The Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) has taken delivery of a special mission Cessna Citation Longitude fitted with flight inspection calibration equipment from Textron Aviation. The aircraft will conduct flight validation and flight inspection operations to ensure the integrity of the airways that constitute the national airspace of Japan.

Textron Aviation is honoured to once again be selected as the aircraft provider of choice for the JCAB,” says Textron vice president, special mission sales Bob Gibbs. “The Longitude continues the legacy of Cessna Citation flight inspection jet aircraft in service by the JCAB. Its performance, large cabin and capabilities provide the JCAB a new level of efficiency and productivity in maintaining the operational integrity of its airports and airways.”

The JCAB Longitude is outfitted with the UNIFIS 3000-G2 flight inspection equipment to perform critical verification of navigation aids such as Instrument Landing System Category I, II, and III (ILS Cat I, II and III) approaches, Ground Based Augmentation System (GBAS), Very High Frequency Omni-Directional Range (VOR), Tactical Air Navigation System (TACAN) and much more.
