Textron Aviation delivers first Mexican-registered Cessna Citation Longitude
Textron Aviation has delivered the first flagship Cessna Citation Longitude business jet registered in Mexico to a customer who plans to use the aircraft for business travel throughout Mexico and North America. The Longitude received certification from the Mexican Federal Civil Aviation Agency (AFAC) in 2022.
“The Citation Longitude’s performance, efficiency and unrivaled cabin experience make it the perfect aircraft for passengers and pilots alike and we are pleased to deliver this for our customers in Mexico,” said Lannie O’Bannion, senior vice president of Global Sales and Flight Operations. “We’re grateful for the owners and operators who continue to choose Citation business jets for their business and personal travel, and to the extraordinary Textron Aviation workforce that designs, builds and maintains our legendary line-up of aircraft.”
The Citation Longitude incorporates the latest technologies throughout the aircraft like integrated autopilot, auto-throttles, and emergency descent mode (EDM). The aircraft is equally designed around the pilot experience, passenger comfort and overall performance, delivering an aircraft that lives up to its designation as the flagship of the Citation family of business jets. Longitude owners and operators in Mexico can appreciate city pairs such as Monterrey, Mexico to Asuncion, Paraguay; Toluca, Mexico to Belem, Brazil; and with only one stop, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to Tokyo, Japan.
Recently, the company announced that the one hundredth production unit of the Longitude rolled out of the factory and is expected to deliver to customer later this year.
