Cessna has delivered the first production units of the world’s fastest commercially-produced and certified fixed-gear single engine aircraft – the Cessna TT.

The company said the all-composite TT was designed for advanced pilots with advanced technology and greater comfort in mind. “The leather-wrapped side-stick control and additional horsepower provide advanced TT pilots with speed and performance close to that of a jet.”

Production of the TT was announced in April 2012. The aircraft has a top speed of 235kts, an operating ceiling of 25,000ft and an optional Flight into Known Icing (FIKI) system, enabling pilots to file flight plans allowing for varying weather conditions.
