Cessna Program Eliminates Lead Times for Citation Refurbishments

Aviation - 10th May 2010

WICHITA, Kan., May 10, 2010 – Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, today announced a program to reduce lead times required for interior refurbishments of classic Citations.

Under the new RightNow Interiors program, Cessna’s Citation Service Centers will stock pre-selected, certified interior design materials, eliminating long-lead times – typically eight to 12 weeks – traditionally necessary to order materials for interior refurbishments.

“This program is another way to add flexibility into the maintenance process for our customers, or to fast-track a refurbishment for a new customer eager to get an airplane updated with a new look,” said Stan Younger, Cessna’s vice president of Service Facilities. “A customer will find it easier to schedule interior refurbishments at the last minute to coincide with their personal schedules.”

Younger said customers can choose one of five pre-selected interior schemes, or combine any of the in-stock materials for more than 2,000 custom looks without the wait time normally required to order custom materials.

The program is available at any of the nine Cessna Citation Service Centers for all Citations except the Citation Mustang.
