Cessna renames new Turbo Skylane aircraft
Cessna has announced that it is renaming its newest single engine product: the jet fuel-burning turbo aircraft, announced at the EAA/AirVenture in Oshkosh last week as the Turbo Skylane NXT, will from now on be called the Turbo Skylane JT-A.
Cessna says that customer feedback at Oshkosh confirmed that the name Turbo Skylane JT-A "better captures and reflects the innovative features of the new plane than the NXT designation".
It was also brought to Cessna’s attention shortly after the announcement of the Turbo Skylane NXT that there was a previous use of the NXT name in the aviation industry of which Cessna had not been aware. The company says, "Cessna both respects the trademark rights of others and desires to obtain registered trademark status on its name for this important new product."
Deliveries for the Turbo Skylane JT-A are still expected to commence in the first quarter of 2013.
