Cessna Receives Order for Three Citation X+ Jets at NBAA

Cessna Aircraft, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation, received an order for three Citation X+ midsize business jets from Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) during NBAA’s Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition in Orlando, FL.

SEL has owned and operated a fleet of aircraft exclusively comprised of Citation business jets since 1999, purchasing its first Citation X in 2002. The fleet is used to support the travel needs of operations around the globe.

“The X+ provides a total cost of ownership that makes good business sense,” said Dr. Edmund O. Schweitzer III, president and chairman of the board of Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories. “I strive to ensure that our employee owners have access to the resources they need to get the job done. The Citation X+ is a business tool that allows us to serve our customers around the world. Over the course of our nearly 20-year relationship with Textron Aviation, we’ve experienced customer service above and beyond our expectations.”

“SEL is a great example of a company that recognizes the importance of business aviation and the profound impact it can have on reaching a global customer base,” said Scott Ernest, president and CEO of Textron Aviation. “We value the long-standing relationship we’ve shared with Ed and his team over the years and look forward to continuing our support of SEL and their mission.”

SEL invents, designs and builds digital products and systems that protect power grids.
