Cessna has joined Diamond Aircraft in making a free-fuel offer to boost sales in a slow piston-engine market.
Now you can get $15,000 worth of free fuel if you purchase a Cessna 182 or Cessna Turbo Skylane by Sept. 30. You have until December 2009 to use up the fuel offer, which is based on an average 11.5 hours flown per month at 12 gallons per hour and priced at $6 a gallon.
Included with the offer is a free upgrade to the standard G1000 to add Garmin’s Synthetic Vision Technology that is in the final stages of certification.

NetJets has added a new safety feature to its long-range fleet: a doctor who is always in.
Shell announced Dec. 3 the development of an unleaded aviation fuel that will be submitted for certification as a "performance drop-in" avgas replacement.
Frustration-free manuals are now available for the Garmin GTN 650 and 750 panel-mount units.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
