CIRRUS has launched a new model of its best-selling SR22, the SR22T. Key feature is a twin-turbocharger version of Continental's TSIO-550-K engine.
Cirrus describes the aircraft in lush terms: "Thinking forward, sometimes years forward, is a hallmark of Cirrus Aircraft. In addition to a quieter operation, lower weight, a smoother ride and many other refinements, the new SR22T offers Cirrus customers a high performance, twin turbo-charged option with the additional benefit of greater future fuel flexibility."
Other improvements include smoother and lighter nose landing gear, and a redesigned cowl with dedicated induction inlets and exit air louvres for improved cooling. The SR22T also features new environmental control system hardware that supports up to 50 degrees of additional cabin heating capability at all altitudes.
Cirrus France Director Regis Masson flew the second production SR22T from the US to Europe just 10 days ago. He said, "I have just crossed the North Atlantic from Duluth to Paris in a new SR22T in 22 hours. It climbs like a rocket to 25,000 feet and a few times I had to reduce power for others to keep up. The airplane runs like a Swiss clock - it delivers on everything it promises and more!"
The SR22T base price is $475,000.
