|It was announced by Cessna earlier this month that deliveries of its new light sport Skycatcher aircraft will be delayed by some 6 to 10 months. This situation comes as a retooling of the production line in Shenyang, China to take care of an aggressive spin characteristic of the new aircraft.
|As a result Cessna can not determine how many Skycatchers will be delivered in 2010. Some customers who expected their aircraft this year will be disappointed as deliveries are slipped into 2011. However, the first Skycatcher was delivered to Rose Pelton, wife of the Cessna CEO Jack Pelton, who is learning to fly.
