CJ4 Program Manager, Norm Baker, Provides an Exclusive Factory Tour
At Cessna Aircraft, “safety begins with a durable airframe.” Each airframe is stress-tested five times the aircraft’s standard lifetime; yet, Cessna’s renowned safety and reliability begins on the production line. State-of-the-art technology allows employees to create replicable, seamless assembly for each new aircraft on the line. In the last part of his four-part series, Baker describes the front of the CJ4 production line; at this point, technicians complete final system installations and preparedness before the aircraft moves into functional testing, and ultimately, power on.
