Cessna brings latest aircraft to Germany
Cessna is showcasing its latest business aircraft to the European market at the AERO Friedrichshafen in Germany.
Cessna is displaying three new aircraft at this week’s AERO Friedrichshafen show in Germany in anticipation of an increasing demand in Europe.
The aircraft manufacturer will display its Cessna Citation M2 business jet, Grand Caravan EX single-engine turboprop and Cessna TTx aircraft, which are all expected to achieve EASA type certification this year.
Tom Perry, vice president of sales, Europe, said: “Each aircraft brings distinctive capabilities to the European market and we anticipate they will be extremely popular with our customers.
“There is already significant interest in the Citation M2 from our European customers. Customer feedback has indicated a strong demand in Europe for a Citation with the size, speed and range of the Citation M2.”
The first Citation M2 was delivered at the end of 2013. The aircraft is capable of flying 1,300 nautical miles at 460 mph and is able to use airports with runways as short as 3,250 ft.
Speaking about the Grand Caravan EX, which will also appear at the show, Jeff Umscheid, business leader for the Cessna Caravan, said: “The aircraft has shown itself to be the ideal solution for safely getting people or cargo into places other aircraft simply cannot go. We anticipate the Cessna Grand Caravan EX being just as popular with European operators as with the rest of our global customer base.”
