Cessna Citation Ten to make first flight by year-end

Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, today announced the Citation Ten is scheduled to make its first flight by year-end 2011, with first deliveries planned for the second half of 2013.

The Ten is a mid-size aircraft with uprated design and performance, enabling it to fly higher, faster and further than the existing Citation X (Model 750), the world's fastest certified business jet. First announced at the 2010 National Business Aviation Association convention, the Citation Ten is designed for greater fuel efficiency and increased comfort for up to nine passengers and two pilots.

The two Rolls-Royce AE 3007C2 engines will take a 16,601 kilogram (36,600 pound) MTOW Citation Ten off the ground in 1,567 meters (5,140 feet) and give the aircraft a maximum cruise speed of 976 kilometers an hour (527 knots) and a certified ceiling of 15,545 meters (51,000 feet). The Ten has a maximum range of 6,010 kilometers (3,245 nautical miles), putting city pairings such as New York-London, Boston-San Francisco, London-Dubai and Miami-Seattle within convenient one-hop flights.

The Ten is 15 inches longer than the Citation X, providing extra passenger legroom in the forward club seating area. The cabin management system delivers ultimate touch-screen control to the passenger, maximizing the digital entertainment experience from web to movies to moving maps. One convenient panel at each seat provides connections for personal electronic devices.

The Garmin G5000 integrated flight deck is the most intuitive pilot-aircraft interface ever seen in a business avionics suite. The high-resolution multi-function displays have split-screen capability, allowing continuous monitoring of engine, flight control, hydraulic and electrical systems. Garmin's SVT synthetic vision technology on the primary flight displays gives the crew a total virtual reality view of runways, terrain, traffic and obstacles. Electronic charts with aircraft position overlay provide dynamic situational awareness during approach.
