Avidyne Corp. has received a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the FAA for the installation of its DFC90 Digital Autopilot in Cirrus SR20 and SR22 aircraft when interfaced with the Evolution Pro Primary Flight Display (EFD1000 Pro PFD) from Aspen Avionics.
Cirrus Aircraft is expanding its Grand Forks, N.D., facility to accommodate a new autoclave oven in preparation for production of the Vision SF50 jet.
Cirrus Aircraft has introduced “Cirrus Approach” — a multi-year training initiative designed to enhance pilot safety and reduce the general aviation accident rate.
After years of stagnation, development of Cirrus Aircraft’s Vision SF50 jet is full steam ahead.
Cirrus Aircraft recently unveiled its latest SR22 and SR22T models — dubbed Generation 5 — with a host of improvements, dominated by a 200-pound increase in the airplanes’ load carrying capability.
Increasing the certified gross weight to 3,600 pounds increases the flexibility of the airplanes, according to Dale Klapmeier, Cirrus co-founder and CEO. “It’s the most asked for improvement from our customers,” he said.
Cirrus Aircraft has introduced its new SR-Series aircraft lineup for 2013, which is dominated by an increase in load carrying capability for the SR22 and SR22T.
EAST AURORA, N.Y. — Astronics Corp. has delivered the 600th Max-Viz enhanced vision system for installation on Cirrus SR22 airplanes.
I’d like to think I pondered the offer of a ride in a new Cirrus to Idaho Falls and back to Seattle for more than a few seconds, but in reality, I don’t think Cirrus Aircraft Sales Rep Ivy McIver actually finished her offer before I replied… “YES!”
Ivy grinned and said, “My Mom is flying in from Florida and will be coming as well, so as long as you don’t mind flying with my Mom, we are good to go.” “Are you kidding? I have a Mom…I love Moms.”
And with that I just weaseled my way out of a 12-plus hour car ride, and into a 2012 Cirrus SR22T, for my trip to the Trade Show Aviation Idaho.
