News! - Aircraft Announcement - Cirrus SR22 GTXS Turbo from Carenado

The Cirrus SR22 GTXS Turbo HD Series has been announced as the next aircraft for X-Plane from Carenado. This neat small single-engine four seater general aviation aircraft is an excellent choice to get the Carenado treatment.

The GTXS Turbo stands for the Tornado Alley turbonormalizing upgrade kit which is factory installed. It features twin turbonormalizers and twin intercoolers. The conversion also includes built-in oxygen and a Hartzell three-blade lightweight composite propeller. The engine is the Continental TSIO-550K, which produces 315 hp (235 kW) with a 7.5:1 compression ratio and can run on 94 octane fuel. This turbo version has a certified ceiling of 25,000 feet (7,600 m), a maximum cruise speed of 211 knots (391 km/h), and a top speed of 219 knots (406 km/h). All impressive performance for a small aircraft.

There is no detail of features or what you get from Carenado with the X-Plane version, but I am going to do a bit of crystal ball gazing and say the XP SR22 "Could have" not that it "Does Have" the G1000 twin-screen panel. The G1000 system is now available for X-Plane as it debuted in the CT182T Skylane G1000 HD Series back in September 2015. The FSX/P3D version does have the G1000 setup and the images below are of that version in a vision of what the G1000 in the SR22 could look like in the X-Plane version.

Release of the Cirrus SR22 GTXS Turbo HD Series is due soon, no solid date of course, but I would guess around the end of February 2016.
