Cessna to Offer SmartStem for Citation X, Sovereign
Atlanta.– Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, will become the first general aviation business jet manufacturer to offer SmartStem, the world’s first Wireless Tire Pressure System (TPS), developed by Crane Aerospace and Electronics for aftermarket installation on the Citation X and Sovereign.
“Cessna remains committed to supporting all Citation aircraft and providing products and services which reduce our customers’ operating costs,” said Bill Collier, director, Sales and Marketing for Citation Parts Distribution. “As the world’s leading supplier of Citation OEM certified parts and the management group providing the industry leading Citation ProAdvantage programs, we remain dedicated to providing the best products, services and the latest technology to improve the Citation owner experience.”
Crane’s SmartStem technology provides fast and dependable wireless tire pressure measurement, reduces maintenance costs, improves safety, extends tire life and is easily installed. This technology is already in service on the Boeing 777 and will be available for the Citation X and Sovereign in the first quarter of 2008. Cessna and Crane will conduct a product demonstration Wednesday (Sept. 26) in room B310 during the 2007 NBAA conference. Crane will also be demonstrating SmartStem at booth #2523.
