Cirrus Aircraft today announced the launch of the all-new 2020 G6 SR Series, the most technologically advanced models ever of the world’s best-selling SR20, SR22 and SR22T piston aircraft. The highlight of the new model year is the introduction of the Cirrus Aircraft App powered by Cirrus IQ – providing a digital connection to the aircraft from virtually anywhere in the world. Further enhancements include re-imagined interior and exterior aesthetics, along with an optional 4-blade SR22T propeller from Hartzell.
“The SR Series has been the world’s best-selling high performance single-engine piston aircraft for seventeen consecutive years,” said Zean Nielsen, CEO at Cirrus Aircraft. “That success doesn’t stop our team from pursuing relentless innovation. The addition of the Cirrus Aircraft App is a bold new step towards a fully connected aircraft and we’re proud to be leading the way once again.”
Safety. Intelligence. Connectivity.
The 2020 G6 SR Series redefines the aircraft ownership experience with the introduction of the Cirrus Aircraft App for the iPhone, powered by Cirrus IQ. As the next step in ultimate connectivity, Cirrus IQ enables remote communication between aircraft and pilot via the Cirrus Aircraft App, enhancing the ownership experience and maximizing safety and operational efficiency. Owners and operators of SR Series aircraft equipped with Cirrus IQ can now remotely access important pre-flight status information, including fuel and oxygen levels, battery voltage, oil temperature, aircraft location and flight hours at the touch of a button through the Cirrus Aircraft App.
Joining an array of industry-leading safety features, additional upgrades to the Cirrus Perspective+ by Garmin flight deck further augment safety. These upgrades include a new stabilized approach advisory system which provides visual and aural alerts to the pilot of unstable conditions during an approach.
A Bold New Look.
Echoing the bold step forward in connectivity, the 2020 G6 SR Series brings a palette of re-imagined premium colorways to suit the style of every pilot. Starting with the exterior, aggressive accent lines race alongside an epic line-up of colors inspired by supercars, including Aurora Purple, Highlands Green, Bimini Blue and Volt. The interior receives added detail with widened front accessory pockets for the latest mobile devices, along with high-contrast and color-matched stitching on the luxury automobile-inspired seats.
Joining the new aesthetics is an all-new 4-blade clean sheet SR22T propeller from Hartzell. Utilizing the most technologically-advanced carbon fiber construction and finished with a nickel leading edge protectant, this new upgrade option adds an unmistakable ramp presence for the 2020 G6 SR22T.
The G6 SR Series
Cirrus Aircraft’s first high-performance SR Series airplane – the SR20 – was delivered in 1999 and transformed general aviation with intuitive avionics, game-changing performance and revolutionary safety systems, including the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS). Today’s SR Series portfolio includes the SR20, SR22 and the turbocharged SR22T. Today, there are more than 7,500 SR Series aircraft in more than 60 countries around the world, with over 11.6 million flight hours.
Launched in 2017, the sixth generation SR Series – G6 SR Series – quickly reaffirmed Cirrus Aircraft’s position as the industry leader and, once again, raised the benchmark for high performance, single-engine aircraft. The 2017 G6 SR Series launched the high-speed Cirrus Perspective+ flight deck, Cirrus Spectra wingtip lighting, premium cockpit connectivity solutions and more. In the following two years, the G6 SR Series was further enhanced with flight deck upgrades and new features in connectivity, including flight data streaming and the ability to text or call contacts on the ground with FlightStream 510.
Cirrus Aircraft also offers the Arrivée Special Edition SR Series inspired by “The Art of Arriving”. This unique aircraft expands on the luxury automobile inspired details that define a Cirrus aircraft interior with artisan handcrafted finishes and customization typically only available through the company’s unique Xi Design Studio.
