WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Cessna Aircraft's Independence plant has delivered the 10,000th single-engine airplane built at the plant since the first delivery in June 1996.
The company says the milestone plane, a Cessna Skyhawk, was delivered recently to Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, along with two other Cessna Skyhawks.
The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1tOjvKg ) that the airplane has a custom paint job noting the milestone.
Cessna builds most of its single-engine piston products in Independence, including the Skyhawk, Turbo Skylane JT-A, Stationair and TTx.
It also produces the Citation Mustang and Citation M2 jets. The company's Garmin avionics training center is also at the plant.
