The Cessna Citation Latitude is a midsize business jet built by Cessna (Textron Aviation).
It was first announced in 2011 at the NBAA convention and achieved its certification in June 2015 with the first deliveries in August of that same year. In the Citation business jet line of aircraft, the Citation Latitude fits right in between the Citation XLS+, which is a bit shorter with a range 3900km, and the Citation Sovereign+ that has a range of 5900km.
The Citation Latitude has a range of 5000km and can handle trips across Europe up to around 4-5 hours. It will comfortably fly you direct from Zurich to Astana or from Brussels to Riyad. You will also get to enjoy the scenery as the windows are 25% larger than those of any previous Citation. Cessna made the Citation Latitude longer, taller, and wider than the famous Citation XLS. Although it is somewhat shorter than the Sovereign, the extended height and width make the difference. Combined with a spacious and stand-up cabin, a flat floor, for the first time in the Citation family, it really gives the passengers a sense of space. Cessna really pushed the comfort level of the midsize jet category. Equipped with NextGen-capable, touch-screen GARMIN G5000 avionics, the Citation Latitude aircraft offers a large cockpit ensuring everyone in the air is at maximum comfort and productivity.
You can seat up to 8 passengers in the spacious and well-designed cabin. The standard configuration includes a club four, a side divan for two and two further seats in the back.
