Cessna Aircraft recently broke ground on a Wichita Citation Columbus design and assembly facility. The standalone, 600,000-sq-ft facility will start producing the new large-cabin twinjet in late 2013. The Citation program will create up to 1,000 new jobs with an estimated annual payroll of $74 million. Deliveries of the Columbus are expected to begin in 2014.
