Cessna says its single-engine turboprop is not ready for prime time and will not be shown at AOPA Summit in Long Beach next week. It had been widely speculated that the company would unveil the project at the show but Bob Stangarone, Cessna´s VP of Corporate Communications, said the company is a long way from that.
"What we´re flying is neither a prototype nor proof of concept aircraft. It´s a technology demonstrator to help us determine how we could best fill the gap between the Corvalis and the Citation Mustang," Stangarone told AVweb. "Any new aircraft introduction would be some time away."
