Cessna debuts 350 Corvalis and 400 Corvalis TT

Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, introduced the 350 Corvalis and 400 Corvalis TT during this year's annual sales meeting in Wichita.

The Cessna 350 Corvalis and 400 Corvalis TT (twin turbocharged), formerly the Cessna 350 and Cessna 400 respectively, have been renamed as part of Cessna's acquisition of certain assets from Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing Company in 2007.

"Our customers and sales team asked us to name these products like other popular Cessnas such as the Cardinal and Skyhawk. The name Corvalis, although spelled differently, was inspired from the name of a picturesque Oregon town about 120 miles west of Cessna's Bend, Ore. manufacturing facility.  It is a graceful word befitting the flowing lines of the aircraft and its unique Northwest heritage," said Tom Aniello, vice president of marketing.

"The logo graphic evokes a stylized depiction of the Three Sisters mountains, part of the Cascade mountain range separating the Eastern and Western halves of Oregon, and clearly visible from Cessna's Bend facility," Aniello said.

At a maximum cruise speed of 235 knots, the Cessna 400 Corvalis TT is the fastest fixed-gear single-engine piston aircraft on the market. Equipped with a 310-horsepower Teledyne Continental TCM IO-550N, the Cessna 350 Corvalis has a certified ceiling of 18,000 feet and a maximum cruise speed of 190 knots. The twin turbocharger equipped, intercooled TCM TSIO-550C installed in the Cessna 400 Corvalis TT enables it to cruise as high as 25,000 feet while its pilot and passengers enjoy the convenience of the 400's standard 4-place, built-in oxygen system.

Like all current Cessna single-engine piston products, the Caravan and the Citation Mustang, the 350 Corvalis and 400 Corvalis TT are equipped with the integrated Garmin G1000 avionics system and GFC700 autopilot, and are backed by Cessna's extensive support network.
