Textron Aviation delivered the 100th Cessna Citation Longitude business jet to a longtime Citation customer. The Citation Longitude is equally designed around the pilot experience, passenger comfort and overall performance, delivering an aircraft that lives up to its designation as the flagship of the Citation family of business jets. No other super-midsize business jet offers more range, greater payload or higher cruise speed at a lower direct operating cost.

Lannie O’Bannion, senior vice president of Global Sales and Flight Operations, commented: “The Citation Longitude’s performance, efficiency and unrivaled cabin experience have already made it a legendary aircraft in its segment. We’re proud of this significant delivery milestone and of our talented team who continues to design and deliver the best aviation experience for our customers.”

With a range of 3,500 nautical miles and full fuel payload of 1,600 pounds, the Citation Longitude is designed to elevate passenger expectations in the super-midsize class by delivering the quietest cabin, a low cabin altitude (4,950 feet) 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, 6-foot tall flat-floor cabin. A standard double-club configuration delivers the most legroom in the super-midsize class. Fully berthable seats are designed and manufactured in-house, and a spacious walk-in baggage compartment is accessible throughout the flight. State-of-the-art cabin technology enables passengers to manage their environment and entertainment from a mobile device. The spacious cockpit incorporates easier access and an ergonomic design that fully focuses on crew comfort and efficiency.
