Cessna Aircraft has delivered its first Cessna TTx single-engine plane to an international buyer, the company announced Tuesday.

The all-composite plane was delivered to Kiatichai Monsereenusorn, managing director of Kiattana Transport, based in Thailand. Monsereenusorn took delivery of the plane at Cessna’s Independence plant. In a news release, Cessna officials said the aircraft will allow Monsereenusorn to visit multiple business sites in a day.

The TTx was certified in July.

The international delivery is an important milestone, said Jodi Noah, Cessna’s senior vice president for single-engine and propeller aircraft.

“This aircraft has our global customer base very energized,” Noah said in a statement. “Aviation customers recognize the TTx as synonymous with innovation, performance and luxury. This delivery is proof that the appeal of the TTx is not constrained by lines on a map.”
