    News | 03 Sep 2014 13:41 | Kate Sarsfield

    Cessna has delivered the 10,000th single-engine aircraft from its Independence facility in Kansas. The 172 Skyhawk was handed over to Lynchburg, Virginia-based flight training provider Liberty University School of Aeronautics late last month along with two more of the piston singles. The Independence facility was opened in June 1996 producing only single-engine aircraft. It now houses the Citation Mustang and M2 light business jet production alongside the Cessna's piston products, including the Turbo Skylane JT-A, Stationair and TTx .http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Cessnas-Independence-facility-hands-over-10000th-piston-single-403289/
