Cessna Aircraft Company Experience Explosive Growth in European Market

Updated: June 1, 2007

Last week’s European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) was a busy event for Cessna Aircraft Company, a division of Textron Inc.   Various companies committed to 40 purchases including an order for 25 business jets by JetAlliance.  

A delighted Roger Whyte, Cessna senior vice president of Sales and Marketing said, "The tremendous inflow of business we saw at EBACE is indicative of the strength of the market in Europe, particularly in Eastern Europe". 

In just the last few years, Cessna’s international sales have grown from 25 to 30 percent to almost half of all sales.   To prove their dedication to the international market, Cessna has decided to enlarge its exhibit scheduled for the Paris Air Show next month.  Cessna is considered the world’s largest maker of general aviation aircrafts based on their sales data.   Since the company opened its doors in 1927, nearly 190,000 Cessna airplanes have been sold to almost every country worldwide.
