Assembly Lines: Cessna Expanding Kansas Facility
Cessna opened the Independence facility in 1996. It currently produces six single-engine piston aircraft there: the 172R Skyhawk, 172S Skyhawk SP, 182T Skylane, Turbo T182T Skylane, 206H Stationair, and T206H Stationair.
In February, the company announced that it had already received more than 200 orders for the Mustang. Cessna expects to increase its Independence workforce by approximately 625 people to more than 1,100 people over the next few years.
