April 27, 2005

Wichita, KS - April 27, 2005 - Cessna's European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) Maintenance and Operation (M&O) sessions are filling quickly. The M&O sessions offered at EBACE are extremely popular with European Citation operators because of the broad range of material covered, networking opportunities, and convenience of meeting with Cessna experts to ask specific questions about their aircraft.

Cessna expects an especially large audience at its new, one-hour Citation Mustang's feature M&O session. This is the first time Cessna has offered a Mustang features M&O. The Mustang session will cover the structure, systems, engines and avionics. There will be graphics to show the current configuration of the aircraft, plus an opportunity to ask questions about the project.
