Rockwell Collins flight controls to be featured on Cessna Citation Longitude

Rockwell Collins today announced that its horizontal stabilizer trim and flap actuation systems will be featured on the new Cessna Citation Longitude super-midsize business jet. These proven and reliable flight control systems enable the aircraft to maneuver while in flight.

“Cessna needed a flight controls provider that could deliver on the Longitude's relatively short development schedule, and we were able to bring a low-risk solution that met their needs,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Flight Controls and Information Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Rockwell Collins has extensive experience in designing, developing and delivering high-integrity flight control systems in line with key program milestones on a wide range of business and commercial air transport aircraft.”

Rockwell Collins' horizontal stabilizer trim actuator controls the pitch of the horizontal stabilizer in order to reduce drag and trim the aircraft for optimal efficient flight. Its dual-load-path design provides two independent attachment points between the horizontal stabilizer and the airframe for added safety.

The flap actuator system from Rockwell Collins extends and retracts the trailing-edge flap system, which is used to increase lift during slow flight.
