This order will boost Thrive’s fleet of Textron Aviation aircraft to 15, comprised of Cessna Citation Longitude, Cessna Citation Sovereign+, Cessna Citation XLS+, Cessna Citation CJ3+ and Cessna Citation M2.

The super-midsize Citation Longitude is the flagship of the Cessna Citation family of business jets and is designed and manufactured by Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company.

Lannie O’Bannion (senior vice president, Global Sales and Flight Operations at Textron Aviation) said that it was rewarding to see Thrive Aviation grow its capabilities within the Citation Family. “Our relationship with Thrive is growing. “Our relationship with Thrive continues to grow.” “With the addition of three more Longitudes to our fleet, we’re better equipped to serve our growing demand nationwide; an expanding footprint that is a testament to our momentum and our future.”

“The private aviation landscape has changed during the past 18 months – we’re confident the expanded fleet of Citation Longitudes is exactly what our customers want and expect,” said Thrive Aviation CEO Curtis Edenfield. “Thrive Aviation has bright future and we are grateful to the Textron Aviation team. They’ve been an integral part of our continued success up to this point.”

About the Cessna Citation Longitude

With a range of 3,500 nautical miles (6,482 kilometers) and full fuel payload of 1,600 pounds (726 kilograms), the Citation Longitude is designed to elevate passenger expectations in the super-midsize class by delivering the quietest cabin, a low cabin altitude (5,950 feet/1,814 meters), more standard features and a comfortable, bespoke interior. With seating for up to 12 passengers, including an optional crew jump seat, the Longitude features a stand-up, 6-foot tall flat-floor cabin. The standard double-club configuration offers the most legroom in this super-midsize class. The seats can be fully berthable and are manufactured in-house. A spacious, walk-in bag compartment is available throughout the flight. The latest cabin technology allows passengers to control their environment and entertainment via any mobile device.

Longitude’s clean design integrates the most recent technology throughout the aircraft. This ensures that customers have the lowest operating costs in their class. Powered by FADEC-equipped Honeywell HTF7700L turbofan engines featuring fully integrated autothrottles with envelope protection, the Longitude offers best in class maintenance intervals of 800 hr/18 months. Textron Aviation supports it with its maintenance and advanced real time diagnostic systems (AReS), with LinxUs software.

This spacious cockpit is easier to access and has an ergonomic design that focuses on comfort and efficiency. The super-midsize business jet has the most range, payload and cruise speed of any other super-midsize aircraft. It also offers a lower operating cost thanks to the global network’s largest service centers.
