File Size 8.3 MB / Running Time 9:05
Things got a lot more interesting in the Columbia Aircraft saga in the last week, with Cirrus Design expressing interest in a takeover that seemed to be sewn up by Cessna. Cirrus CEO Alan Klapmeier told AVweb's Russ Niles that he wasn't about to let Cessna buy his company's main competitor in the high performance market for the $22 million that is on the table right now. Klapmeier has plenty more to say about the deal that will have a significant impact on the future of the piston single market, whichever way it goes.
