Cessna sees Citation Ten with Clairity a success in Middle East


Company can’t wait to bring the Citation Ten to the region

Cessna expects the new Citation Ten business
jet to be very attractive to Middle East
customers, particularly given the features of Clairity, Cessna’s new
proprietary cabin technology system.

Mark Paolucci, Cessna senior vice president
for sales, said “We can’t wait to bring the Citation Ten to the Middle East and the world. As a larger, advanced version
of the Citation X, already the world’s fastest certified business jet, the
speed of the Citation Ten will quite simply be exceptional, expected cruising
at up to 527 knots [976 kilometers an hour]. And with an expected maximum range
of 3,245 nautical miles, the Ten will make a city pairing such as Riyadh-London
a convenient nonstop flight.”

Paolucci said “Clairity is the ultimate,
industry-leading connectivity experience. The clean, intuitive user interface
has created an elegant, sophisticated system with multiple ways of interacting
with the customer.”

The Citation Ten program is on track for
first flight by year-end 2011 and deliveries are expected for the second half
of 2013.
