Cessna Aircraft Co. has selected Honeywell to provide the most advanced environmental control systems, industry-leading LASEREF® navigation and state-of-the-art communications systems for the new Cessna Citation Latitude and Cessna Citation Longitude aircraft. The new business is expected to be worth up to $800 million over the life of the program and builds upon Honeywell’s existing 30-year relationship with Cessna.
Honeywell will provide the Latitude and Longitude aircraft with high-frequency radios, LASEREF VI inertial reference navigation systems, digital cabin pressure control and monitoring system, and the environmental control systems that will help further improve safety, flight navigation and passenger comfort on these long-range business jets. Honeywell will also provide its industry-leading RE100 auxiliary power unit (APU) for the Latitude, which delivers world-class reliability in a smaller size and weight class than alternative APUs.
“We’re excited to bring a new level of advanced avionics and aircraft management system technology to the Cessna Citation Latitude and Citation Longitude aircraft fleet. This latest generation of modern technologies will enable a higher level of safety, performance and comfort to be given to Latitude and Longitude operators,” said Rob Wilson, President of Business and General Aviation, Honeywell Aerospace. “In addition, our service agreement will enable Cessna operators to receive the best possible service and support for global operations.”
