Development of the Citation Longitude began in 2012. The first prototype of the Citation Longitude, known as the Model 700, made its first flight in 2016. It was certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in September 2019.
The Longitude’s cabin is 6 feet high, 6.42 feet wide, and 25.2 feet long. Configurations range from eight to 12 seats with a rear lavatory. The walk-in baggage compartment has a storage capacity of up to 1,000 pounds and is accessible throughout the entire flight without any restrictions.
The Citation Longitude is powered by two Honeywell HTF7700L turbofan engines, which provide a maximum cruise speed of 476 knots (549 mph) and a range of up to 3,500 nautical miles (4,028 miles). It has a maximum takeoff weight of 39,500 pounds and a maximum altitude of 45,000 feet.
The new price for a Longitude is around $29 million, with used types around $26 million.
Textron Aviation’s largest jet—the Longitude—is gaining ground in the super-midsize market...Although it shares the flat-floor cabin width and height dimensions of the Latitude, the Longitude is a fairly big step up from its smaller sibling...The Longitude is longer by 3 feet, 5 inches in cabin length (and adds) significantly added range...and fly 3,500 nm, compared with the Latitude’s 2,700 nm (each with four passengers).
Since its certification in 2019, it has so far scored 175 sales to NetJets, the world’s largest fractional, plus deliveries to 31 private customers. It’s the roomiest, quietest, most luxurious and capable of the Citation line, with all of the creature comforts an executive—and his entourage—would need. That includes an optional aft divan, berthable seats, and connectivity that can bring Wi-Fi, internet, and text messaging to the cabin. More on that later.
The new Citation Longitude includes seating for up to 12 passengers, including an optional crew jump seat. The cabin features a stand-up, 6-foot tall flat-floor cabin. Textron Aviation said a standard double-club configuration delivers 11 percent more leg room than its nearest competitor.
