Cirrus Aircraft has unveiled the TRAC Series, a purpose-built configuration of the SR Series line of aircraft developed specifically for flight training.
The TRAC Series includes tailored features, such as rear seat push-to-talk functionality and a landing gear simulator aimed at increasing training productivity, company officials said.
“Designed to be the ultimate training platform, the technologically-advanced TRAC Series boasts an impressive list of features and capabilities that complement the aircraft`s stable flight characteristics,” company officials said in a prepared release. “The integrated Perspective+ flight deck includes two large flight displays, a Flight Management System (FMS) keypad controller, an Electronic Stability and Protection system, as well as integrated engine indication and crew alerting/warning systems â€” all features found on today`s advanced airliners.”
Cirrus has redesigned the interior to meet the needs of the flight training environment, replacing the luxury materials found in the SR Series with a durable all-weather floor liner and easy to clean wear-resistant seats.
The TRAC SR20 is powered by a Lycoming IO-390, 215-hp powerplant. It also includes the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS).
The TRAC Series is further enhanced by a wide array of interactive, tailored flight training content through Cirrus Approach, including online courses, videos and an interactive Flight Operations Manual (IFOM).
