First Cessna Citation Longitude jet registered in Mexico

Textron Aviation has delivered the first flagship Cessna Citation Longitude business jet registered in Mexico to a customer who plans to utilize the aircraft for business travel throughout Mexico and the rest of North America.

The Longitude received certification from the Mexican Federal Civil Aviation Agency in 2022.

No other super-midsize business jet offers more range, greater payload, or higher cruise speed at a lower direct operating cost than the Longitude, Textron said in a company press release. The aircraft incorporates the latest technologies throughout the aircraft like integrated autopilot, autothrottles, and emergency descent mode.

The company recently announced that the 100th production unit of the Citation Longitude rolled out of the factory and is expected to be delivered later this year.

With a range of 6,482 kilometers (3,500 nautical miles) and full fuel payload of 726 kilograms (1,600 pounds), the Citation Longitude is designed to elevate passenger expectations in the super-midsize class.

With seating for up to 12 passengers, including an optional crew jump seat, the Longitude features a stand-up, 6-foot tall flat-floor cabin. The aircraft is powered by FADEC-equipped Honeywell HTF7700L turbofan engines.
