Cirrus Aircraft has launched the next generation of the Vision Jet, known as the ‘G2’.
When compared to the first model, the newer aircraft aims to enhance performance, comfort and safety. It also has an increase in cruise altitude and speed thanks to the newly-upgraded Perspective Touch+ by Garmin flight deck.
Innovative technologies unique to G2 include a category-first Autothrottle and Flight Stream connectivity. New executive seats, noise reduction and a passenger productivity console are also among the G2 cabin upgrades.
Pat Waddick, president, innovation and operations at Cirrus Aircraft, said, “The Cirrus Aircraft story is one of relentless innovation. Much like the last 20 years of re-imagining the SR Series with constant improvements to performance, safety and comfort, the G2 Vision Jet is the culmination of that same spirit of innovation.
“This aircraft is yet another game-changer in personal aviation and it’s made possible by the world-class team we have at Cirrus Aircraft.”
New Flight Stream capabilities aims to simplify the pilot experience by creating connectivity between a personal mobile device and the flight deck, enabling a wide range of wireless enhancements including flight plan transfers, database updates and text messaging.
