Once we leveled off at 16,500 feet, I got to see what the performance differences are in cruise, and as far as I can tell, the SR22T is a little faster than the previous model while burning slightly more fuel, or as fast while burning slightly less. At 16,500 feet and at the same fuel flow as the Tornado Alley airplane, the new airplane was truing 195 knots, which is a little faster than before. When you pull the power back a little, to 14.5 gph, we were still seeing an impressive 185 knots true at that altitude. And at 13 gph, the true airspeed was still 172 knots. The Tornado Alley airplane, for the record, also has excellent performance at economy settings.
