Cirrus Aircraft announced the all new 2017 G6 calling it the smartest, safest and most advanced model ever produced. Cirrus SR22T, SR22 and SR20 piston airplanes are some of the most popular models in general aviation.

“G6 is the result of the most innovative, capable and feature-rich set of upgrades we have ever applied to the entire SR product line,” said Todd Simmons, President, Customer Experience. “The word ‘comprehensive’ best describes the depth and breadth of all the improvements in G6 as the completely redesigned and fully-integrated user interface and lightning-quick speed of the brand new Cirrus Perspective+ flight deck is noticeable from the moment you power up.

Perspective+ instantly adds game-changing capabilities to G6 – from connectivity to safety to navigation – and gives our owners and operators a completely elevated ground, pre-flight, cabin and in-flight experience.” Simmons continued, “G6 is also the brightest Cirrus ever, as the new state-of-the-art Cirrus Spectra wingtips deliver unrivaled visibility and commanding presence both in the air and on the ramp.”

“The reality is the improvements in G6 taken altogether are a window into our design and development values at Cirrus Aircraft. While the new features brought by G6 are both innovative and compelling, they are equally intentional and customer-centric when it comes to real steps forward in capability, performance, style, and safety improvements.

That bright light of innovation with purpose is our constant at Cirrus, and the enhancements we have made with G6 to the SR22T, SR22 and SR20 follow through on our commitment to leadership in Personal Aviation,” Simmons concluded. – Cirrus Aircraft
