Cessna’s new Citation Latitude $16M mid-sized business jet is now ready for manufacturing roll-out and deliveries.
Deliveries are expected to begin in the final quarter of this year.
What makes the Citation Latitude Unique
The Citation Latitude is being talked about as a “break-through” aircraft in mid-sized private jets due to its increased cabin size – taller and wider than any in the Citation range – without an associated increase in its operating costs.
The Citation Latitude cabin experience is one of the major focus areas in developing the aircraft. Cessna’s Citation jets have always been known in the private jet world for their reliability and performance, but in recent years have seen increasing competition from other manufacturers when it comes to cabin design.
So their aim with the Citation Latitude was to create an “unmatched cabin experience at this price point.” The cabin is 77 inches wide; has a truly flat floor; and a stand up height of six feet throughout.
There are six ergonomically-designed single seats, plus a double side-facing couch option.
Advanced touchscreen entertainment technology and a choice of interior design options add to the Latitude’s stylish appeal.
Its certified maximum range of 2,850nm puts it at the upper end of the category (and is much further than the original spec of 2000nm), enabling it to cover the whole of the US without a fuel stop, as well as complete transatlantic business. Which means wherever your private charter needs to take you, this aircraft can get you there without problems.
And when it comes to the avionics, the Citation Latitude’s flight deck includes touchscreen displays and Garmin’s Synthetic Vision Technology system – giving pilots’ a virtual-reality view of terrain, obstacles, traffic and runways outside of their range of vision.
When will the Citation Latitude become available for charter?
With customer deliveries starting from the autumn, the Citation Latitude will become available for charter in 2016.
We can’t wait to see how it shakes up the mid-sized market.
