Indicative of just how prevalent terrain-awareness avionics have become in the nearly 10 years since Honeywell (then AlliedSignal) introduced the enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS), lightplane maker Cirrus last month announced that it is including Honeywell’s KGP 560 EGPWS as standard equipment in the SR 20 and SR 22 piston singles. The airplanes’ Avidyne Entegra multifunction displays will show graphical depiction of terrain, and the audio panel will issue audible cautions and alerts. List price for a stand-alone KGP 560 from Honeywell is $10,990.
