This starts to get fun now! If you’re picking up a brand new airplane at the factory, your Salesperson will notify you a couple weeks before your airplane is ready to deliver. It’s time to look at your calendar and make your arrangements.
At the factory, you’ll be assigned a Contract Administrator to facilitate the delivery. Expect to spend about 1/2 day with the delivery and a couple of days training with the factory instructors. Be sure to make time to tour the factory and eat lunch in the Cessna Employee’s cafeteria (Yes, that’s an experience in itself!). Plan to leave about mid-day. The four to 5 your trip home should assure a daytime landing and a setting sun for great pictures as you land your new Cessna at your home airport!
