Cessna displays enhanced Citation X at EBACE

Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, is displaying its latest version of the Citation X this week at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibit before beginning a European demonstration tour. The Citation X on display features the newly certified Honeywell Primus Elite avionics suite, new cabin management system and winglets.

The enhancements, announced in mid-2010, are now standard and available as an optional service bulletin upgrade through the Cessna Citation Service Center network for in-service Citation Xs.

The five-panel Elite system is based on the Citation X's current Honeywell Primus 2000 system. Primus Elite features liquid crystal displays offering high-resolution graphics display capability for electronic approach charts with aircraft position worldwide as well as XM satellite weather in the United States and southern Canada. In addition, improved moving map capability will depict geographical and political boundaries as well as airspace and airways. LCD technology also provides greater reliability and longer service life than previous displays.

Improvements to the proprietary cabin management system, also included as a standard feature for 2011 deliveries, include touch-screen control panels, MP3 player inputs, an improved stereo sound system optimized for the Citation X cabin, updated Airshow display imagery and dual Blu-ray players with a high-definition display monitor mounted in the forward closet.

Cessna is offering Aircell's high-speed Internet system as an option this year for U.S. access and adding a European system as an option in 2012.

At the conclusion of EBACE, the Citation X will begin a two-week demonstration tour with scheduled stops throughout Europe and Africa. The Citation X is the fastest certified business jet in the world, with time and cost efficiency as its most important benefits. Normally configured for eight passengers, the Citation X has a range of more than 5,686 kilometers (3,000 nautical miles) and flies as high as 15,545 meters (51,000 feet), well above most weather systems and other aircraft traffic for a smoother, more efficient flight profile.
