NetJets will receive the milestone plane soon this week.
Textron Aviation announced this week in NBAA-BACE the 100th installment of the Cessna Citation Latitude.
It has been almost two years since NetJets received a Cessna Citation Latitude, which the fractional business jet company used as a demonstration to test the capabilities and potential of the aircraft to customers in the United States. In June 2016, NetJets received the first Latitude on an order of 25 bizjets – business cards – initially with an option to buy an additional 125, but the order was later expanded to 200.
Conveniently Textron Aviation announced this week at NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas that NetJets will soon be the recipient of the 100th Latitude delivery.
“We set out to redefine this segment by investing in a new product with characteristics that our clients told us they wanted: large cabin services and the best operating costs of its kind.” The delivery of 100 Latitudes in just over two years is a testimony that we have the ideal formula, “said Rob Scholl, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Textron Aviation. “There is no better endorsement than the fact that our NetJets customer has long pointed him out as the best-selling aircraft in his fleet.”
With 42 shipments, the Latitude was the best-selling mid-size jet of 2016, and it is undoubtedly a preferred aircraft for NetJets customers.
“Latitude is one of the most prominent mid-cabin aircraft in the industry, meeting our high performance and safety standards and that of our customers,” said Doug Henneberry, executive vice president, Aircraft Asset Management, NetJets, Inc. We are proud to have Latitudes in our fleet and we are excited to celebrate this delivery of milestones with our industry partner. ”
NetJets will receive Latitude later this week at Textron’s headquarters in Wichita, Kansas.
