Happily, X-Plane 11 pilots can do precisely this in a brace of Garmin G1000 erquipped Cirrus aircraft, the excellent default XP11 Cirrus Vision SF50 bizjet, or through a choice of payware Cirrus SR22's.
Even better news is that a brand new shiny Cirrus SR22 has just arrived in the form of the Holdmybeer Cirrus SR22T-G6, and whatsmore, this is 100% freeware!
For those unfamiliar with the type, the SR22 is a high performance single engine fixed gear four or five seat GA tourer...
- Empty weight: 2,269 lb (1,029 kg)
- Gross weight: 3,600 lb (1,633 kg)
- Useful load: 1,331 lb (605 kg)
- Fuel capacity: 92 US gallons (348 litres)
- Engine: Continental IO-550-N Six cylinder 310 hp
- Propellers: 3-bladed
- Cruise speed: 183 kn
- Stall speed: 60 kn flaps down
- Range: 1,049 nmi (with reserves at 65% power)
- Service ceiling: 17,500 ft
- Rate of climb: 1,270 ft/min
I am sure that the specified cruise speed will have caught your eye, because this is a serious and capable go-places IFR tourer, and on that subject, the Holdmybeer SR22T-G6 has a turbo charged engine which makes it an even more potent aircraft in terms of hot'n'high performance.
