Kanematsu Corporation ("Kanematsu") has acquired the sales agency right of the Citation series, the internationally best-selling jets of Cessna Aircraft Company ("Cessna"), for public offices in Japan from Cessna, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation headquartered in Wichita, Kansas in the United States.
Kanematsu received an order for three flight inspection aircraft based on the Cessna Citation CJ4 (525C) from the Civil Aviation Bureau of the Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism in December 2013, and plans to deliver them in fiscal 2015. Now Kanematsu has acquired the sales agency rights for all Cessna jets.
The Cessna Citation series have a wide-ranging lineup, from the Mustang, a small six-seat airplane, through the Sovereign+, a medium-sized 12-seat airplane with excellent takeoff and landing performance, to the Longitude currently under development (which plans to acquire an FAA type certificate in 2017). Kanematsu will be able to introduce the models best suited for various projects scheduled in Japan in the future.
Kanematsu will continue to conduct active sales activities for the Cessna Citation series.
