NetJets Europe has unveiled its first Cessna Citation Latitude demonstrator aircraft.
According to Mark Wilson, president of NetJets Europe, “NetJets was announced as the largest customer for the Citation Latitude back in 2012. We now have 25 firm orders planned and an additional 125 optional orders available. These deliveries cement our position as a market leader in fractional ownership business aviation and reinforce our commitment to continue investing for our clients. In addition to the demonstrator aircraft, NetJets Europe will receive three aircraft later this year.”He added, “The Citation Latitude is a mid-size aircraft but with the amenities of a large cabin jet. All of the materials you see on-board the aircraft are hand-selected by our design team – from the ergonomically designed seating through to the high gloss wood veneers and cooled catering storage. This is complemented by a wide range of state-of-the-art on-board technology further setting us apart from the competition. The aircraft is equipped with Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband, a Satellite based Wi-Fi system accessible across the globe, while a new cabin pressurisation system delivers a cabin altitude of less than 6,000ft (1,828m) at cruising altitude. Additionally, our Latitude will have an in-flight entertainment system manufactured by Gogo, which orchestrates, manages & delivers in-flight data, entertainment & cabin management. Owners will be able to access an entire library of content via iPads on board or via their own device by using the specific NetJets Entertainment app.”
