Cessna Fleet Reaches Major Milestones
This week Cessna celebrated two major turbine fleet milestones. The Caravan fleet reached 10 million flight hours and its Citation line has reached double that. The company also announced that it has addressed some teething problems and resumed deliveries of the Mustang, its entry into the VLJ market. Garmin has fixed a software glitch that wouldn’t allow users to alter an arrival after one was already selected on the G1000. Cessna says it will still be able to deliver 40 aircraft this year and 100 next year. This year Cessna is marking its 80th anniversary with delivery of the 5,000th Citation and a total backlog of $8.5 billion.
