We got a call in the office today. Marc Cornelius who looks after Cessna's PR in the UK was on the 'phone explaining how the Corvalis production line, until recently in Bend, Oregon, hadn't been closed down as we'd suggested in news. He went on to say that it was in fact on about eighty lorries heading for Cessna's facility in Independence, Kansas. That's good news, but judging by the recent GAMA report on GA shipments, the Corvalis will need to grow some sales volume to justify the cost of relocating, rebuilding and restarting the line.
I look forward to reading Cessna's press release announcing that the first Corvalis has rolled off the new Independence production line.
