PITCO Aerospace, which supplies parts to Cessna and other aircraft manufacturers, hopes the market will rebound in 2010. The company, based in East Dayton, Ohio, reported half as much revenue in 2009 compared with 2008 levels. However, the Cessna Skycatcher may be able to capture the entry-level market, as the single-engine plane priced at $112,000 already has generated more than 1,000 orders.
