Cirrus G6 Digital Autopilot

“Supreme accuracy. Building on smart servo technology commonly found in multi-million-dollar business jets, the fully digital, dual channel Automated Flight Control System (AFCS) delivers precise lateral and vertical navigation guidance for each phase of flight. The optimal automatic yaw damper is engaged and disengaged automatically at 200 feet AGL, reducing pilot workload and ensuring a smooth ride.”

“Commanding the architecture of each flight component with an ergonomic and thoughtfully placed mode controller, the autopilot also incorporates the industry-leading Blue Level Button, a Cirrus Aircraft standard since 2008. This active safety feature gives the pilot a single touch autopilot-engage button to roll wings level and pitch to a level attitude if momentarily distracted or disoriented.”

“Flight deck automation you can appreciate and count on.”

Cirrus Perspective+ Keypad Controller

“Designed to align the entire Cirrus family of aircraft and provide similarity between your aircraft and your personal electronic devices, the Cirrus Perspective+ keypad controller features a QWERTY keyboard with larger, more readable keys and additional, dedicated control knobs, including a button to bring you back to your default map. Welcome HOME.”

“Each button and knob is thoughtfully positioned to simplify interaction between the aircraft and the pilot through the intuitive layout and reduction of clutter. Responsive and simple, functions are easy to locate with shallow menus keeping the most frequently used functions at the top-level menu – allowing quick input without getting lost in the software.”

Cirrus Aircraft G6 Flight Displays

“LED-backlit flight displays are powered by optimized, efficient and powerful processors running next generation software. Crisp imagery and quick response rates enhance the flight deck experience, making the text more readable and critical data transfer to the pilot instantaneous. Now your flight deck thinks just as fast as you do.”

“Cirrus Perspective+ incorporates speed and flexibility in the cockpit to view the status of various aircraft systems as well as checklists, animated weather radar, moving map, traffic and more – all at once. Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) provides a three-dimensional virtual image of ground and water features as well as obstacles and traffic.”

Cirrus Aircraft Stall / Spin Barrier System

“From the very early stages of Cirrus development, stall and spin prevention has been central to [their] aircraft design, avionics development and flight training philosophy. Every Cirrus SR series aircraft incorporates the NASA-developed wing technology with a “cuffed” discontinuous leading edge designed to minimize the potential for spin entry after an inadvertent stall.”

“The [G6] digital, three-axis autopilot enables the Electronic Stability & Protection (ESP) system which passively and unobtrusively corrects unusual flight attitudes even when the autopilot is not engaged. Providing both aural and visual alerts, the ESP system displays a pre-stall CAS message warning while the yoke automatically pushes forward to correct low airspeed conditions. Automated ESP supports the pilot and works to prevent the aircraft from entering a stalled condition.”

SR22 G6 Smart Redundancy

“Simply put redundancy is not enough. Cirrus Perspective+incorporates redundancy, fault tolerance and robustness to provide the safest, most reliable, all-digital flight deck experience available. Each Cirrus aircraft is equipped with two alternators, two batteries and multiple electrical buses to isolate essential equipment and insure that power can be supplied to critical components even if multiple power source failures are experienced. Dual Air Data Attitude and Heading Reference Systems (ADAHRS) are also standard equipment, ensuring the autopilot is available even after the unlikely event of an ADAHRS failure, providing the ultimate in flight deck reliability.”

SR22 G6 Intuitive Connectivity

“Designed to fit effortlessly into our increasingly wireless world, your aircraft is now an extension of your connected network. Keyless entry and remote accent and convenience lights establish your aircraft-aviator connection before you even enter the cabin. As you begin your flight experience, your mobile devices automatically connect to the flight deck via bluetooth enabling convenient and time-saving database transfer capabilities.”

“Throughout the flight, you remain connected. Global datalink weather provides updated enroute weather information, real-time traffic and terrain data are continuously displayed and tailored to the pilot’s preferences while satellite voice and text communication remain available via Cirrus Global Connect.”

“Connectivity is integral to your everyday life – pairing you to devices in your car, in your home and at your work. Why should your aircraft be any different?”

SR22-G6 Unrivaled Integration

“Cirrus Perspective+ seamlessly unites all aircraft system health and status information with external data, instantly presenting a user-friendly synopsis for maximum situational awareness. Colorful, robust displays connect the pilot visually and aurally with the information needed to monitor every aspect of the aircraft in real time, quickly identify changing conditions and allow the pilot to make intelligent, informed decisions.”

“Engine data, fluid levels and flow rates, real-time animated weather and traffic and air data information – all at the pilot’s fingertips. Cirrus Perspective+ intelligently integrates aircraft systems, aircraft surroundings, flight deck and pilot. The result: the most responsive, smartest, safest general aviation experience available.”

A message from Dale:

“Aviation was my passion from my earliest memories. I have always loved planes and flying. But even more so I love what flying lets my family and me do together. Whether it’s the time saved on business trips or creating great memories on a quick weekend ski trip to Colorado, these are the things I value the most about this amazing product we build. It’s the access to a very special lifestyle that defines the real benefits of owning a Cirrus.”

“For everyone who dreams of flight, our goal is to see them sitting in the pilot’s seat, making a Cirrus a part of their lives. That’s The Cirrus Life, and we hope to make it part of your life too.”
