The Cessna Citation Service Center in Mesa Arizona was so amazing! I met Randy Soutiere, who is the manager and a very neat guy. He took my dad and I on a great tour of this awesome building. He's so cool, he even got to fly in a P-51 Mustang and do 2 rolls!
The building was very eco-friendly and high-tech. The huge hanger was air conditioned, and even better - their air conditioning units were stored on the ceiling to prevent it from heating up (The mechanics must really like going to work)!
Their tool crib had an electrical system that scans the badge that they wear and records who took out the tool. Pretty cool, huh?
Those guys even do paint jobs! They have a quarter of their entire hanger devoted to painting. Not the major stuff, but enough to make it look really good.
Sounds like a lot of stuff to have done so far. In a year? Maybe 2 years? Wrong! They've only been in Mesa for 4 months! They even had to build their hanger and everything! Talk about determination...
I also met 2 other great guys named Terri and Jim. Jim is the service manager and Terri supervises sales and marketing. They were all really cool guys!
Sounds pretty cool, huh? Well, if you have a Cessna, why don't you go down and visit them at:
Cessna Aircraft Company
5533 S. Sossaman Rd. Mesa, AZ 85212
If you don't have a Cessna - get one! They're cool!
