Cessna Citation XLS Gen2

Textron Aviation has announced it has achieved the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certification for its Cessna Citation XLS Gen2 business jet.

The company delivered the first customer aircraft to a long-time Citation operator in the Midwest last week.

“Loyal Citation customers inspire us to continually invest in bringing the latest design and technology to our product line,” said Lannie O’Bannion, Senior Vice President, Sales and Flight Ops. “This fresh approach to our popular 560XL series includes comfort and productivity upgrades requested by our customers, yet retains the model’s combination of performance and efficiencies that offers midsize jet features at a smaller jet operating cost.”

Textron Aviation says its Cessna Citation XLS Gen2 is the latest model of the Citation 560XL midsize business jet series, which began with the introduction of the Citation Excel in 1998. More than 1,000 560XLs have been delivered over the past 25 years.
