  1. Successful Wing And Fuselage Mating On First Citation Longitude
    Today at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) Cessna announced an important project milestone as it concerns the Citation Longitude program. The wings and fuselage have been successfully mated on the first article – a major achievement in any aircraft build-. First flight is earmarked for this Summer with certification and entry into service in 2017.
  2. “Since introducing the new Citation Longitude to the market only six months ago, the team has been working diligently to meet a development schedule unmatched in the industry, and it’s rewarding to see the aircraft taking shape,” said Scott Ernest, president and CEO, Textron Aviation. “The market is asking for this aircraft and we are pleased to take a concept inspired by what our customers need in payload, speed, range and cabin comfort and turn it into a class-leading jet with the lowest total ownership costs.”
  3. The clean-sheet design of the Longitude integrates the latest technology throughout the aircraft, bringing customers the lowest ownership costs in this category. It features the next evolution of the Garmin G5000 flight deck and is powered by FADEC-equipped Honeywell HTF7700L turbofan engines with fully integrated autothrottles. The aircraft offers a full fuel payload of 1,500 pounds, a maximum cruise speed of 476 knots and a high-speed range of 3,400 nautical miles. With head-up display and enhanced vision capability, the Longitude facilitates eyes-up flying.
