In January 2024 Cirrus Aircraft presented the new G7 version of their SR-series of Airplanes (SR20, SR22 and SR22T). All SRs delivered in 2024 will be G7s.
The most important changes:
- New Avionics Suite (“Perspective Touch”) based on Garmin’s G3000, very similar to Cirrus SF50 Jet (no auto throttle or FADEC though)
- Automatic Fuel Tank Switching (every 5 gallons, manual mode is also possible)
- New design of interior with lower dashboard, new door panels, seats, lighted USB_C porst and … (of course :-)) cup holders
- Push Button Start instead of key
- New Lithium Battery (20 lbs. lighter)
What I miss:
- I can accept that a modern Diesel/Jet-A version could not be introduced at this time. Maybe there are technical problems (see latest engine failure of TCM CD300 in Diamond DA50RG). I still miss a modern engine in a 1.5 million dollar single engine airplane (which will be the price in Europe including VAT).
- But why do we still have to deal with the mixture control? By this time TCM and Cirrus could have developed a FADEC version of the IO/TSIO-550, maybe even with auto throttle.
