Unexpected maintenance costs can be extremely difficult for
aircraft operators. In response to these unpredictable fees, Cessna
developed a unique set of coverage options, the ProAdvantage
Programs, for Citation owners.
Unlike an extended warranty, that often eliminates such wear
components like brakes or tires, Cessna designed the programs to
reflect the true cost of operation and maintenance.
The goal of the ProAdvantage Programs is to allow the customer
to anticipate future costs, and consolidate those costs into a
simple monthly fee; the monthly fee is based on the monthly
reported hours flown multiplied by an aircraft-specific,
pre-determined hourly rate. Each program has been developed to
cover everything that an owner can expect to address about a given
ProParts, the foundation of the ProAdvantage Program, covers
airframe and avionics parts; owners can choose to upgrade from the
ProParts Program to the ProTech Program if they would like labor
costs included in their coverage. Similarly, for all predictable
OEM parts coverage for engine components, owners can select between
the PowerAdvantage Program and PowerAdvantage Plus Program.
With PowerAdvantage Plus, operators receive additional coverage
on all parts, shop labor, and rental engines. The more selective
ProIgnition Program limits coverage to Engine Ignition path parts
and consumables. Last but not least, owners can choose the APU
coverage program (AuxAdvantage) and the avionics coverage program
(ProNav). Operators can choose to either combine several programs
together or enroll separately based on specific coverage needs.
