Cirrus upgrades braking system
Cirrus Aircraft in early October announced the availability of its Performance Braking System for operators of Generation 3 and newer aircraft from Cirrus DirectTM. The new Performance Braking system is a high-performance, single-caliper brake system with tubeless tires and re-designed wheel fairings that enables owners to experience a new level of convenience, reliability and braking performance.
All 2014 Cirrus SR22T, SR22 and SR20 model aircraft currently come equipped with the new Performance Braking System. In addition to making this system available for Generation 3 and newer aircraft, Cirrus is continuing to work on a Performance Braking System upgrade for earlier model aircraft in the field.
“Exceeding our owners’ expectations is core to our mission at Cirrus,” said Todd Simmons, Cirrus Aircraft’s Executive Vice President and Chief Customer Officer. “This is true whether we are delivering new aircraft or improving the ownership experience for the nearly 6,000 operators of fielded Cirrus aircraft. The outstanding response to the new Performance Braking System from owners of 2014 Generation 5 aircraft made our decision to develop this system for our existing fleet an easy one.”
