Aircraft models Cirrus SR20 American aircraft was designed as a multipurpose aircraft that can be used both for private purposes (personal use), as well as for commercial purposes. Initially it was assumed that the aircraft will also be suitable for the transport of goods, however, due to the nature of the construction and design, this feature is for this aircraft is not available, which somewhat reduces the possibilities of its use.

The first work on the design of small-aircraft Cirrus SR20 became the lead in the early 90-ies of the last century, and, it was assumed that the aircraft will be available to future customers as kits for subsequent self-assembly - the estimated cost of one set was about 50 thousand dollars, however, because of the need for sufficiently long assembly and various specialized operations, eventually, it was decided to produce a plane of the model in already fully assembled.

On board the aircraft Cirrus SR20 can accommodate up to 5 people, including one pilot and four passengers, which enables the implementation of commercial air transportation. Initially, the aircraft Cirrus SR20 positioned as four-bed aircraft, however, 2012 year, thanks produced changes and improvements on board were able to establish additional passenger seat, which greatly improved the flight performance of the aircraft.

The Cirrus SR20 aircraft has good control and high maneuverability, and in addition, it is also quite reliable in terms of its operational properties. In the event of unforeseen situations, the aircraft is equipped with an emergency parachute, which, when deployed, is capable of landing the aircraft with a minimum probability of damage.

The Cirrus SR20 aircraft (depending on the current modification) is powered by a Continental IO-360-ES piston engine with a 200 hp power. Due to the ease of maintenance and the efficiency of its operation, service work is not costly, the aircraft itself is capable of covering distances of up to 1454 kilometers at a maximum flight speed of up to 300 km / h.

Apart from the main production version of the aircraft, which appeared in the year 1999, American aircraft have carried out well and the release of a number of modifications of this model:

  • Cirrus SR20 G2 - Improved modification. Actual engineering has not changed;
  • Cirrus SR20 G3 - A modified version, equipped with a new power plant, automatic piloting, improved aerodynamic shape of the wing, increasing the maximum weight vzlёtnym etc .;
  • Cirrus SRV - Modification created on the basis version G3, but glad devoid of options (LED-lights, "autopilot", etc.), Which reduced the price of the aircraft to 12% .;
  • Cirrus T-53A - A special modification designed to train military pilots.
