More bad news for Cessna, it will be cutting back production of the Citation CJ, Sovereign and Citation X business jets at the main Wichita production facility. Cessna will be furloughing some workers on the production lines for these planes. The new furloughs are in addition to earlier job cut announcements. While Cessna had originally planned to build over 535 jets this year it now is planning to only produce 375. Cessna is also slowing the engineering work on the planned Citation Columbus large jet which was slated to be ready in 2014 but could be pushed further out.
