Safety is found in the details — by combining a myriad of initiatives to minimize risk, and to manage undesired states when they occur. Each initiative is a protective layer, made up of innovative systems that transition from passive, to redundant and then active. Each model in the Cirrus Aircraft SR product line has been designed with the occupants’ safety in mind, around a purposeful integration of many robust safety systems.
Cirrus Airframe Parachute System
Pioneering the standard in safety and famously known as the “plane with the parachute,” Cirrus Aircraft equips every aircraft with its signature Cirrus Airframe Parachute System® (CAPS®) — perhaps the most significant safety innovation in over a half-century of general aviation. CAPS revolutionized general aviation safety by providing an additional measure of safety to occupants, similar in theory to the role of seatbelts in automobiles. No other certified general aviation aircraft manufacturer in the world provides this safety feature as standard equipment.
Driven by the profound passion to create safer airplanes, safer pilots and safer skies. Not just for Cirrus pilots, but all pilots. Flying safely will always be our most fundamental mission.
Stall/spin barrier system
From the very early stages of Cirrus development, stall and spin prevention has been central to our aircraft design, avionics development and flight training philosophy. Every Cirrus SR-Series aircraft incorporates the NASA-developed wing technology with a “cuffed” discontinuous leading edge designed to minimize the potential for spin entry after an inadvertent stall. The digital, three-axis autopilot enables the Electronic Stability & Protection (ESP) system which passively and unobtrusively corrects unusual flight attitudes even when the autopilot is not engaged.
Providing both aural and visual alerts, the ESP system displays a pre-stall CAS message warning while the yoke automatically pushes forward to correct low airspeed conditions. Automated ESP supports the pilot and works to prevent the aircraft from entering a stalled condition.
Simply put, redundancy is not enough. Cirrus Perspective+ incorporates redundancy, fault tolerance, and robustness to provide the safest, most reliable, all-digital flight deck experience available. Each Cirrus aircraft is equipped with two alternators, two batteries, and multiple electrical buses to isolate essential equipment and insure that power can be supplied to critical components even if multiple power source failures are experienced. Dual Air Data Attitude and Heading Reference Systems (ADAHRS) are also standard equipment, ensuring the autopilot is available even after the unlikely event of an ADAHRS failure, providing the ultimate in flight deck reliability.
Cirrus Approach Training
Every safe and successful takeoff and landing can be traced back to some previous learning interaction. At Cirrus Aircraft, we see each interaction as an opportunity to create the safest pilot possible through high quality and impactful training. In that spirit, Cirrus Approach is an innovative training product designed to standardize and streamline the training experience in every Cirrus aircraft. Cirrus Approach delivers engaging, video-driven online courses and interactive digital manuals that create a rich learning path and allow for convenient distance learning at a student’s own pace.
That which is learned on the ground is then applied in the air through the world-class network of Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilots (CSIP.) Training is robust and convenient - tailored to your lifestyle. We believe that aviation training is never a singular event - it must be recurring and for life. That’s our approach.

Interactive flight manual
It was created as the main reference of an aircraft for procedural control. It contains everything the pilot needs and navigates it with the simple touch of his fingers, pushing and pulling. Information such as flight profile diagrams, maneuvering contours, and checklist descriptions are readily available in the handbook and pilots can create personalized study records or test their knowledge of pre-flight control. The pilot can be sure he has the most up-to-date practices, and iFOM updates automatically, just like apps in the App Store.
Ultra-high speed processors support enhanced safety features like SurfaceWatch™, animated satellite weather and others. Couple this with luxury automotive inspired Cirrus Spectra™ wingtip lighting and it’s easy to see why the G6 is the smartest, safest, most innovative piston aircraft available today.
Progressive alerts. Are you approaching the right runway? Do you know the distance remaining? Is that the correct taxiway? Dynamically enhance your situational awareness both in the air and on the ground as the aircraft enters and moves through the airport environment. Textual advisories are continuously updating the aircraft location and cyan chevrons highlight the correct runway. Most importantly, urgent alerts like “RWY TOO SHORT” or “CHECK RUNWAY” offer an additional cue to improper position.
Traffic advisory system
Eye in the sky. A high performance active traffic system, designed for high performance aircraft, it scans distances of 22 nm and detects up to 45 targets in 10,000-foot vertical separation. The added course trend vectors help identify and track specific aircraft flight trajectories with much greater precision while safety measures such as ATC-like aural alerts (“Traffic, Three o’clock, Same Altitude, Two Miles”) allow the pilot to keep heads-up scanning for traffic in congested areas.
Tactical advantage. Synthetic Vision Technology™ (SVT) seamlessly blends aircraft position with 3D topographic images while the Terrain Awareness and Warning System (eTAWS) provides caution and warning alerts both visually and audibly. In addition to these capabilities, the “forward looking” terrain avoidance equipment warns the pilot of numerous hazards including premature and excessive rates of descent, negative climb rate or altitude loss after takeoff. Highway in the Sky (HITS) offers the pilot the additional peace of mind that the aircraft is on the desired flight path — whether enroute, on approach or on the missed approach.
Smart Loading. The Weight and Balance synoptic page makes every input easy and accurate. Every gallon of fuel and TKS fluid, seat occupied and bag stowed can be accounted for in the center of gravity calculation. Know with confidence that you can complete your flight safely and legally.
Modern design and luxury
One of the basic features of Cirrus Aircraft, currently produced in three basic models, is assurance of safety and comfort that is completely comparable to luxury automobiles. As the only manufacturer we offer a futuristic level of safety, which is impossible to find in any other airplane in light sport and travel aircraft industry. Fully composite wing construction with a kevlar wing spar largely contribute to the exceptional flight characteristics, whose development was given special attention by aircraft designers.
Thanks to the well-made aerodynamic shape in connection with powerful propulsion, Cirrus outperforms other aircraft in its category. However, one of the questions in the development was, how to achieve great flight characteristics at slow speeds. The result of the development is a “cuffed wing design”. It consists of two profiles, the first (closer to the wing root) allows smooth flight at higher speeds, the second profile (farther from the root of the wing) ensures good flight characteristics and maneuverability during slow flight.
Spectra™ Wingtip Lighting
Cirrus Spectra™ wingtip lighting makes an iconic statement while increasing brightness two-fold. Automotive-style wingtip halo lighting automatically operates within 300 feet of the surface, and pulsing „wig-wag“ functionality above 300 feet maximizes visibility to others giving the G6 an unmistakable presence anywhere in the world, day and night.
Smart seat solution
Innovative 60/40 FlexSeating™ gives Cirrus owners a whole new level of utility and versatility. Featuring a wider back seat featuring three over the shoulder seat belts for a fifth passenger and ten more pounds of useful load. Backseat passengers can select from three recline seat positions to maximize travelling comfort. The Cirrus LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system works just like those found in automobiles for safe and convenient use of child seats.
