Cirrus Design is on track to sell 630 light aircraft this year, up from 542 originally projected, and had passed its 2003 delivery total of 469 aircraft by the beginning of September. Robinson Helicopters, meanwhile, produced 343 aircraft in the first half, up 54% over the same period last year - delivering nearly 80% of all helicopters produced in North America. Cessna has certificated its Garmin G1000-equipped T206H Turbo Stationair, its third piston-single with the new glass cockpit.
