Cessna Unveils Next-gen Corvalis with Touch-screen Garmin G2000

Cessna Aircraft today unveiled its new Corvalis TTX high-performance, single-engine piston at the Sun ’n Fun International Fly-In & Expo in Lakeland, Fla. The upgraded Corvalis features new standard and optional equipment, all-new interior and paint scheme options and, perhaps most important, the Intrinzic flight deck that uses the new touch-screen Garmin G2000 avionics system as its platform.

I think Cessna is really missing the point here: Why have this super duper Garmin in a non pressurized non FIKI piston that puts the cost right there next to a used meridian?

Sorry Sam, but I must agree with Dennis. I'm sure you will agree you don't start teaching stall maneuvers and emergency landings once you have transitioned into Air Bus.

Just think of all of those private planes in the air as we speak and when NextGen is up and running....without the proper gear that will be required to fly - per the FAA!
Too fancy... I like my 172N carborated. G2000? really? I havent gotten used to the G1000?
a $750k fixed gear training airplane? I'd just as soon fly a g1000 c172 (which I do) and certainly for training need retract time. But maybe your'e right: its for the "big boys" that can afford that type of trainer and the current pilot's pay... By the way, does the Air Bus have touch screen G3-5000"s?

its nice to have that tv in front of u ,but when it fails u are lost .
BTW guys, this is not a "trainer" aircraft. It's Cessna's answer to the Cirrus SR22 that many people fly themselves for business as well as pleasure. There's no questioning the success of the SR22 line, and it's relatively (compared to a 172) sophisticated FD. With the pending sale of Cirrus to the Chinese, this model could do very well for Cessna. As far as the Garmin FD - like it or not, everything will be this way before long.
I never really thought the Corvalis was meant to be a trainer; it just seems to me this was cheap PR stunt/upgrade compared to what really would have made this plane special (pressur/FIKI). without even FIKI Cirrus and Mooney stay way on top in my opinion. But then I'd just as soon go a little further and get the Meridian.
