[Avionics Today 02-23-2015] Cirrus Aircraft has announced its 2015 Generation 5 SR22T Special Edition: Australis. The aircraft is designed specifically for the climate, conditions and remote area flight operations that pilots in Australia regularly experience.
The Australis includes features such as the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS), air conditioning and specially treated UV windows to reduce solar energy by up to 30 percent, keeping the cabin cooler on the ramp. Standard accessories for the Australian aircraft include a personal locator beacon, claw tie-down system, and a two-year AvPLAN Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) subscription.
The Special Edition Australis will make its debut at this year's Australian International Airshow and Aerospace and Defense Exposition in Geelong, Australia.
