Cirrus Design has delivered the first electric SR20 Version 2.0 to the 907th Flight Squadron Aero Club in Jamison, Pennsylvania. The aircraft, which is available in three configuration packages, replaces the traditional analogue-instrumented SR20. The aircraft features Avidyne FlightMax multifunction displays, Garmin International GNS 430 global positioning system navigation and communication hardware, and the S-Tec System 20 autopilot. It also offers a standard electrically powered directional gyro for heading information. The electrical system is a single-alternator, dual-battery, dual-bus fault-tolerant design, similar to the design on the higher-specification electric SR22, which has been in service for nearly two years.
