Cessna has built more aircraft that any other company. Clyde V. Cessna, a farmer from Kansas, had a Bleriot monoplane which he repeatedly crashed and modified in 1911 to such an extent that it could be called the first Cessna aircraft. After building two more aircraft, he was invited to head Travel Air in 1925, withdrawing soon afterwards to start the Cessna-Roos Aircraft Company in 1927. After Roos departed the name changed to the Cessna Aircraft Company in December 1927. Cabin monoplanes were produced but the company closed down in 1931 after the Depression. In 1934 Clyde’s nephew reopened a factory at East Pawnee, Wichita as manager of the revitalised Cessna Aircraft. During WW2 many Bobcat/Brasshat/Crane variants were produced, along with troop-carrying gliders and major assemblies for the B-29 and A-26. Production returned to general aviation aircraft after the war, and the first jet, the A-37B Dragonfly trainer. The Citation 1 business jet came along in 1969, followed by improved versions, the latest of which is still in production. US Product liability legislation crippled general aviation production and in 1985 the company was sold to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of General Dynamics. It was then sold in 1992 to Textron.
