“For decades, pilots have chosen the Cessna piston lineup for its durability, comfort, and performance. When designing the next interior for the iconic aircraft family, it was important that we include feedback from customers and fans. The result is a more modern, sporty feel that aligns with our family of Cessna Citation jets for the best aviation experience,” Christi Tannahill, Textron Aviation senior vice president of customer experience, said in a press release.

Changes include improved seats with additional padding and support; a new center armrest for the Cessna Skylane, Turbo Skylane, and Turbo Stationair HD; power headset jacks; and USB-A and -C compatible charging ports. Prospective buyers will also see an updated instrument panel, new side panels, redesigned window locks, and air vents. On the outside, Textron will offer several brand-new, modern standard paint schemes to choose from.

“Cessna pistons inspire the journey of flight,” Chris Crow, vice president of Textron Aviation piston sales, said. “If you’re a pilot, odds are that you learned how to fly in a Skyhawk. This investment demonstrates Textron Aviation’s continued enthusiasm for our piston aircraft lineup, and we are thrilled to see these aircraft continue to support pilots worldwide in their training ambitions or mapping their next adventure.”

The company will be debuting its new interior design in a Cessna Skyhawk at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2023 in Wisconsin July 24 through 30.
