Plane Development Cirrus SR22 was conducted on the basis of another, no less popular in the world model of small-aircraft Cirrus SR20, at the same time, despite the rather similar design, American aircraft could significantly improve the flight performance of the aircraft, increase the maneuverability of the aircraft and raise security made on it fly.

Model Cirrus SR22 began to be made with 2001 year, while, in just 14 years of release, according to mid-2015 years, was built more than 4,5 thousand aircraft (including modifications), which are operated not only by households but also by small air carriers to implement passenger flights on neprotyazhёnnyh routes of local importance, the implementation of tourist flights, air taxi as a means, etc.

Depending on the modification of the aircraft, its occupants can accommodate up to 4 5 people, including also a pilot, which is very similar to the model Cirrus SR20, in the image and that the aircraft was built.

The power plant is represented by a piston six-cylinder aircraft engine Continental IO-550-N, capable of developing a tractive effort of 310 hp, which greatly exceeds the capabilities of the power plant operated in the model Cirrus SR20. Aircraft Cirrus SR22 able to reach a maximum speed of flight in 350 km \ h., With a maximum distance of its flight is 1943 kilometers, which is an excellent indicator for aircraft of this type.

In 2002 year, on the basis of the main production version was created by modification of Cirrus SR22 G2, has received a number of minor improvements in both technical and design.

In 2006 year, based on the Cirrus SR22 model was presented turbo version of Cirrus SR22 Turbo G2, which received the turbocharged power unit (without changing power), as well as a number of improvements in the interior design of interior (trim, replacement of chairs, etc.). Due for their improvements, the cost of the aircraft is largely increased, and therefore, this version is not very popular among the customers.

Modification of Cirrus SR22 G3 2007 was introduced in the year, and in essence, as the improvements obtained only new wings made of carbon fiber, and fuel tanks increased capacity, which allows flights over distances up to 2100 km ..

In 2010 year American designers was a model Cirrus SR22T, which received a new power plant, which in turn provides the maximum flight speed of up to 396 km \ h. In addition, engineers have increased the fuselage of the aircraft, increased its maximum take-off weight and the maximum height of the flight.

Version Cirrus SR22TN, presented in the year 2010, in fact is an analog of the modification Cirrus SR22T, with the exception of a number of technical amendments and upgrades, largely unaffected by the flight performance of the aircraft.

In 2013 year, aircraft manufacturers of the «Cirrus Aircraft» presented a modification of the fourth generation Cirrus SR22 G5, get a new power plant, a number of significant improvements to interior design and additional options ( "autopilot», ADS-B transponder, etc.). Maximum aircraft flight speed was increased to 415 km \ h.
