Cessna offers heat-reflecting paint for Turbo Stationair

Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. company, today debuted its new Night Sky edition of the Turbo Stationair at the 2013 Experimental Aircraft Association's annual week-long exhibition – AirVenture. This limited edition of the Cessna Turbo Stationair features a black and red paint scheme which includes a new surface coating capable of reflecting most infrared solar heat. The Night Sky edition Turbo Stationair also includes a specially-painted McCauley propeller to complement the unique paint scheme.

The coating used in the Night Sky edition of the Turbo Stationair is provided by Netherlands-based AkzoNobel N.V., one of the world's largest paint and coatings company. The solar heat reflective coating (SHR) uses an integrated technology which allows for darker paint to be used on non-traditional surfaces of the aircraft, such as the wings.
“The darker paint scheme on the Night Sky edition of the Stationair makes for an impressive looking aircraft when viewed on the ramp, as well as in the sky,” said Jeff Umscheid, Cessna business leader of the Turbo Stationair. “This limited edition of the Turbo Stationair will appeal to the discerning customer, an owner who wants the leading edge in innovation for his or her aircraft. The range and cabin space on the Stationair are already impressive and the stunning Night Sky exterior will be equally impressive for those seeing the plane from the ground.”

Umscheid says that Cessna is always taking input from customers to provide them with innovative, market-leading products. “With this new Night Sky edition we are going the extra mile to provide Cessna owners and operators with a sleek and unique aircraft complete with an eye-catching paint scheme. This is an attention-grabbing product that reflects an owner's personality and preference. Cessna is the leader in providing the best aircraft equipped with leading-edge technology, and the Night Sky edition of the Turbo Stationair is the latest example of our dedication to innovation and our commitment to our customers.”

Only a limited number of Turbo Stationair units will be manufactured with the Night Sky package. For more information on the Turbo Stationair, visit www.Cessna.com.
