Cessna's long-running Citation line of business jets gained a new Super-Mid-size model in 2015 when the Citation Latitude began delivering to customers.
With speed and range to cover the United States and airport performance numbers that emphasize flexibility and access while providing the passengers with the work tools they need in-flight, the Cessna Citation Latitude jet has been a hit on the market since its introduction…
How much does a Cessna Citation Latitude cost?
The cost of a Citation Latitude depends on several factors, including the year of production, number of hours the aircraft has flown, flight cycles, avionics, the time remaining before any major overhauls and inspections are due, and the availability of other attractive models on the used aircraft market at any particular time.
AvBuyer Opinion: While still relatively new, the Latitude's longer-term potential and modern systems, performance and accessories will continue to appeal to buyers of models that flow into the pre-owned market going forwards.

A typical cabin configuration would incorporate a two-place divan opposite the entrance door, a club-four seating arrangement towards the front of the main cabin, and two forward-facing seats to the aft.
The aircraft also has a belted lavatory for a ninth passenger if needed. Two pilots are required to fly the Latitude.
There are 313 Cessna Citation Latitudes jets are in operation currently.
Since 2014, Cessna has built 332 Citation Latitude jets according to JETNET data, October 2022.

You can also search for dealers specializing in Cessna Citation jets. A good dealer/broker will enhance your understanding of the marketplace, including how the price of one jet compares with others available for sale, and ensuring you get the best value for money.
Yes, it is a good idea to charter a Citation Latitude before buying.
This will help you decide if it really is the right jet for you. You’ll be able to check how far you can go, how much baggage you can fit aboard, and how comfortable the aircraft is for a typical trip and passenger load.
There are two choices for renewing the hourly engine maintenance program coverage.
Pratt & Whitney Canada provides a coverage program for the Latitude's PW306D engines. Or a third-party hourly maintenance cost program provider such as JSSI may be your preference.
Regardless, buyers of used Citation Latitudes should seek aircraft already enrolled with a program. It’s also essential to understand what's covered under an existing program prior to purchasing the aircraft.
