  1. FAA Certification Near For Cessna Citation Longitude
    The latest in-development model from Textron Aviation's brand Cessna is nearing the finish line. The Citation Longitude which recently came back from its global tour and then showing at the just concluded 2018 edition of the European Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (EBACE), is expected to receive type certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) soon. The team used five aircraft and nearly 50 ground test articles to expedite testing, whereas previous certification programs featured three aircraft and fewer than 30 ground assets. This innovative approach enabled the program to move swiftly through the development and certification process, while affording agility for enhancements driven by customer feedback.
  2. “We’re in the home stretch now and eager to move one step closer to delivering this new Citation flagship jet to our excited inaugural customers around the globe,” said Brad Thress, senior vice president of Engineering. “This is the most robust certification process we’ve ever been required to conduct for a Citation, which means we will deliver an exceptionally verified, clean-sheet aircraft that will thrill pilots and passengers alike. We’re introducing one of the most thoroughly-researched passenger experiences — one that will revolutionize the super-midsize category with its low cabin altitude, class-leading legroom and low decibel cabin sound levels that are half of its nearest competitor.” The Citation Longitude will now assume the role as the Cessna flagship now that Textron Aviation cancelled the Citation Hemisphere program.
