Citation Columbus lands in Kansas

  • 30-Jun-2008 08:52 EDT

Cessna Aircraft Co. announced that it is building the Citation Columbus plant in Kansas, creating 1010 new direct jobs with an annual payroll of $74 million. Cessna is investing $780 million into development of the Citation Columbus. The new plant will be a stand-alone facility that will house engineering offices and final assembly of the $27 million business jet. Research showed that each aviation job created an additional 2.9 jobs, resulting in a total of nearly 4000 new jobs in Kansas as a result of the new plant. The Kansas Senate voted to provide up to $33 million in bonds to secure the plant through a pool of money designed for aviation projects. Cessna publicly stated its preference to locate in Kansas because of Wichita’s skilled workforce, the National Institute for Aviation Research, and the new technical training school at Jabara Airport.
