LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Textron Aviation, an industry leader in bringing new products and product updates to market, today announced the next generation Cessna Citation M2 Gen2 and Cessna Citation XLS Gen2 business jets. The new updates to the entry-level lightjet and midsize business jets bring in the next generation of aircraft design, technology, and comfort for both pilots and passengers.

The Cessna Citation business jet family is designed and manufactured by Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company.

“With a belief that every detail matters when creating customer flight experiences, the Citation M2 Gen2 (and Citation XLS Gen2 (both) were created by Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc.(NYSE:TXT), senior vice president, Customer Experience.” Christi Tannahill stated, “With the mindset of no detail being too small when shaping customer flights experiences, we’ve touched every area of the cargo area and everything in between,” she said. These aircraft upgrades are based on extensive customer feedback. These new models represent a significant commitment from Textron Aviation as we continue to bring best-in-class performance and features to our customers.”

The company is now taking orders for both new models with deliveries expected to begin by the end of first quarter 2022 for the Citation M2 Gen2 and second quarter 2022 for the Citation XLS Gen2. During the event, attendees of NBAA-BACE will be able to see the new Gen2 interior mockups at Textron Aviation’s stand at Henderson Executive Airport.

Citation M2 Gen2

The latest updates to the Citation M2 platform strengthen the model’s focus on pilot and passenger comfort as well as productivity. The M2 Gen2 is a thoughtfully designed aircraft. It features premium interior styling, ambient accent lighting, and additional in-flight storage.

The latest technology has been added to the cabin, including wireless charging capabilities and USB A ports at every seat. For greater comfort, the cockpit has three inches more legroom for the co-pilot position. For durability and maintenance, the cabin entry threshold materials were improved.

“Since the Citation M2 was first introduced in 2013, it has quickly become one of our most popular light jet models – in particular with owner/operator customers,” Tannahill added. “The M2 Gen2 builds on its already exceptional performance capabilities and flexibility. It brings the latest cabin amenities, as well as technological advances, to the entry-level lightjet segment. Passengers will appreciate the USB-A ports at every cabin seat and the USB-C ports in the club area.”

Citation XLS Gen2

Walking up to the Citation XLS Gen2, customers and pilots will immediately notice the elevated ramp presence with the new lighted airstair door. For inclement weather protection and improved cabin acoustics during flight, a new entry curtain was added. Customers will feel at home once they board the plane, with natural lighting and exquisite styling and materials. The new pedestal seat design improves passenger comfort with individual controls and optional quilting. The forward couch has an optional fold-down capability that allows passengers to access their baggage during flight.

The XLS Gen2 features a state of the art intuitive wireless cabin management system. This includes a touchscreen moving map display, wireless charging ports at each seat, and an optional Bongiovi Immersive speakerless sound system.

“The 560XL series is the best-selling midsize business jet family of the 21st century, and the customer-influenced updates we’ve made will ensure the next generation retains that title,” Tannahill said. “Like its predecessors, the XLS Gen2 hits the sweet spot of offering the features, amenities and comfort of a midsize jet, but with lower operating costs.”

With more than 1,000 560XLs delivered throughout the past 25 years, fractional owners and charter operators consistently choose the Cessna Citation 560XL series for its unparalleled combination of performance, comfort, ease of operation, range of mission capabilities and favorable operating efficiencies.
