FAA Grants ODA Status to Cessna

 - December 1, 2008, 5:59 AM

Cessna has received Organizational Delegation Authority (ODA) status from the FAA. The designation means the Wichita-based airframer can act on the FAA’s behalf to examine aircraft designs, production quality and airworthiness and affirm that all the aircraft it builds meet current federal aviation regulations. The new authority covers type and production certification for all Cessna aircraft assembled in Wichita and Independence, including the full line of Citations.
