CIRRUS G2+ VISION JET (2021-PRESENT)
BRIEF HISTORY – G2+ VISION JET
The Cirrus Vision Jet SF50 is a single-engine, Very Light Jet (VLJ) designed and manufactured by Cirrus Aircraft headquartered Duluth, Minnesota. It is the first civilian single engine production aircraft, most commonly referred to as the Vision Jet and was originally named “The-Jet” by Cirrus. They began development in 2003 at an off-site facility also in Duluth, nicknamed “Moose Works,” a satirical take on Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Development Program dubbed the “Skunk Works.”Cirrus began accepting deposits in 2006 and the Vision Jet flew for the first time on July 3rd, 2008. In 2009, development slowed as the funding dried up quickly. Cirrus was acquired in 2011 by CAIGA and received its type certificate by the US Federal Aviation Administration on October 28th, 2016. Deliveries began quickly after on December 19th, 2016 and as of November of 2021, Cirrus had delivered over 250 Vision Jet SF50’s. It is certified for single pilot operation. On January 8th, 2019, Cirrus announced the G2 Vision Jet, with increased range, altitude, and payload, while updating the cabin and flight deck and it was available for immediate delivery. Allowing for a ceiling of 31,000 ft and a range over 1,200 nautical miles, or 150 lbs greater cargo over 800 nautical miles. It features an auto-throttle, a new flight deck, and cabin modifications. The cruise speed was raised from 304 knots to 311 knots. In mid 2021, Cirrus began outfitting the G2’s with Garmin’s Safe Return emergency auto land system. Shortly after on July 20th, 2021 Cirrus announced an enhanced version, the G2+ Vision Jet which boasts a 20% takeoff performance increase and is equipped with GoGo Inflight Wifi. It began deliveries in August of 2021.
CABIN COMFORTS – G2+ VISION JET
Cirrus has also enhanced the Vision Jet’s interior with additional noise-reducing technologies and an Executive Seating arrangement. The aircraft’s standard layout seats five people (including the pilot) and two children in three rows. The Executive Seating configuration eliminates the third row and replaces it with more spacious seats in the second row, as well as a detachable center console with stowaway tables.The fittings and finishes in the G2+’s interior appear superior. Cirrus improved the carpets and added tiny but significant conveniences, such as kangaroo pouches in front of each seat for storing a smartphone and a side pouch for storing an iPad. Additionally, most feature an overhead 22-inch drop-down LED monitor for passenger entertainment. There are the customary USB outlets and upgraded interior illumination, as well as specific rear cabin environmental controls.Gogo InFlight WiFi, available for the first time, provides industry-leading connectivity while in the air via Gogo’s AVANCE L3 technology. Inflight WiFi elevates the cabin experience by connecting the pilot and passengers, increasing productivity and enabling real-time contact with teams and customers on the ground, ensuring business moves at a jet’s pace. The enhanced convenience of USB-C connectors allows for prolonged productivity.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE – G2+ VISION JET
The Williams FJ33-5A engine has been fine-tuned for the G2+ Vision Jet, with a newly optimized thrust profile providing up to 20% enhanced performance during take-off. The optimized performance complements the expanded flight envelope to FL310, which was launched in 2019 with the G2 Vision Jet, providing enhanced performance to extend range, carry more, and provide added reassurance in hot temperatures and high elevations – enabling access to additional airports at popular destinations worldwide.The maximum altitude of the Vision Jet has been increased from 28,000 to 31,000 feet. That’s significant because flying at that altitude cuts fuel consumption and increases the Vision Jet’s range from 1,380 to 1,467 miles. According to Cirrus, the increased fuel economy enables the aircraft to carry an additional 150 pounds of cargo (or another passenger of average size) on a nonstop 900-mile journey.
FIRST JET WITH A PARACHUTE
New to both Cirrus Aircraft’s and the Entry Level Light Jet or Very Light Jet (VLJ) categories, the Cirrus Vision Jet SF50 is equipped with the Cirrus Airframe Parachute Systems (CAPS). Cirrus says the device adds another layer of protection to occupants, similar to how seatbelts work in vehicles. Thanks to some incredible engineering and innovation, this is a standard feature that no other general aviation manufacturer offers. When the red CAPS handle is pushed in flight, a solid-fuel rocket is launched out of the parachute housing. In mere seconds, the parachute will fully expand and begin to maintain a safe rate of descent until the aircraft gently touches down. The purpose-built Cirrus Energy Absorbing Technology (CEAT) seats, customized and reinforced landing gear, as well as a specialized roll cage all contribute to the aircraft’s ability to absorb impact while landing with the parachute deployed.
FLIGHT DECK – G2+ VISION JET
The G2+ Vision Jet is the latest example of the company’s unwavering commitment to innovation, joining a host of industry-leading technologies already included in the best-selling general aviation jet, including Auto-throttle, Safe ReturnTM Emergency Auto-land, and the Perspective Touch+TM by Garmin® flight deck. Including a primary flight display, a secondary flight display, and three touch controls. Perspective Touch+ is equipped with 14-inch widescreen flight displays with increased resolution and processing speeds. The displays, which utilize split-screen technology, allow for the simultaneous display of three distinct vertical panes and the Engine Indication System (EIS) strip. The specialized Multi-function Display enables the pilot to rapidly monitor numerous integrated aircraft system Synoptics.The fully digital, dual-channel Automated Flight Control System (AFCS) is built on smart servo technology and provides precise lateral and vertical navigation guidance during each phase of flight. Amazingly, Perspective Touch+’s increased versatility enables you to monitor multiple system Synoptics simultaneously – checklists, weather radar, moving map, and traffic, to name a few. Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) delivers a “virtual reality” view of land and water features, as well as runway obstructions and other traffic, providing a realistic visual representation of your environment.
