Cirrus Aircraft on July 20 unveiled what it describes as a re-imagined Vision Jet, the G2+ Vision Jet, featuring optimized engine performance for expanded mission capabilities, Gogo InFlight WiFi for a connected cabin experience, and new colour stylings. The G2+ Vision Jet also includes Autothrottle, Safe Return Emergency Autoland and the Perspective Touch+ by Garmin flight deck.
“The G2+ Vision Jet is the next step in continuing to transform personal aviation,” said Zean Nielsen, CEO at Cirrus Aircraft. “The enhancements to both the take-off performance capabilities in hot and high conditions and the InFlight WiFi connected passenger experience ensure that the Vision Jet continues to exceed the evolving needs of our owners, both present and future.”
With the G2+ Vision Jet, Cirrus explains the Williams FJ33-5A engine has been finely tuned with a newly optimized thrust profile that provides up to 20 per cent increased performance during take-off. This performance joins the expanded flight envelope to FL310, launched with the G2 Vision Jet in 2019, to increase range, carry more and reassurance in hot temperatures and high elevations.
Available for the first time on the G2+ Vision Jet, Gogo InFlight WiFi adds connectivity while in the air using Gogo’s AVANCE L3 system. The addition of USB-C ports keeps devices charged for further productivity. The initial Gogo InFlight WiFi subscription can be included in the JetStream ownership program.
Cirrus explains new colour stylings, including additions like Titan Grey, Volt and Bimini Blue, join updated design lines that accentuate the distinct curve of the Vision Jet’s carbon fibre fuselage.
Launched in 2016, the Vision Jet earned the Robert J. Collier Trophy from the National Aeronautic Association in 2018. In early 2019, Cirrus announced the launch of the G2 Vision Jet.
