Rose Pelton takes possession of Cessna's first SkyCatcher

WICHITA — She didn't take off or land — "It being my first lesson and all" — but Rose Pelton took possession of her new SkyCatcher Dec. 18.

The wife of Cessna Aircraft CEO Jack Pelton says she's honored to be the owner of the first SkyCatcher off the line.

"She's flying great," Rose Pelton says of the plane.

"Yingling (Aviation) did a very nice job of making it a very special day for me," she says. When Pelton first saw the plane, "It had this huge bow on it."

She calls herself an "absolutely" satisfied customer.

Her husband has a bit of a complaint, though.

"My life is now being scheduled around her flight training," he wrote on her Facebook page.
