New Interior and Paint Schemes Also offered
Cessna has confirmed that its new Corvalis TTX high-performance
single-engine piston features new standard and optional equipment,
all-new interior and paint scheme options, and the Intrinzic flight
deck powered by the Garmin G2000. Intrinzic is a Cessna-designed
cockpit that incorporates the latest developments in human factors
engineering, ergonomics and user experience to create environments
that make flying simpler and more pleasurable.
“We’ve taken an airplane with incredible performance
and made flying it even more natural and instinctive with
Intrinzic,” said Jack J. Pelton, Cessna chairman, president
and CEO. “At the heart of the new Cessna TTX is the first
touch-screen-controlled glass flight deck ever designed for a
piston aircraft. The G2000 represents a new generation in advanced
avionics — simplified, organized, intuitive. This interface
is so advanced, it’s the same as what you’ll find in
the upcoming Cessna Citation Ten business jet.”

14-inch wide aspect ratio, high-resolution LED displays and an
infrared, touch-screen controller. The touch-screen controller

Protection to help a pilot maintain stable flight and help prevent

The Corvalis TTX also features the L-3 Trilogy glass panel
