The economic downturn has hit the Cessna Pilot Centers.
On Friday, Oct. 9, all four Cessna Pilot Center regional managers were informed that their positions were being eliminated for financial reasons. Cessna Pilot Centers are flight training affiliates that use Cessna’s proprietary training curriculum and Cessna aircraft. The centers offer a variety of services ranging from aircraft sales to flight training.
On Tues., Oct. 13, an e-mail was sent to the centers advising them of the change. “Support for the Cessna Pilot Center program, though reduced, remains intact and will be Wichita-based until we get to the other side of this storm,” the e-mail states.
Cessna has 280 Cessna Pilot Centers throughout the world, with most in the United States.
