Textron Aviation, Cessna’s parent company, made the announcement at the Latin American Business Aviation Exhibition & Conference (LABACE), in São Paulo, Brazil.
The Sovereign+ has already been certificated in Argentina, Chile and Mexico, however Cessna are expecting the Brazilian Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil in the coming month.
Once approved, Cessna will be able to begin deliveries to Brazilian clients.
“The Citation Sovereign+ has already gained attention in Latin America for its short-field performance and its range,” says Kriya Shortt senior vice president of sales and marketing at Textron Aviation.
“Customers in São Paulo or Buenos Aires can reach the whole of South America non-stop, while a large portion of the US is one flight away for customers leaving Manaus or Caracas.”
By the end of the second quarter of this year, Cessna had delivered 24 Sovereign+ private jets.
