Cirrus Aircraft has introduced the 2015 Generation 5 SR22 Special Edition: Australis.
Designed and configured for the Australian market, the Australis is tailored specifically to the climate, conditions and remote area flight operations that pilots in Australia regularly experience, according to company officials.In addition to the trademark Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS), air conditioning and specially treated UV windows are standard on every Australis. The UV protection has been shown to reduce solar energy by up to 30%, keeping the cabin cooler on the ramp and protecting both the occupants and interior surfaces from UV exposure, Cirrus officials explain.
Standard accessories include a 4-person survival bag, personal locator beacon, claw tie-down system and a two-year AVPLAN subscription.
The Special Edition Australis will make its debut at this year’s Australian International Airshow and Aerospace and Defense Exposition (AVALON), in Geelong, Australia, from Feb. 24 through March 1.
