There’s nothing like new plane smell…

I was fortunate to be invited to fly the brand new 2017 Cirrus SR22 G6 by Gary Black, a Regional Sales Director at Cirrus Aircraft. Brand new SR22s are top notch, technically advanced single engine piston aircraft. They’re fast, comfortable, and have some pretty amazing technical features in and around it’s flight display screens. Check out how much fun this airplane is to fly…

Here’s a list of some new features found on this year’s G6 SR22:

  • Cirrus Spectra Wingtip Lighting
  • Improved Garmin Perspective Displays (10X the processing speed of preceding G1000s)
  • Bluetooth Connectivity (automatically sync ForeFlight on your iPad to the avionics system)
  • Key Fob: Unlocks Doors and Turns On Lights (just like a car!)
  • QWERTY Keyboard FDC (type flight plans like a laptop)

Dan Malott, a friend of mine and professor at UND, is a Cirrus Certified Instructor Pilot. He was along for the ride and flew up front with Gary as a part of the demo flight. Gary explained all the new features of the aircraft to us, which made flying this new airplane a ton of fun!

Stay tuned for more exciting news to come,
