Aero-TV: Improving the Citation X – Cessnas Elliptical Winglets Update

April 15, 2011


Manager Gary Genge Discusses the Winglets Retrofit Update From its maiden flight in September of 2007, to its first retrofit in August of 2009, Cessna’s Citation X Elliptical Winglets update has made extraordinary progress in the past two years. After receiving their supplemental type certificates from the FAA and EASA for the installation in June, Cessna Aircraft Company announced the first delivery of the Citation X to be fitted with Elliptical Winglets. Though the first installation was carried out at the Wichita Cessna Service Center, plans are currently underway to expand the Elliptical Winglet installation to all nine Cessna Service Centers throughout the US and Europe. A collaborative effort with the Wichita-based Winglet Technology, the patented design optimizes lift distribution along the entirety of the Citation X wingspan. The resulting reduction in induced drag significantly improves the operational performance of the Citation X. The exceptional technology has increased takeoff weight and climb performance in hot or high departure locations; the Citation X can now climb to FL450 at maximum takeoff weight (increased to 1200 pounds), with a maximum cruise speed for altitudes above FL410 increased up to 15 knots. In addition, the Elliptical Winglet installation dramatically increases the aircraft efficiency, providing for a 4-5% reduction in fuel consumption and a maximum range increase of up to 150 nautical miles.

Aero-TV: ANN Flight Test – Flying Cessna’s Skycatcher

May 21, 2010


Finally… ANN is proud to present the first published flight test data on Cessna’s long-awaited LSA… the C-162 Skycatcher. Worth the wait, the Cessna 162 may be one of Cessna’s very best efforts yet… thoroughly maximizing what it is to be an LSA… while being true to the outstanding stability and control profiles that have been a part and parcel of Cessna’s entry-level aircraft products for many decades. Right up front, let us tell you, the Skycatcher does NOT disappoint… it is a thoroughly sweet little airplane with great manners, a pleasant aerodynamic profile, as good a performance envelope as LSA regs allow and on top of all that, is just plain fun to fly. In other words, the Skycatcher is one heck of a nice little airplane and a fitting way for Cessna to put its best foot forward in bringing forth a new generation of entry level airplanes. Of particular note is Garmin’s EXCELLENT G300 glass panel, the easily operated and powerful addition of the TCM O-200D and the WIDE comfy cabin. But More than that… its just a sweetie in the air… simple, reasonably fast, agile and with nary the hint of a bad habit. Yeah, we had a ball with the critter. Cessna’s minions tell ANN that the SkyCatcher is designed from spinner to tail to set the new standard for an entry-level aircraft. Though manufactured as an LSA, the SkyCatcher meets all the required ASTM standards for certification while providing safety, reliability, and utility. The airplane is equipped with the

Cessnas for Sale Are A Stable Investment

March 6, 2010

It comes as no surprise to anybody, but it is a buyers’ market in everything from real estate to stocks to aircraft. With the concerns about fuel prices, many aircraft owners are trading their twin engine planes in for single engine planes. Cessna 172’s, 182’s, 210’s and 206’s are holding their own value better than other aircraft right now. But like everything, there are still good deals out there, especially in Cessnas for sale.

 

Many owners of older model Cessnas are concerned that it will be difficult to sell their plane because there is no glass instrumentation. On the contrary, because those planes are usually less expensive and most pilots learned to fly with analog instruments, there is still a viable market for Cessnas without glass instruments, especially in first-time owners.

 

There is a contradiction, though. Planes built in the late 1990’s to early 2000’s without glass cockpits do not sell as well, because potential buyers expect glass if they are going to pay the higher price of a newer airplane.

 

The aircraft market seems to be in a holding pattern right now, with potential buyers waiting to see how low the market will go to get the best deal. And sellers are trying to tough it out and not loose their investment, either. Most pilots don’t buy an airplane to make money; they have a need or a purpose for it. If that need changes and their current plane doesn’t quite fit the bill, then it may be time to take the loss and move on to what will work for them. Then they will be into the buyers’ market, looking for that good deal, too.

 

Cessnas for sale have maintained the most stability in the turbulent market of today. For business or pleasure, these planes continue to hold their value and have the reputation to back them up.
