Our Guide to the Cessna Citation Latitude

A Super-Midsize Business Jet Backed by the Reputation of Cessna

Textron Aviation and Cessna released the Citation Latitudeto the public in August 2015, keeping the Sovereign’s wing, cruciform tail, and twin Pratt & Whitney PW306D turbofan engines. Its stand-up fuselage and flat floor went on to remain in newer versions of Cessna jets, like the Citation Longitude.

The Citation Latitude went on to become one of Cessna’s best-selling jets - and one of the world’s best-selling - and a popular one for companies to purchase pre-owned to add to their fleets thanks to its passenger comfort and endurance. It was produced for the 2016 to 2020 model years and remains an impressive business jet.
