Claiming Columbia

  • 30-Jun-2008 07:47 EDT

Cessna Aircraft has purchased select assets of Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing, a Bend, OR-based producer of high-performance, single-engine aircraft. Cessna’s auction bid of $26.4 million was accepted by court order by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Oregon. The Bend factory will now carry the Cessna name and the Columbia products will be branded the Cessna 350 and Cessna 400. These low-wing composite aircraft will complement Cessna’s existing line of eight-piston models.
