  1. First Flight For Cessna Sky Courier
    Yesterday was a monumental day for the team at Textron/Cessna as their Cessna Sky Courier flew for the first time. The moment is even more savoring because of the restrictions and pressure placed on the team as a result of Covid-19. "Today (yesterday) was an exciting day for our employees, our suppliers and our customers. The Cessna SkyCourier performed exactly as we expected, which is a testament to the entire team of men and women who worked together to prepare for this day," said Ron Draper, president and CEO, Textron Aviation.
  2. The Cessna SkyCourier departed from the company’s east campus Beech Field Airport, piloted by Corey Eckhart, senior test pilot, and Aaron Tobias, chief test pilot. During the 2-hour and 15-minute flight, the team tested the aircraft’s performance, stability and control, as well as its propulsion, environmental, flight controls and avionics systems. Everything went according to plan. The Cessna Sky Courier is a utility turboprop that has cabin flexibility to allow it to serve as a passenger/executive role if a client calls for that layout and finishing. Five flight test articles will continue to expand the test campaign.
