Cessna announced Wednesday it will bring its new Cessna 400 to
headline its participation at ICARUS Aero Expo Athens 2008 in June
during the 24th International Aircraft Owners and Pilots
Association world assembly.
Other Cessna aircraft joining the Cessna 400 at the show will
include a 182 Skylane and 208B Grand Caravan. Cessna will be
supporting its Athens-based Authorized Sales Representative at the
show, Kostas Karayannis, S.A.
"We are very pleased to be exhibiting our exciting new Cessna
400 for the first time in Greece," said Pana Poulios, Cessna's
regional sales manager for Europe. "This first international Athens
expo is a great opportunity for us to show the enhanced capability
and functionality of the advanced avionics in our single-engine

As ANN reported, Cessna
purchased assets of the bankrupt Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing
Co. last December, and added the former Columbia 350 and 400
high-performance, low-wing aircraft to its existing single-engine
piston line-up that also includes the Cessna 172, 182 and 206.
Current models now feature the all-glass Garmin G1000 avionics
suite, including the GFC 700 flight control system.
The 208/208B Caravan series is the world's best selling utility
turboprop aircraft, and now also features Garmin's G1000 avionics
and fully-integrated GFC 700 flight control system in a
three-screen, dual AHRS system. Cessna is increasing Caravan
production this year to meet a sharp rise in customer demand
related to the Caravan's new features, which also includes the TKS
anti-ice system. The company delivered 80 Caravans in 2007 and is
on track delivery well over 100 units in 2008.
Based on unit sales, Cessna Aircraft Company is the world's
largest manufacturer of general aviation airplanes. In 2007, Cessna
delivered 1,272 aircraft, including 387 Citation business jets, and
reported revenues of about $5 billion.
