WICHITA, Kan. (May 21, 2015) – Cessna Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, today announced certification by Brazil’s Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil of the Citation CJ3+, one of the newest models in Cessna’s stable of next-generation Citation business jets.

“The range, performance and economics of the Citation CJ3+ make it a natural fit for operations in Brazil, a country that has long been one of Cessna’s largest markets,” said Bob Gibbs, vice president, Sales. “The Citation CJ3+ represents the latest, proven technology in terms of avionics and cabin productivity and carries on the brand promise expected from the Cessna name.”

The range of the Citation CJ3+, at 3,778 kilometers (2,040 nautical miles), gives operators non-stop reach from São Paulo to Manaus or Santiago and from Manaus to Managua, Nicaragua. With a required take-off distance of only 969 meters (3,180 feet), the Citation CJ3+ has access to airports unavailable to larger competitor aircraft. Requiring only 27 minutes to climb direct to 13,716 meters (45,000 feet), it quickly gets above weather and other traffic.

The Citation CJ3+ gained initial certification from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration in September, less than six months after its market introduction in March 2014. Cessna has introduced four new Citations into the market in the last 18 months, contributing to Cessna’s strong business jet delivery performance in 2014.
