Cessna is renaming its jet-fuel burning turbo aircraft unveiled at AirVenture last month as the Turbo Skylane NXT. It’s now called the Turbo Skylane JT-ATM.
“As confirmed by customer feedback at Oshkosh, the name Turbo Skylane JT-ATM better captures and reflects the innovative features of the new plane than the NXT designation,” Cessna officials said in a prepared statement. “It was also brought to Cessna’s attention shortly after the announcement of the Turbo Skylane NXT that there was a previous use of the NXT name in the aviation industry of which Cessna had not been aware. Cessna both respects the trademark rights of others and desires to obtain registered trademark status on its name for this important new product.”
Deliveries for the Turbo Skylane JT-ATM are still expected to begin in the first quarter of 2013.
