24/06/2008 CESSNA TAKES $87 MILLION ORDER AT CBAA
Cessna Aircraft Company announced at the 47th annual Canadian Business Aviation Association convention and trade show an order from Execaire for nine Citations. The order consists of four Citation Mustangs, three Citation Sovereigns and two Citations XLS+ aircraft.
Canada-based Execaire, one of North America’s oldest corporate aircraft companies, has managed, maintained and operated aircraft for more than 40 years. Execaire is an authorized Cessna sales representative, parts distributor and Citation Service Center with facilities at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.
Execaire really knows the Canadian market, so this order is a good indication of the strength of Business Aviation in the country, said Todd Duhnke, Cessna director, International Sales. More and more Canadian businesses are seeing Citation business aircraft as a tool to really enhance productivity, allowing employees to travel to where they want to go, not to just where the airlines travel, and to set their flight schedules based on individual business needs.
Deliveries of the aircraft are expected to begin in 2010.
