Cirrus SR22 Goes Garmin!

I was hoping this day would come!

http://www.cirrusdesign.com/perspective/

I'm loving that synthetic vision!

Looks like I'm now going to have to trade in my SR22 GTS Turbo for the SR 22 GTS Turbo Perspective... I almost held off buying the standard GTS Turbo in January because I heard a rumor that Cirrus was going to offer a Garmin avionics suite, but when I asked Cirrus, they said "No way... we're going to stay Avidyne for the forseeable future!" (I guess that's called plausible deniability! LOL!) So I went ahead and got the Avidyne GTS Turbo!

Looks like Cirrus is also getting a "one-up" on the Cessna 400 as well...

Its nice to see Cirrus moving towards a fully integrated cockpit.

How so? the virtual vision system is fully retrofitable on all G1000 units accordign to Garmin, regardless of airframe.

And belated congrats on your pruchase! Sounds like someone will be having lots of fun!

I've said it before, the next decade in General Aviation will surely be an exciting one. Synthetic vision isn't even available on new build commercial jets like the 787 yet!

I just meant that Cirrus has "one-up'd" Cessna with those 12" displays... I should have been clearer on that point!

I'm already having LOTS of fun! Big grin The wife and I are taking a full week to fly a zig-zag across the country from east coast to west coast next month... with daily stops at little "out-of-the-way" little GA airports. And the Cirrus is the perfect way to do it!

It's one of the most comfortable x-country planes I've ever flown!

Wow.

I was hoping Cirrus would offer the L3 SmartDeck system as an option but this upgraded Garmin suite looks really nice.

I like the obstacles display:

According to Cirrus, the L3 system is being geared toward a possible package for the CirrusJet... I was curious about that, as well, when I originally purchased my SR22.

Well I have my Christmas list made up for this year.

Wonder what the final incarnation of Cessna NGP will feature.

Interesting calling it the "Cirrus Perspective" when you can get Garmin's synthetic vision on any G1000 cockpit.

A marketing gimmick for a G1000 specifically tailored to the Cirrus SR series. At least they call it "Cirrus Perspective by Garmin".

That G1000 certainly looks different than the current one in the C172s, what an amazing feature the virtual glide slope and the obstacle animations!

This cirrus baby is going to kick ass... can't imagine what's going to be like the cirrus jet...

Off topic a bit.

What is your planned route and where are you overnighting? That would be a fun trip.

I have a problem with this.. As a CSIP and as the owner of a training center i am not really happy having so many different Cirrus aircraft out there with so many different avionics that provides negative ROI for operators. The people who want to fly these things want the latest greatest and if the software is not up to date, people will turn the airplane down.
Granted a glass cockpit airplane is a major step up compared to non glass Cirrus , the addition of this virtual cockpit will create even more problems for people who are having issues with Acidyne stuff.

Those appear to be the obstacles that are usually depicted on the sectional charts. Looks like towers and/or antennas.

That does help a lot. Sometimes traffic and weather can get really annoying and looking for this stuff can be a pain in the butt
