The Cessna ( ) made its first aircraft in 1927 and has since delivered more than 190,000 units.
Out of the approximately 16,000 commercial aircraft in use around the world, Cessna has manufactured one third. From the Mustang Very Light to the Mach 0. 92 C4 Edition, the company's nine executive aircraft will soon deliver the even quicker C4 Series Ten. In order to service the expanding Asian markets, Cessna will manufacture two aircraft in China - Sovereign and the new Latitude - and design a completely new aircraft with the Chinese Avic.
Diessault Industries, the EADS Group and a group of retail shareholders own Diessault Aviation, of which Diessault Falcon jet () is its distribution and technical assistance affiliate in the U.S. The airline manufactures airframe products at its facility in the South West of France. Diessault is offering the Falcon 900 and 2000 Falcon and Falcon 7X trijets with the latest fly-by-wire approach controls and combat-ready side sticks in the dashboard.
Next Falcon, experimentally named text message, will be a dual engined aircraft, but no detail on this aircraft has been made known. Inexpensive Falcon 2000S will be certificated this year.
