The Latitude is a midsize jet seating up to 9 with two standard cabin configurations, one featuring a club of four with two additional forward facing seats, a cabin-forward bench for two and a rear belted lavatory. The aircraft fits between the XLS and the Sovereign in the Citation line up and the Latitude carries an outward resemblance of both. It is described as a superior, flat-floor, stand-up cabin, 6 feet tall, 77 inches wide and 21 feet long. the Latitude cabin is taller and wider than the Sovereign. Airspeed at 446 kts max cruise is similar to the Sovereign and XLS.
Another Coast-to-Coast Mid?
The Latitude offers a range of up to 2,850 NM. The Hawker 800XP, one of the most popular midsize charter jets known for coast-to-coast charter non-stops, has a published max range of 2,540 NM. It is likely a new midsize jet will be available for transcontinental non-stops this coming winter as deliveries continue.
When the coast-to-coast nonstop charter capability becomes reality, the Latitude should be a hot commodity in the midsize charter market.
