Cirrus Aircraft CZ
The Cirrus SR20 is an American four- or five-seat (“60/40 flexible seating” allows up to three passengers in the rear seats with a split-folding configuration) piston-engine composite monoplane manufactured by Cirrus Aircraft of Duluth, Minnesota, since 1999. The aircraft is the company’s oldest type-certified model, having received FAA certification in 1998. In 2004, the Cirrus SR20 became the first aircraft to receive a new European Aviation Safety Agency certificate for aircraft imported into the European Union.
The Lycoming IO-390-C3B6 four-cylinder 215-horsepower engine is characterized by reliability and high efficiency, making it a practical choice for frequent travel. Thanks to its sophisticated aerodynamic shape combined with its powerplant performance, the Cirrus outperforms other aircraft in its category in flight speed.
The Cirrus SR20 is equipped with a rescue parachute system: the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS). A pioneer of safety standards called the “parachute airplane,” it is the most significant safety innovation in general aviation in more than half a century. No other certified general aviation aircraft manufacturer in the world provides this safety feature as standard equipment.
Each G6 model is equipped with Cirrus Perspective+ by Garmin® avionics, a high-tech avionics system. It’s the most perfectly connected, intelligent and powerful cockpit in its class, featuring features such as a QWERTY keyboard, Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT), flawless digital autopilot, Enhanced Visibility System (EVS), Surfacewatch™ alerting system and Terrain Collision Warning System (eTAWS).
The SR series has been the best-selling general aviation (GA) aircraft in the world every year since 2003, and is the most produced GA aircraft of the 21st century and the single most produced GA aircraft made from composite materials, accounting for more than 30% of the entire piston aircraft market.
