OSHKOSH, Wis., July 27, 2009 - Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, announced today an order for five Citation Mustangs from Singapore Flying College in Australia to support its advanced training program. The order came through Aeromil Pacific, Cessna's authorized sales representative in Australia.
The five aircraft are part of Aeromil's backlog of Citations and are already included in Cessna's order book. The announcement was made at the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual week-long conference - AirVenture 2009.
Singapore Flying College is a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore Airlines and is responsible for ab initio and advanced pilot training. It has its advanced training facility at the Sunshine Coast Airport in Queensland and currently operates four aircraft, two simulators and a college campus, producing up to 200 graduates each year. Aeromil Pacific provides maintenance and other support elements for the college and will further develop its Citation service capabilities in Queensland later in 2009.
The five new Cessna Citation Mustangs will be delivered over the next three years. The arrival of the first Mustang on the Sunshine Coast Airport is scheduled for early 2010, along with two full flight level D Mustang Simulators later in the year.
