For the second time in 14 days, Cessna Aircraft Company
introduced plans for a new airplane. Plans for the new Citation
Latitude mid-size business jet Monday morning at the start of the
64th NBAA Annual Meeting and Convention. This is Cessna's second
new product announcement in the past 14 days; the company launched
the Citation M2 light business jet on September 26.
Cessna's Mike Pierce tells ANN that the Latitude is positioned
between the Citation XLS+ and Citation Sovereign in Cessna's
product line, the Citation Latitude offers a full fuel payload of
1,000 pounds, a maximum cruise speed of 442 knots true airspeed and
a range of 2,000 nautical miles. The aircraft is priced at $14.9
million in 2011 USD.
The Citation Latitude's cockpit is anchored by the new, fully
integrated Garmin G5000 system that centers on three 14-inch LCD
primary and multifunction displays and four touch-screen control
panels. It includes an integrated Flight Director/Autopilot and
Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS).
Among the standard features of the new system are a
pilot-vehicle touch-screen interface, TCAS II with Change 7.1,
Synthetic Vision Technology, electronic charts, Garmin's SafeTaxi,
a dual flight management system with WAAS LPV and RNP, solid-state
weather radar with turbulence detection and vertical scan
capability, integrated terrain awareness and warning system (TAWS),
ADS-B Out and Link 2000+ data link. Options include satellite
weather and an ICAO Type 1A flight data recorder.
