How lucky are the students at Western Michigan University? They’ve just had a delivery of seven brand new Cirrus TRAC20 G7 aircraft – the first of 32 coming to the university’s College of Aviation.

The TRAC20 G7 is the latest generation of the TRAC Series product line which includes the TRAC20, TRAC22 and TRAC22T. The TRAC Series aircraft is an advanced, high-performance aircraft manufactured by Cirrus designed specifically for pilot training.

“Supporting one of the largest collegiate flight programs is exciting, especially during a time when pilots are in high demand,” said Zean Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer of Cirrus.

With latest G7 model, Cirrus adds Cirrus Perspective Touch+ by Garmin® and is the first-ever piston aircraft to incorporate dual Garmin Touch Controllers. Perspective Touch+ offers larger, high-resolution displays with expanded systems integration, enabling a more intuitive flight deck.

Integrated systems add to the aircraft’s robust list of stability features including the Electronic Stability and Protection system and an integrated engine indication and crew alerting/warning systems all features found on today’s advanced airliners.

“In 2005, WMU entered into a partnership with Cirrus that persists to this day,” said Dr Raymond Thompson, Dean of Western Michigan University.

“Since the arrival of the first TRAC20, WMU has fully embraced the sophistication and benefits of the Cirrus aircraft. From a functional standpoint, the benefits students obtain from learning to fly in the Cirrus result in professional pilot candidates who are career ready.”
