Textron Aviation has delivered the 100th Cessna Citation Longitude business jet, to a long-time Citation customer. Textron Aviation employees marked the milestone with a special celebration at the company’s headquarters in Wichita, Kansas.
“The Citation Longitude’s performance, efficiency and unrivalled cabin experience have already made it a legendary aircraft in its segment,” said Lannie O’Bannion, senior vice president of global sales and flight operations. “We’re proud of this significant delivery milestone and of our talented team who continue to design and deliver the best aviation experience for our customers.”
The Citation Longitude is equally designed around the pilot experience, passenger comfort and overall performance, and is the flagship of the Citation family of business jets.
The super-midsize aircraft has a range of 3,500 nautical miles and full fuel payload of 1,600 lb. It is designed to offer a quiet cabin; low cabin altitude (4,950ft); more standard features; and a comfortable, bespoke interior.
With seating for up to 12 passengers, including an optional crew jump seat, the Longitude features a stand-up, 6ft-tall flat-floor cabin. It has a standard double-club configuration. Fully berthable seats are designed and manufactured in-house, and a spacious walk-in baggage compartment is accessible throughout the flight. Passengers can manage their environment and entertainment from a mobile device.
