Cessna Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, today announced that its Cessna TTx, the fastest aircraft in its class, has received certification by the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority, paving the way for deliveries in Australia.
“With Australia’s active general aviation population, we see great potential for the high performance TTx,” said Doug May, vice president, Piston Aircraft. “Whether it’s being used for personal travel or as an entry level business tool, the speed and precision of the TTx make it a natural fit for a country as large and economically dynamic as Australia.”
The TTx delivers 235 knots at high speed cruise along with the confident feel of DirectControl technology that hands-on pilots love. With a cockpit designed around the pilot, the TTx integrates technology and ergonomics to create a powerful yet comfortable flight experience. Featuring Garmin G2000 avionics, the all-glass touchscreen cockpit is the most advanced flight deck in its category and gives pilots the intuitive command they desire. Crafted with a lighter, stronger, all-composite body and wing, the aircraft provides unparalleled strength, stability and durability.
