Cessna Receives Order for one SkyCatcher and 12 Skyhawks to Scandinavian Aviation Academy
Oshkosh, Wis.– Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, announced today at the EAA AirVenture 2007 that Scandinavian Aviation Academy, based in Västerås, Sweden has ordered one Cessna SkyCatcher – Cessna’s recently announced Light Sport Aircraft – and 12 Skyhawks.
“We’re excited to be one of the first European flight schools to sign up for Cessna’s new SkyCatcher,” said Scandinavian Aviation Academy President Mats Holmgren. “This new aircraft will make flying affordable for many customers who have previously been unable to start or continue to fly. Our new Skyhawks, equipped with the Garmin G1000, will renew and expand our previous fleet of Cessna single engine trainers, giving our students access to the new glass cockpit technology.”
Scandinavian Aviation Academy has offered flight training in Sweden since 1963 and has a total fleet of 25 Cessna trainers there. The company operates one Cessna Authorized Service Station and two training facilities in Sweden and one training academy in San Diego, Calif.
The purchase agreement was signed through Cessna’s Scandinavian sales representative, Scandinavian Airtech AB which has been a part of Cessna’s dealer network since 1973.
“We’re pleased to continue our successful relationship with Scandinavian Aviation Academy and look forward to future growth in the European general aviation industry,” said Scandinavian Airtech President Evert Raadsen.
