Cessna Aircraft Co. recently marked the grand opening of its Mesa Citation Service Center adjacent to the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa, Ariz.
The company built a new 101,000-square-foot facility that includes 62,400 square feet of hangar space along with office and backshop areas. Cessna has developed 12 acres of its tract flanking three 10,000-foot runways and a 124,800-square-foot aircraft ramp, leaving room for expansion as needed, officials said.
Randy Soutiere is general manager of the Mesa Citation Service Center, which employs more than 75 maintenance professionals. Cessna moved its Long Beach, Calif., service center to Mesa to expand space and capability. More than 65% of the workforce at Long Beach accepted Cessna’s offer to relocate to Mesa.
