200th Citation Latitude Rolls Off Cessna Line

Textron Aviation has produced its 200th Cessna Citation Latitude midsize jet and recently marked the milestone with its employees at a ceremony at the company’s Wichita plant.  Fractional aircraft provider NetJets will take delivery of this milestone midsize jet later this year.

The model has led Textron Aviation’s Citation jet deliveries for the past three years, and the Latitude fleet has accumulated more than 150,000 flight hours since its entry into service in third-quarter 2015. It has since been certified in 43 countries.
