More than eight decades ago, a small aircraft company started in Wichita, Kan., to do what others said could not be done – to build a monoplane that used a wing without supporting struts or braces. When the Cessna All Purpose took off August 13, 1927, the aviation world was forever changed. In fact, Clyde Cessna’s cantilever design has been the standard ever since. Truth be told, the history of Cessna is a long line of firsts. With such a heritage, it’s no wonder Cessna Aircraft Company is the leading designer and manufacturer of light and midsize business jets, utility turboprops and single engine aircraft, having sold and delivered more aircraft than anyone else in history – 190,000 and counting. Today, with 8,500-plus dedicated employees worldwide and billions of dollars in orders for some of the world’s most advanced aircraft, the future of our company and our customers is even brighter than our lustrous past.
Our philosophy is simple. To produce a safe, high-quality aircraft that is rugged and versatile, coupled with high performance and large useful loads. We dedicate our resources towards maximizing performance, payloads and the quailty of our workmanship.
