Wichita – August 2011
To celebrate it’s collaboration, Alpina and Cessna recently held an exiting event at Cessna Aircraft’s Head Quarters in Wichita, Kansas. Selected VIP Customers attended a presentation and viewed over 30 airplanes in different stages of production. Thereafter various Cessna planes were inspected in the main showroom at Cessna, including a brandnew Cessna Citation Mustang.
“We both rely on precision, hand-crafted products to please our customers,” said Alpina Managing Director Peter Stas. “Since Cessna and Alpina are essentially talking to the same people, cooperating through events like this benefit both companies.”
Alpina proudly joins forces with Cessna Aircraft and PrivatAir, signing a three-year agreement with both partners, to support the introduction of it’s important new Startimer Pilot collection. Favorite of the event was the Alpina Startimer Automatic with in-house developed and produced automatic caliber AL-710, featuring minute and hour indication and off-center date hand, combining a historic pilot watch design features with a modern day lay out.
During the coming three years, Alpina Geneve, Cessna Aircraft and PrivatAir work together closely to promote their equally high quality products and services, through cross-marketing activities in Europe and North America.
