In mid-February 2014, the sky for the first time saw the middle class category business jet, the Cessna Citation Latitude. The very first flight of the prototype of the Citation Latitude jet has was enough for engineers to conduct all necessary tests of the gear, flaps, and other structural elements, as well as the reliability of the functions included like anti-icing system, sealing cabin, business jet handling and its stability in various flight conditions. As a consequence, the Cessna Citation Latitude jet is able to reach a height of 8,535 meters and accelerates to a speed of 370 kilometers an hour (Mach 0.6). All the aircraft’s systems during the test were normal. The final assembly of the jet was completed only one month before the first test flight.

The price for the Cessna Citation Latitude jet starts as low as 14.9 to 16.25 million dollars. The silhouette of the fuselage resembles a wax, frozen under a stream of warm air – while perfect flowing lines and the extended head are designed to maximize the aerodynamic characteristics of the jet. Charter flights on the Citation Latitude business jets will surely be in demand due to the special charisma of exterior shapes. To perform a flight on board of such a jet means showing uncompromisingly in show a sense of style and approving one’s high social status. However, one can’t afford such a pleasure until mid-2015; the jet must complete FAA certification in accordance with Part25. The sale of 150 new Citation Latitude jets is guaranteed due to assurance of a major customer NetJets. There will be 25 standing orders, and the remaining 125 will be optional. The price of the contract signed in 2012 is not disclosed.

With its new product, Cessna at this time perfectly confirmed its ability to use the best approach to the design of private jets. The new Cessna Citation Latitude model uses reliable nodes and connections of a proven technology and practices, but the functions of the jet increased significantly. One may particularly note the wing assemblies, engines Pratt & Whitney PW306D with a traction of 2,612 kilograms per second, which have a service life of 6,000 flight hours, which are normally used for the Sovereign+. Its wings are equipped with static removers and light signaling equipment. Avionics Garmin5000 is integrated into the system, which is controlled using the touch screen or personal devices of the passengers.

Comfort flights in Cessna Citation Latitude jet is ensured by a height of the cabin (183 centemeters) and noticeably wider fuselage (196 centimeters), which creates space for the trip of nine to twelve people. Access hatch has a width of 80 centimeters, which provides convenience at the moment of landing. The artificial interior lighting has a great composed direction. Even with the blinds, it creates the impression of diffused daylight from the ceiling niches. It is enough to see an overview of the cabin, to realize that Cessna Citation Latitude occupies a niche place among business super-middle class aviation for a reason.

The flight is performed at a cruising speed of 815 kilometers an hour at an altitude of 13,716 meters, the Citation Latitude jet rises to the ceiling for a little over an hour. Flight characteristics generally allow to perform the flights for a distance of up to 4,630 kilometers. From Moscow, the Cessna Citation Latitude business jet will easily get to London, Barcelona or Dubai.
