Cessna Citation Ten program on track, new interior on display

Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, said today at the NBAA Annual Meeting and Convention the Citation Ten program is on track for first flight by year-end and deliveries are planned for the second half of 2013.

A mock-up of the Ten is featured at Cessna's booth #C9044 with a fresh new interior color scheme. Customers are able to choose the interior stylings that best fit their needs and personality. The mock-up also features a functioning Garmin G5000 avionics system as well as a preview of ClairityTM, Cessna's proprietary cabin technology solution.

"The Citation Ten mock-up with the new interior really showcases the broad range of designs we can offer to our customers, everything from bright and modern, to dark and traditional or anything in between," said Kelly Reich, business leader for the Cessna Citation X and Ten. "We are excited about getting the Ten certified and into service so we can take the world's fastest certified civil aircraft up a notch."

The Ten is a mid-size aircraft with updated design and performance, enabling it to get to altitude faster and travel farther than the Citation X (Model 750), the world's fastest certified business jet. First announced at the 2010 NBAA convention, the Citation Ten is designed for greater fuel efficiency and increased comfort for up to nine passengers and two pilots.

Two Rolls-Royce AE 3007C2 engines will take a 36,600 pound (16,601 kilogram) MTOW Citation Ten off the ground in 5,140 feet (1,567 meters) and give the aircraft a maximum cruise speed of 527 knots an hour (976 kilometers) and a certified ceiling of 51,000 feet (15,545 meters). The Ten has a maximum range of 3,245 nautical miles (6,010 kilometers), 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. Clairity, the cabin technology solution, 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 one of the most intuitive pilot-aircraft interfaces 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 virtual reality view of runways, terrain, traffic and obstacles. Electronic charts with aircraft position overlay provide dynamic situational awareness during approach.
