Cessna establishes citation service centre in Prague


Cessna opens new service centre at Bell facility in Prague

Cessna Aircraft
Company has established a citation business aircraft service facility in Prague at sister company Bell Helicopter’s service facility
at Prague Airport.

Certified by the
European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in February, the facility has already
begun performing scheduled and unscheduled maintenance operations.

“With the
growing fleet of citations in eastern and central Europe,
business already has been brisk,” said Cessna service facilities vice president
Stan Younger. “We are beginning with line maintenance and over time we
will add more capabilities to provide base maintenance.”

Cessna is also
assembling its second mobile service unit (MSU) for deployment in central Europe to
complement the Prague
Citation Service Centre. The first
Citation MSU, owned by Cessna’s Paris Citation Service Centre, was recently
positioned in Lyons, France,
and covers southern France, Switzerland, northern Italy
and northern Spain.

Cessna also
recently began construction of a new service centre in Valencia, Spain, scheduled to begin
operations in 2012.
