Cirrus Perspective is far more than “just the name Cirrus uses for the G1000.” It’s a fully-integrated cockpit ... and so is our Perspective plug-in.
When our customers requested a Cirrus plug-in for our G1000 Student Simulator software, we did more than just tweak the PFD and MFD. We added all of the standard components that make up a Cirrus Perspective cockpit.
The result is everything you need to simulate flying a Perspective-equipped SR20 or SR22 in the simulated world generated by Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D™ or Microsoft® Flight Simulator X.
Give Your G1000 Simulation a New Perspective
The SR20/SR22 Perspective Plug-in features an integrated Full Panel window that simulates the displays and controls on a single photorealistic panel, including the:
- Primary Flight Display (PFD)
- Multifunction Display (MFD)
- Standby airspeed indicator, attitude indicator, and altimeter
- GCU 478 Flight Management System Keyboard
- GMC 705 AFCS Mode Controller
- GMA350 Audio Panel
- Power Lever
- Mixture Control
- Fuel Pump switch
- Start/Ignition Key switch
- Electrical and lighting controls
- Fuel Selector Valve
- Fuel Quantity gauges
- Flap Control and Position Indicators
- Parking Brake
Unique Perspective features simulated include:
SR20/SR22 PFD and MFD displays. Select the SR20 or SR22 and you’ll see that aircraft’s unique V-speeds, Percent Power displays, Engine Indication System (EIS) displays (dedicated Engine page, fuel calculations, and Leaning Assist mode), and more on the PFD and MFD. Also includes a realistic constant speed governor-regulated propeller simulation.
A GCU 478 Flight Management System keyboard. Just like in the airplane, a dedicated FMS keyboard makes interacting with the avionics intuitive—Whether you use a mouse or a touchscreen.
Level Hold Autopilot Mode. The simulated GMC 705 AFCS Mode Controller features a blue “LVL” button. Press it and the autopilot will bring the aircraft to straight and level flight.
Note: The Perspective Plug-in is intended to help pilots train and stay proficient flying VFR and IFR in Prepar3D or Flight Simulator X while using Perspective enhancements to the G1000. It’s not intended to be a one-to-one simulation of Perspective integrated cockpit avionics, or of the SR20 or SR22 aircraft systems. Optional external sensor displays and some other features are not simulated.
When displayed on a 27” or larger LCD monitor (with the external view generated by the flight simulator displayed on a separate monitor above it), the Full Panel window provides a particularly realistic training experience.
Have a touchscreen monitor? Optional “mouse area” depictions make it easy to manipulate knobs with your fingers instead of the mouse.
The plug-in also includes separate resizable windows for the PFD, MFD, GCU 478 FMS Keyboard/GFC 705 AFCS Mode Controller, and Standby gauges that can all be positioned on separate monitors in any combination.
You've read about the plug-in and seen some screenshots ... now see it in action in this video tour:
The plug-in can also be used with the F1 Tech 1000, our integrated hardware/software solution that features a realistic G1000 PFD, MFD, and audio panel mounted in a vertical desktop stand.
