The new Vision Jet flight deck called Cirrus Perspective Touch by Garmin is impressive.  It’s leading technology that sets the standard for the Personal Jet category. The reality is – most existing turboprops and jets aren’t even close to this level of avionics. The avionics are based on Garmin’s G3000 system, and Cirrus says, Perspective Touch “is more integrated and capable than traditional off-the-shelf products.” It is Cirrus and Garmin at their best in yet another collaborative design project that may just be the class leader for years to come.

Remember, in 2008 it was the same innovative cross-organizational teamwork that first released Cirrus Perspective by Garmin in SR22 airplanes – almost a decade ago.  A continuing great success.

Try to find a 2008 pre-owned Cirrus Perspective SR22 on the market today.  You might see one or none of the 2008 normally aspirated planes and three or four Turbos.  The 2008 Perspective pre-own supply slack is just gone.  It’s the model year aviators seek for the first Perspective flight decks on Cirrus SR22’s. Pilot demand is strong.   Continue reading “Have you seen the Cirrus Vision Jet flight deck?”

Soar we now . . .

Clouds rising. Tribute to Soar we now, Charles Wesley, 1739
Clouds rising. Tribute to “Soar we now . . . . ” Charles Wesley, 1739

It’s Good Friday.  I hope you can take some time off, rest this weekend, and say indeed  “Christ the Lord is Risen Today,”  As Charles Wesley wrote, circa 1739 –

Soar we now where Christ has led;
Following our exalted Head;
Made like him, like him we rise;
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies. Alleluia!

1 Cor. 15:1-8; & 12-28; 1 Tim 1:17

The Cirrus Vision SF50 Jet was seen in Addison Texas

A fellow pilot spotted the Cirrus Vision SF50 Jet on the ramp in Addison Texas.  I’m looking forward to this being a more common site.

On Saturday May 6, 2017 from 5:30pm until 9pm, the new Cirrus SR22-G6 airplanes will be on display in Austin TX at Executive Airport (KEDC). And, rumor has it the Cirrus SF50 Jet will be on site also.  It’s the spring Cirrus Austin Texas Get Together (CATGT). You should sign up now and plan on attending this fun event. There will be food and several speakers. Contact Ed McCombs through COPA for reservations.

Last October more than 90 aviation enthusiasts came together at CATGT.
