Cessna ValuePlus Citations on Display at NBAA

October 05, 2008
Orlando, FL - October 5, 2008 - Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, is offering customers the opportunity for immediate delivery of one of several ValuePlus Citations on display this week at the National Business Aviation Association Meeting and Convention.

“ValuePlus is an exclusive Cessna program where a previously owned Citation is completely refurbished, inside and out. The program also includes a ValuePlus warranty which you can’t get from an average aircraft broker on the open market,” said John Newton, vice president, Citation Used Aircraft. “This is a great way to get into a business jet immediately and still have the full backing of Cessna’s world-class Customer Service.

Customers who purchase a ValuePlus aircraft will have the advantage of new exterior paint incorporating the latest design work as well as a completely updated interior using the latest materials and modern color schemes,” Newton said. “Each aircraft is evaluated at a Cessna Citation Service Center – inspected from tip to tail to ensure it has the appropriate avionics and equipment installed.” Cessna is displaying several ValuePlus Citation jets this week at the NBAA static park at Orlando Executive Airport – a Citation Ultra, Citation Excel, Citation Sovereign and Citation X.
