Phase Two to begin
July 1, 2021
CitationPartners, a firm that transforms older Cessna Citation Excels, announced that the first of its upgraded twinjets—dubbed Citation Excel Eagles—was delivered on June 25 to North Central Aviation of Blaine, Minnesota. The rejuvenated Excel comes with a Garmin G5000 avionics suite, and new interior and paint, among other improvements.
Greg Krantz, director of Operations for North Central Aviation, commented on its new Excel Eagle by saying, “The exceptional quality of the Eagle, combined with its airframe, engine, and APU support programs, have frankly exceeded our expectations. The process from day one was just like acquiring a totally new aircraft.”
AOPA detailed the Excel Eagle program in March.
