Citation Longitude progressing on schedule


Cessna has completed the wing and fuselage mate of the first Citation Longitude, six months after revealing the new aircraft. The company says the super-midsize aircraft is on track for its first flight this summer and entry into service in 2017. “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 clean-sheet aircraft offers a cabin altitude of 5,950ft. Passengers will be able to manage their environment and entertainment from any mobile device. The aircraft also features standard high-speed internet service. With seating for up to 12 passengers, the Longitude features a stand-up, flat-floor cabin with a standard double-club configuration and a walk-in baggage compartment that is fully accessible in flight. The aircraft offers a full fuel payload of 1,500 lb, a maximum cruise speed of 476kts and a high-speed range of 3,400 nautical miles.
