Description: The Citation is a family of business jets developed by Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron owned company, to meet the requirements of customers operating from regional to intercontinental routes. Citation jets are powered by two turbofan engines and cruise at high speeds while delivering outstanding comfort to the passengers in their spacious cabins. Cessna has received more than 5,300 Citation jets orders since the program inception in 1975. As of early 2008, the Cessna Citation production models are: CJ1+, CJ2+, CJ3, Encore+, XLS+, X, Sovereign, and Mustang with CJ4 and Columbus models to join Cessna's product line in 2010 and 2014 respectively.

The Cessna Citation Longitude is a super mid-size business jet offering the longest range and largest cabin within the Cessna Citation aircraft family. With 4,000 nautical miles (+7,000 kilometers) range and a maximum speed of Mach 0.86, the Longitude can make non-stop flights from New York to Paris, London to Dubai or Beijing to Moscow. The cabin has enough room for a two-man crew and up to eight passengers with enhanced connectivity. The aircraft will be powered by two Snecma Silvercrest engines developing 11,000 pounds of thrust at takeoff each. The engines will provide higher fuel efficiency, lower emissions as well as lower operating costs thanks to extended maintenance intervals compared to current engines in the same class. In addition, the aircraft features advanced winglets to help reduce fuel consumption and improved hot/high performance, climb and fuel burn. Cessna announced the launch of the Longitude program in May 2012 at EBACE exhibition with an entry into service planned for 2017.

The Citation Longitude will feature state-of-the-art cockpit with Garmin G5000 avionics and touch-screen controls being fully compliant with emerging operating requirements for intercontinental aircraft such as FANS/CPDLC, ADSB and RNP. Cabin seat configuration options include a dual-club eight-seat arrangement and a four-place forward club with a three-place couch and entertainment credenza. Cabin-length indirect LED lighting is provided overhead in the passenger service units with variable adjustment for direct reading lights and more. For long-distance travel comfort, the cabin is equipped with a dual-zone temperature control, a fully operational galley with an oven and cold storage along with a pressurized water system. The aircraft features a large lavatory equipped with a vacuum-assist toilet. The cabin also features in-flight access to a spacious baggage storage area.
