100th Cessna Citation Latitude delivery
The 100th Cessna Citation Latitude midsize business jet has been handed over to NetJets, Inc, at Textron Aviation headquarters in Wichita, Kansas.
“We set out to redefine this segment by investing in a new product with features our customers told us they wanted: large-cabin amenities and best-in-class operating costs. Delivering 100 Latitudes in just over two years is a testament that we’ve got the ideal combination,” said Rob Scholl, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing, Textron Aviation.
NetJets extended its total Latitude order to up to 200 aircraft when it took its first delivery in June 2016.
“The Latitude is one of the most outstanding midsize cabin jets in the industry. It meets our owners’ and our own high standards for performance and safety,” said Doug Henneberry, executive vice president of Aircraft Asset Management, NetJets, Inc.
Textron Aviation delivered 42 Citation Latitudes in 2016, making it the most delivered midsize jet in the world for that year. The aircraft’s mission flexibility has made it popular with fleet operators, corporate owners and special missions operators across the world. With certification in 39 countries, the global fleet has surpassed 45,000 flight hours.
