New Standard Equipment Improves Temperature Regulation
Cirrus Design Corp. has
announced that the Cirrus SR22 now has a "COOL" new production line
integrated HVAC (Heating, Ventilation Air Conditioning) system. The
popular SR Series aircraft are now designed to make customers even
more comfortable, with a new and improved air distribution and
temperature regulation throughout the cabin.
Cirrus CEO Alan Klapmeier explained that, "We are excited to
offer air-conditioning as original equipment for the Cirrus SR22.
Now our customers can take advantage of this high-value option at a
lower price than an aftermarket installation. This announcement
demonstrates Cirrus' tradition of commitment to not only advanced
technologies but also, the best value in the industry."
John M. Bingham, Executive Vice President of Sales and
Marketing, at Cirrus stated having the "COOL" new HVAC system for
the SR22 will help broaden the sales appeal of the aircraft.
"North American markets as well as many of our key export
markets will benefit from our new product enhancement for the
Enviro makes the Vapor Cycle Air Conditioning System (VCS), and
President Craig Froelich commented, "Enviro is very pleased to have
been selected by Cirrus to provide the VCS for the SR22 aircraft.
Cirrus is clearly the leader in this market segment due to the
aircraft's performance, comfort, safety and value." Cirrus offers
the air-conditioning system for $19,990.
In addition to the new air-conditioning option for the SR22,
Cirrus also offers a new fan-driven ventilation system for all SR
series aircraft, which circulates ambient or heated air throughout
the cabin. The fan may be operated in ground and flight modes and
is available for $4850.
Cirrus has redesigned the environmental controls for easier
pilot interface. Functioning like automotive climate controls, the
new Cirrus HVAC and fan systems allows pilots or passengers to
select from a variety of comfort zones including face, face and
feet, defrost or a combination of these.
"As demand for Cirrus aircraft grows, so does the level of
customer expectation. We will continue to meet and exceed
these by maintaining our mission to provide our customers the best
value on the market today; in a more safe, comfortable and easier
to fly aircraft," Klapmeier concluded.
