Skyhawk Is Notable Jaybird
Cessna Aircraft Company announced Thursday it has delivered the
7,500th single engine piston aircraft produced at the planemaker's
Independence, KS facility.
The aircraft is one of 11 Skyhawks being taken over the next 14
months by Northwestern Michigan College as it
upgrades its training fleet. The order was placed through
Cessna’s authorized sales representative, Suburban Aviation
in Lambertville, MI.
"This milestone is significant as a tribute to the timelessness
of the Skyhawk’s design, and to the consistent excellence of
assembly that allows us to remain not just competitive, but an
industry leader," said Rod Holter, general manager of
Cessna’s Independence facility. "The 172 remains one of the
world’s most popular training aircraft."
"We really enjoy the fact that we can celebrate this excellent
product and the number of deliveries with Cessna. We are excited to
be Cessna's 7,500th delivery," said Aaron Cook, director of
aviation at Northwestern Michigan College.
