  1. Textron Aviation Inks Order For 8 XLS+ Jets At ABACE
    Textron Aviation announced at the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE) that its brand Cessna has inked a deal for eight (8) Cessna Citation XLS+ aircraft. The order has come from Cessna-AVIC Aircraft (Zhuhai) Co., Ltd., a Textron Aviation joint venture in China. The two companies signed on the deal on the 16th of April at the show held at Shanghai Hongqiao Airport. The aircraft will be delivered to the Flight Inspection Center of CAAC (CFIC) starting from this year and through to 2021.
  2. The eight XLS+ aircraft, which will be outfitted with special flight inspection equipment, will facilitate the expansion of the CFIC fleet and its ability to respond to highly challenging missions throughout the region, such as fulfilling inspection and certification missions for the communication, navigation, radar and flight programs of newly built airports, as well as to perform regular flight inspection missions for airports already in operation. This will help ensure a smooth implementation of airport construction plans and safe operation of corresponding air routes during China’s Thirteenth Five-Year Plan period. "This recent order by the CFIC demonstrates the Center’s continued confidence in the products and services provided by Textron Aviation," said Kevin Wu, international vice president of sales, Greater China and Mongolia. "We continue to fully support the operations of the CFIC and its mission to propel the development of the civil aviation safety system in China."
