Superior Climb Performance Compared With Turbo, With Less Fuel
Forced Aeromotive Technologies of Englewood, CO tells ANN it was
recently issued Supplemental Type Certificate # SA10925SC (US
Patent #6,328,023) for installation of its supercharger system on
Cirrus SR22 aircraft.
According to the company, the supernormalizer system uses a cool
running, low boost, belt driven centrifugal supercharger for extra
take-off, climb and cruise performance.
Figures released by the company show the supercharged SR22 has
outstanding climb and economy -- almost a full minute quicker in
climb from sea level to 12,000' MSL over an SR22 Turbo, with over
two gallons less fuel burn. The supercharged plane narrowly beats
the Turbo in time to climb from SL to 17,000'... but the
supercharged plane burns 3.3 gallons less fuel while doing so.
Forced Aeromotive says its supercharger system is currently in
use on 20 Cessna 182s with thousands of maintenance free hours
logged. The supernormalizer system will be available soon at Cirrus
service centers across the country and is available now online.
