aviation enterprise with aircraft delivered in more than 60 countries.”

The spot on description perfectly matches the performances of this flying unit, which boasts five-person seating, in a 4+1 format. However, if formatted in 5 seats, not all of them can hug adults. Thus, children can be easily taken into flights, secured by LATCH child restraint system, which encompasses secure traps and comfortable seating arrangement, also fit for pets.

Coming as a 2012 innovation, the Perspective Global Connect is actually an aircraft upgrade that provides access to the on-demand Iridium satellite network, dealing with worldwide weather, satellite phone, e-mail and text. This upgrade also features the Cirrus Perspective, signed Garmin cockpit.

Some of the onboard systems that ensure safety and comfort are the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS), Electronic Stability and Protection (ESP), Enhanced Vision System (EVS), air temperature control, new air conditioning system and a whole lot more. The touch-screen makes it easy for pilots to modify, turn off or turn on these programs.

Something that needs to be mentioned is that Cirrus Aircraft is currently owned by China Aviation Industry General Aircraft Co., Ltd. (CAIGA). The previous model of this plane, the Cirrus SR22 family, has been the best selling four-seater airplane in the world for 10 years.

Dale Klapmeier, the current CEO of Cirrus Aircraft, states: “When Cirrus started, we dreamed of building airplanes that make people’s lives easier and better, and we continue to improve upon that dream. This latest validation of our efforts by one of the leading authorities in general aviation is a source of pride that builds even more momentum as we head into what is traditionally a very busy time of the year for flying. And it also inspires us as we accelerate our progress in the Vision Jet.
