Totals and company lists below filtered for North America only. Adjust site filter for other regions.


The Cessna Citation Longitude, a super-midsize jet, made its first flight on 8 October, 2016. It took off from Beech Field airport and was piloted by experimental test pilots Ed Wenninger and Stuart Rogerson, who said at the time: “The level of maturity in flight characteristics is already very high.”

FAA certification was obtained on 23 September, 2019 after 6,000 flight hours, 11,000 test points and a 31,000 nm world tour.

The Longitude is a 3,500 nm range business jet powered by Honeywell HTF7000 turbofan engines with fully integrated autothrottles. The fuselage cross-section of the aluminium airframe is a stretched version of the Latitude that incorporates an extra seat row to accommodate eight passengers in double club configuration. It has a ~28° swept wing, a T-tail empennage and area rule fuselage contouring. The wings incorporate moderate winglets.

The aircraft offers a full fuel payload of 1,500 pounds, a maximum cruise speed of 476 knots and a high-speed range of 3,400 nm.

The Longitude utilises True Blue Power lithium-ion batteries. The dual electrical system powers seven screens in the Garmin G5000 cockpit suite, and the LinxUs system automatically relays faults and system health information to the Cessna service network. The aircraft is designed to feature the longest maintenance intervals in its class: 800 hours or 18 months.

The windows are around 30 per cent larger than those of earlier Citations. With seating for up to 12 passengers, including an optional crew jump seat, the Longitude features a stand-up, six ft tall flat floor cabin. Floor width is 4 ft 1 in and cabin length is 25 ft. There are a total of eight seats in a double-club configuration, or nine if using the optional three-seat divan. The baggage compartment can be accessed in flight through the vacuum-powered lavatory. Cabin technology enables passengers to manage their environment and entertainment from any mobile device.
