JETNET LLC, the world leader in aviation market intelligence, announced that Cessna Aircraft Company has signed on as the launch customer for JETNET iQ, JETNET’s premium advisory service. Cessna, a Textron, Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, is the world’s leading general aviation company and the largest commercial volume manufacturer of business aircraft, with over 6,100 Citation business jets delivered.
As a Platinum-level subscriber to JETNET iQ, Cessna has access to the full range of database details, including quarterly “state of the industry” reports and the ability to insert unique questions into JETNET iQ’s Global Business Aviation Surveys. These surveys, at the heart of JETNET iQ, have attracted more than 1,300 responses from turbine fixed-wing owners and operators in almost 60 countries since January 2011. JETNET iQ surveys, now distributed in 7 languages, monitor business aircraft purchase and selling intentions, purchase criteria and inhibitors to purchase, aircraft utilization patterns and intentions, airframe and engine brand reputations, emerging brands, and desired product improvements.
“We are very pleased to have Cessna as the launch customer for the Platinum-level service of JETNET iQ,” said Vincent Esposito, JETNET President. “Our two organizations have worked together for many years, and we are delighted to be in a position to support Cessna’s needs for the latest market intelligence to navigate in these uncertain times.”
“JETNET has been a reliable partner through the years,” added Mark Paolucci, Cessna Senior Vice President, Sales. “We are constantly looking at ways to better serve our customers and identify and capture new business, and JETNET iQ provides us with fresh insights that are unique, timely, and actionable.”
