Cessna Aircraft Company [ˈsesnə] (founded in 1927 by Clyde Vernon Cessna) is an aircraft manufacturer based in Wichita, Kansas. It builds single- and twin-engine propeller aircraft and small business jets since 1965. Later usually turboprop or jet aircraft. The name refers to one of the most Cessna aircraft series for private and corporate aircraft, as well as combat aircraft were produced (eg. As the Cessna A-37). After General Dynamics bought out Cessna in 1985 production of small aircraft has been discontinued. This was due largely along with the extension of product liability in the US, so that economic marketing of these aircraft types appeared unrealistic. Only after the re-issue in 1992 to the company Textron Inc. this aircraft model series were produced.
