FedEx may purchase nearly 100 of Cessna’s new freight aircrafts

Cessna, a U.S. based airplane manufacturing firm and a subsidiary of Textron, has divulged a new design referred as Sky Courier for miniature freighter & passenger airplanes. According to authentic sources, FedEx Corporation, a global courier delivery service firm based in the U.S., has decided to purchase fifty flying delivery trucks of Cessna, and in all likelihood, will add approximately one every month for nearly four years. It is forecast that the former may even buy more than fifty Sky Couriers from Cessna.

Market analysts claim that the multinational courier delivery service organization is swiftly modernizing its armada of small airplanes to remain in the forefront across the global courier delivery service sector. Experts have stated that this will be win-win situation for both Cessna and FedEx, which runs one of the biggest airplane fleets across the globe.

It has been claimed that Sky Courier, with a speed of two hundred and thirty miles per hour, can pull six thousand pounds of cargo as far as nine-hundred nautical miles. The high speed of the airplane will apparently assist FedEx to fly its courier packets from its key headquarters in Memphis in the U.S. to destinations as far away as Connecticut, North Dakota, Caribbean, and New Mexico. It is likely that the new kind of freighter aircrafts will be delivered to FedEx by 2020.

The new airplane is designed to ferry nearly nineteen passengers as well as two crew members along with the freight. Cessna has carried out extensive research work for developing freighter aircrafts with lightweight features that will help it function effectively in even tough climatic conditions, cite reports. The aircraft’s body is apparently designed in such a way that it can fit approximately three specially shaped vessels, which can slot directly into the tummy of the bigger freight carrier, and can rapidly speed up the airport connections.
