Cessna By Textron Aviation

Cessna founder Clyde V. Cessna worked as a mechanic and auto salesman for Overland Automobiles. In 1911, Clyde attended an airshow near Oklahoma City. Shortly after attending the airshow, Clyde got the urge to fly. Using a kit from Queens Airplane Company in the Bronx, he put together his aircraft. After many failed attempts, he eventually got the hang of flying and became a decent pilot. By 1916, he was offered a rent-free space at the Jones Motor Car factory in Wichita, Kansas. His only condition was that whatever new aircraft he produced had to have the name of a particular car model called "Jones-Six" painted on the underside of its wings.

A year later, the Comet was built. But World War I forced a halt in production and sales. Because most essential build parts and supplies were reserved for war use, Cessna accepted his failed business and returned to his original profession – farming.

In 1925, Cessna teamed up with businessmen Walter Beech and Lloyd Stearman to build and produce more aircraft. Together, they created Travel Air Manufacturing Company with Cessna as its president. Two years later, Cessna teamed up with Victor Roos to create the Cessna-Roos Company and began producing more aircraft. However, Roos left shortly after the company's establishment for another job. After selling an A and D series of aircraft, private aircraft sales fell to an all-time low. And in 1931, Cessna was forced to close his company again.

Two years later, Cessna's nephew Dwane Wallace received his degree in aeronautical engineering from Wichita University. While working for Beech Aircraft Company, he convinced the board to allow his uncle to reopen his shop and continue producing aircraft. At the time, Beech occupied a small section of Cessna's former factory.

Cessna eventually retired in 1936, selling all of his remaining shares to his nephews, Dwane and Dwight Wallace. Under the Wallace Brothers' leadership, Cessna built its first twin-engine aircraft in 1938. Shortly after, demands came pouring in from the U.S. and Canadian military for training aircraft. As a result of World War II, Cessna expanded into business aircraft and eventually became part of Textron Aviation.
