Cessna has announced that the Latitude project is progressing according to the plan, with the first main body being completed the other day. Another 2 bodies are under construction. These bodies are intended for various ground tests, as well as the creation of a prototype for flight tests. Latitude is expected to make its first flight in early 2014.
The Latitude project was announced in 2011. The Citation Latitude is a super-mid-size jet and is expected to compete with its large 8-passenger cabin and attractive price. Estimated cost is $ 15 million.
