Announced in 2012, the middle class business jet Cessna Citation Longitude is a new thing in aviation, designed for long-distance flights with eight passengers on board. The radius of travel without refueling for the Citation Longitude jet is not more than 7,400 kilometers. One can visit Dubai or Beijing, taking off from the airport in Moscow. As easily, the Cessna Citation Longitude jet connects ceremonious London and hectic New York. The Cessna Citation Longitude, the sale of which was originally planned for 2017 at a price not less than 25 million USD, exceeded all expectations. The first flight of a business jet of the super-middle class will transpire in 2014, and upon FAA certification, it will be available to carry out charter flights. Charter flights on this slender beautiful jet, which is now “thinner” by 15 centimeters, will be available in 2015.

Cessna Citation Longitude jets are available for purchase today. Few people can resist the temptation to get closer to this technological masterpiece, which smoothly flies through the air, and with grace conquers the sky at speed of Mach 0.86. Comfortably furnished passenger cabins, despite the seemingly compact design of the business jet, did not prevent it from being the most spacious in its class, which opens up new horizons in the class of super-midsize jets. Quick flights, comfortable accommodation and a variety of options of interior design with ergonomic and modern layout - all this can be said in a few words - the Cessna Citation Longitude jet.

The modified wings of the Cessna Citation Longitude jet have moderate sweeps with traditional wingtips that reduces air resistance, and therefore, saves fuel. Wingspan is increased, and inductive reactance is decreased due to the breakdown of the air-wing vortex flows.

The power unit in the Cessna Citation Longitude can be both from Snecma Silvercrest (France) with a thrust of 56 kilonewtons, and also from the Pratt & Whitney PW306D with FADEC. In the first case, the cruising speed is of around 907 kilometers an hour, while the second is of 819 kilometers an hour. The French give a head start to the Americans, setting the range of 7,408 kilometers against 4,260 kilometers from Pratt & Whitney. The first unit is more environmentally friendly, while the second lifts a load off the pilots so they can focus on other tasks. The cockpit is equipped even more practically. The Garmin G5000 avionics with three LCD displays increases the screen to display data about the flight. Handling can be performed via touch panels. An exclusive feature of the Cessna Citation Longitude jet is the GRA 5500 is a radar altimeter, which can be easily handled even in rough terrain.

Passengers can forget about bending down, walking to the minibar or to bathroom. The height of the passenger compartment in a Cessna Citation Longitude jet in the aisle is 183 centimeters. Corporate trips in the Citation Longitude jet - with a luxury charter - can be arranged for six to nine people. Designers and engineers worked on the physical and visual spaciousness of the passenger compartment of the Cessna Citation Longitude jet: Natural light from the windows perfectly emphasizes light and its spacious interior. Seats allow each passenger to choose the most comfortable position of the seat, and then expand into a full bed. Landing and taking off are very smooth mainly because of the seats, where passengers spend most of the flight. The basic option of the interior includes a three-seat sofa and a club interior has two pairs of seats facing each other. Charter flights on the Cessna Citation Longitude jet mean really great comfort for those who know how to enjoy life in any situation.
