Cessna Citation Latitude awarded FAA certification, Europe Business Aviation, Falcon 5X Avionics

Cessna Citation Latitude awarded FAA certification

Cessna Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. company, announced that the Citation Latitude business jet has achieved type certification from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Deliveries are scheduled to begin in the third quarter of this year. The new Citation Latitude represents the perfect balance of comfort and efficiency and is the first business jet to combine a roomy, flat floor, stand-up cabin, with a mid-size price and best-in-class operating costs.

Cessna Citation Latitude awarded FAA certification

“From inception, we looked at every aspect of how we design, build and deliver new products to the market with the goal to further improve upon the key attributes that make the Citation so highly esteemed,” said Scott Ernest, president, and CEO of Textron Aviation. “Throughout the certification program, the Latitude demonstrated breakthrough results, which are evident in the aircraft’s performance and value proposition. And now, customers can experience firsthand how the Latitude can reduce operating costs, while increasing productivity and profitability for their businesses.”

FAA certification follows the aircraft’s first Atlantic crossing and European debut at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition in May.  Customer reception remains strong as the aircraft’s transcontinental and European performance capabilities were showcased during a month-long regional demonstration tour. The aircraft flew non-stop from St. John’s, Newfoundland to Valencia, Spain in just over 5 hours demonstrating notable fuel efficiency that would allow the aircraft to continue to several additional European destinations. The Citation Latitude will continue its global debut scheduled throughout the remainder of the year.

8C inspection done on Bombardier Global

Jet Aviation Singapore has undertaken the first Bombardier Global 8C Inspection in the Asia Pacific region. The inspection will be completed in conjunction with an interior refurbishment.

The inspection began earlier this month at the company’s newly expanded MRO facility at Seletar Aerospace Park. As the aircraft’s largest maintenance event, the 10-year 8C inspection requires an extensive dismantling of the cabin for a thorough check of the airframe and structures, including a major overhaul of the landing gear, examination of all operating systems and a detailed review of the aircraft’s flight documents.

European Business Aviation flights on the increase

Eurozone business aviation has clearly recovered. The region saw its six largest markets, comprising 56% of total activity, all grow. Other important markets such as Spain and Turkey also increased activity in May, according to data compiled by WINGX Advance.

In total, there were 73,436 business aviation flight departures in Europe in May, 493 more than in May 2014. That is a 0.7% YOY growth. Strong growth in Germany, France, and Italy, in particular, was partly offset by declines in Switzerland, Austria, and The Netherlands.

Honeywell Exec Expands on Dassault’s Falcon 5X Latest Integrated Avionics

Dassault has unveiled its latest iteration of the Falcon jet family: the Falcon 5X, flying with Honeywell’s Primus Epic EASy III cockpit technologies. With the 5X set to make its maiden flight this summer, the suite of integrated avionics aims to offer operators a smooth and easy flying experience through cutting edge technology.

“High end biz jets like these want state-of-the-art functionality, they want more than just the minimum certified capability, so we started offering wide screen, high resolution color displays that could show 3-D type formats that pilots find easier to manipulate, easier to train with, safer to operate,” Tom Lawler, director of marketing and product management at Honeywell, told Avionics Magazine.

OPINION: Why Dassault’s wide-cabin 5X will succeed

The industry got its first glimpse of the all-new and eagerly-anticipated Falcon 5X at a dedicated roll-out ceremony on 2 June.

Dassault’s first clean-sheet design for more than a decade is a triumph. So too is its strategy to make this impressive wide-cabin business jet the benchmark for a family of new-generation Falcons.

With a cabin 2.58m (8.5ft) wide and 1.98m high, the 5X has the largest internal cross section of any traditional business jet on the market today – greater than its sector rivals the Bombardier Global 5000, Gulfstream G450 and in-development G500.

It is bigger even than the G650 and the developmental Global 7000 and 8000 – all positioned at the top end of the ultra-long-range sector where Dassault will eventually stake a claim.

The FAA has certified Gulfstream Aerospace’s G650ER long-range business jet, verifying the airworthiness of the aircraft’s design and clearing the way for G650ER deliveries to begin. Gulfstream announced the ultra-long-range aircraft in May and expects to deliver the first fully outfitted G650ER business jets to customers before year-end. This is ahead of the projected 2015 delivery date.

Every major business jet manufacturer will descend on Orlando for the annual NBAA (National Business Aviation Association) extravaganza in less than two weeks, and all of them will spar for the attention of prospective customers interested in upgrading their current aircraft or purchasing one of the new models in development or in flight test.

For Cessna Aircraft Co., the timing couldn’t be better. Its pilots have been putting the Citation Latitude prototypes through their paces since February when the first aircraft first flew. With every test flight, the jet has hit the mark. Now Cessna is reporting that the certification program has yielded improvements in range and runway performance beyond what the company initially projected. As a result, the aircraft specification is being changed to reflect an increase in range, to 2,700 nm at long-range cruise, an increase of 200 nm. Runway performance also is significantly improved, with takeoff distance now 3,668 ft., rather than 4,030 ft.

Nextant has delivered the first UK-owned 400XTi business jet to Norwich-based business aviation services provider SaxonAir.

The handover brings to seven the total number of the remanufactured light twinjets delivered to European customers to date. “The European 400XTi fleet has proven itself as a strong revenue generator on the European charter market with the majority of the fleet operating more than 90h a month [each],” says the Cleveland, Ohio-based company, which introduced the 400XTi last year.

Moscow Business Aviation Forum recap

On September 3, over 120 business aviation professionals attended the 7th Business Aviation Forum in Moscow. The event serves as Russia’s leading communication and networking platform organized for the business aviation community – both in Russia and globally. Operators, brokers, manufacturers and suppliers, airport managers, and service and equipment providers all enjoyed the unique opportunity to learn more about key market trends and establish new business connections.

 

The Cessna Citation XLS+ was the centerpiece of the company’s exhibit at the China International Business Aviation Show at the Flight Inspection Center of the Civil Aviation Authority of China in Beijing, China Sept. 16-18., representing its role both in Cessna’s joint venture in China and as one of the best-selling business jet models ever produced. Cessna Aircraft Company is a subsidiary of Textron Aviation, a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company.

The Citation XLS+ was certified by the CAAC in April. This was a key milestone in the joint venture agreement between Cessna and China Aviation Industry General Aviation Company Ltd. (CAIGA) for final assembly and delivery of Citation XLS+ aircraft to customers in China.

Citation XLS+ Tops Cessna Exhibit At China Business Aviation Show

“The Citation XLS+ has earned a reputation for performance and reliability. It continues to be a market leader in the midsize business jet segment because it has proven to be a smart investment in helping to grow a business without sacrificing the cabin features you expect in private air travel,” said Bill Schultz, senior vice president of Business Development in China. “The XLS+ is perfectly suited for the Chinese market due to its acquisition and operating costs, its range, and particularly its performance at high-altitude airports in many parts of the country.”

Customers are responding positively to the new Garmin avionics and the many other interior and exterior features that allow this aircraft to fly farther, smarter and more comfortably than before.”
