Cessna takes orders for 30 aircraft at Florida's Sun 'n Fun
Cessna Aircraft revealed today that it secured orders for 30 aircraft at the Sun 'n Fun International Fly-In & Expo that ended on Sunday in Lakeland, Florida.
After Thursday's storm, which caused widespread damage to aircraft and exhibitions, organisers succeeded on getting the event back on track for Friday, and Cessna were delighted to take several orders.
"The opening days of Sun 'n Fun were very positive, and while the storm on Thursday interrupted that mood somewhat, the exhibitors and the crowds bounced back to finish the show strong," said Mark Paolucci, Cessna's senior vice president of Sales and Marketing. "Cessna took 16 orders for the new Corvalis TTX and 13 orders for high-wing single-engine pistons. Also, a Cessna Sales Team Authorized Representative took an order for a Grand Caravan."
Launched on the first day of Sun 'n Fun, the Corvalis TTX features new standard and optional equipment, all-new interior and paint scheme options, and the Intrinzic flight deck powered by the Garmin G2000. The G2000 is the first commercially available touch-screen-controlled glass flight deck ever designed for a piston aircraft offered to the general public.
The TTX debut drew a steady stream of visitors to Cessna's display area, where they could take a look at a mock-up of the newest generation of the world's fastest commercially available fixed-gear single-engine piston aircraft.
