The new 2022 G6 SR from Cirrus Aircraft is the company’s latest innovation which is set to redefine personal aviation. Built with the latest state-of-the-art technology and design elements, the 2022 G6 SR model is more fuel-efficient and owners can get better insights through syncing with the Cirrus IQ mobile app.
The SR Series is one of Cirrus Aircraft’s most popular models and has led the market as the “best-selling, high-performing, single-engine piston aircraft for 20 years in a row”. Over 8,000 units have been sold.
Continuing this momentum is the 2022 G6 SR model with its sleeker and more aerodynamic design. This is the fastest mode of the SR series all thanks to the redesigned wings, tail surfaces and wheel pants. As a result, the aircraft’s true airspeed is now nine knots faster than the previous models. “The new model’s ice panel transition seams are smoothed and wheel pant tolerances tightened to reduce drag,” the company said in a statement. These refinements contribute to reduced fuel consumption and faster flight segments.

Other than offering shorter flight times, the luggage compartment of the aircraft has also been redesigned. Access to the luggage compartment is now done with a key fob, unlocking the door wirelessly. To open, just push the button on the door and it springs up gently — going past 90 degrees and stays open during loading. The storage size has also been increased.
Paired with the new 2022 G6 SR is the Cirrus IQ software that not only provides information about the flight’s navigation status, owners can get insights into the overall performance of the aircraft. Information such as the aircraft status, inspection intervals and warranty expiration can be accessed through this new application.
