August 12, 2012 - Cessna Aircraft announced it
is renaming its newest single engine product.
The jet-fuel burning turbo aircraft announced at
the EAA/AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin last
week as the Cessna 182 Turbo Skylane NXT will
now be 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.
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. Deliveries for the
Turbo Skylane® JT-ATM are still expected to
commence in the first quarter of 2013.
The Cessna 182 Skylane is a four-seat,
single-engine, light airplane. Introduced in
1956, the 182 has been produced in a number of
variants, including a version with retractable
landing gear, and is the second most popular
Cessna model, after the 172.
