FRIEDRICHSHAFEN -- Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. company, showed its largest ever product line-up at the AERO Friedrichshafen exhibit this week.
Cessna, as it did two years ago, has teamed with its authorized sales representatives in Germany including Atlas Air Service, Air Alliance, AIRplus Maintenance, and Roeder Praezision to present its largest aircraft line-up that includes single-engine pistons up to some of the larger Citation business jets. In addition to its German sales and service partners, a number of Cessna sales affiliates from companies around Europe will join Cessna at its display for customer service.
"Germany has always been one of our largest and most important markets outside the United States and this show has become one of Europe's best," said Trevor Esling, Cessna vice president, International Citation Sales.
Cessna will exhibit a full line of single-engine piston aircraft including the Cessna 182 Skylane, the 206 Stationair, and Cessna's highest-performance single, the 400 Corvalis TT, certified last month for sale in Europe. Cessna will also feature its Grand Caravan single-engine turboprop at its indoor exhibit space, along with the Citation Mustang entry-level business jet.
"Coming in on the heels of EASA certification for the 400 Corvalis TT, we are very excited about exhibiting at AERO Friedrichshafen and being able to speak with European prospects who are now able to take immediate delivery of the impressive new Corvalis TT, the fastest fixed-gear single-engine piston airplane produced today," says John Doman, Cessna vice president, Worldwide Propeller Aircraft Sales.
Other Cessna aircraft featured at partner exhibits include the Citation XLS+, Cessna's most popular business jet, along with the Citation CJ3, CJ2, and CJ1 aircraft.
