Cessna Makes Key Announcements At National Business Aviation Association Press Conference

Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, today made several key announcements at the National Business Aviation Association’s annual conference relating to innovation in aircraft design, commitment to customer service and addressing customer needs.

“This year, we are thrilled with the steps we have taken to deliver what our customers want and need,” said Scott Ernest, Cessna President and CEO. “These innovations further underscore our commitment to bring cutting edge aircraft and service to market for today and tomorrow and to exceed our customers’ expectations year after year.”

Innovation Continues at Cessna: Introducing the new Citation Sovereign

The New Citation Sovereign now delivers increased range, updated technologies and enhanced capabilities. Features of the New Citation Sovereign, currently on display at NBAA include:

  • New cockpit with Garmin G5000 avionics suite
  • Increased range by 150 nm, boosting the New Citation Sovereign total range to over 3,000 nm
  • Powered by the new Pratt & Whitney Canada PW306D engine
  • New cabin amenities including the integrated Cessna Clarity™ cabin management system, in addition to improved seat design
  • Improved short runway performance
  • Integrated automatic throttles
  • Winglets have been added, giving the aircraft a distinct appearance and an aerodynamic boost
  • Improved ground cooling performance

Line flow has already started on the New Citation Sovereign, and entry into service is expected in the early third quarter of 2013. The new Sovereign will also be available with a utility configuration, with options to carry payload, people, or both, depending on the mission requirements.

The New Citation X; Retaining the name that started it all

Much to customers’ delight, the Citation X name will live on. When the plans were drawn to improve on the Citation X systems and performance, that aircraft was to be called the “Citation TEN”. Through the design and certification process, the Citation TEN has claimed the title of world’s fastest business jet, but customers have told Cessna that they prefer the new aircraft retain the Citation X name.
