Cessna/ Textron announced the production of the much anticipated Citation Longitude in May of 2012. The Latitude is a Super Midsize Jet aircraft powered by two Honeywell HTF7700L turbofans that boast 7,550 lbs of thrust each! Even with these incredibly powerfully engines, the Citation Longitude has the quiet cabin amongst its competition in its class, measuring at 5,950 ft.. It has a range of 3,500 nautical miles which makes this jet perfect for cross country trips non-stop or trips to Hawaii.
This aircraft has incredible performance while needing only 3,400 feet of runway to land and an astonishing 4,900 ft to takeoff. The crew controls this gorgeous bird with Garmin G5000 flight deck. The Longitude really starts to stand out when you step inside, it has a 6 ft. Ceiling height while spreading an incredible 6.5 feet wide and 25.2 feet long with an internal baggage capacity of 112 cubic feet. With this wide cabin the configuration possibilities are endless! The cabin typically has a double club configuration or can be set up with a couch and convenient divan for a tv or serving.
The Longitude is a beautiful pairing of Cessna’s long aviation history and knowledge along with Textron’s groundbreaking innovation. With its low operating cost and high passenger capacity, this aircraft is sure to be a hit. Delayed deliveries have made Cessna’s fan boy’s clamoring at the bit to finally take delivery on one of these legendary birds.
