OSHKOSH — Teledyne Continental Motors (TCM) unveiled at AirVenture 2009 a TCM Turbocharged Cirrus SR22 that the company has dubbed the TR22 (Turbo Realized 22).
The TR22 began as a technology demonstration aircraft for TCM’s new Kinetic line of engines aimed at serving the kit and experimental aircraft market segment but has quickly turned to a Supplemental Type Certificate Program, officials noted.
“We quickly realized that we were on to something that was too good not to offer to current Cirrus SR22 owners looking for a performance upgrade,” said Rhett Ross, TCM’s president. “We are working diligently on an STC that will be available by the end of the year.”
