Textron Aviation has delivered its 100th flagship Cessna Citation Longitude business jet.

Employees at Textron Aviation marked the milestone with a special celebration at the company’s headquarters in Wichita.

The aircraft went to a longtime customer of the company, Textron said.

The Cessna Citation Longitude super-midsize business jet is designed, produced and delivered by Textron Aviation.

“The Citation Longitude’s performance, efficiency and unrivaled cabin experience have already made it a legendary aircraft in its segment,” said Lannie O’Bannion, senior vice president of global sales and flight operations.

“We’re proud of this significant delivery milestone and of our talented team who continues to design and deliver the best aviation experience for our customers.”

Cessna Citation Longitude in Mexico

Earlier this year, Textron Aviation delivered the first flagship Cessna Citation Longitude business jet registered in Mexico to a customer to use for business travel throughout North America.

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

The Longitude, with a range of 6,482 kilometres (3,500 nautical miles) and full fuel payload of 726 kilograms (1,600 pounds), incorporates the latest technologies throughout the aircraft like integrated autopilot, autothrottles, and emergency descent mode (EDM).

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.
