  1. Record Textron Aviation Order From NetJets
    Textron Aviation has announced that it signed a record-deal with fractional-ownership powerhouse NetJets. NetJets are accustomed to making massive orders typically for 100 to 150 planes or more at a time. However, the company has struck a deal with Textron Aviation for as many as 1,500 jets. Of course the delivery time frame will be long, 15 or more years to satisfy. What aircraft NetJets are acquiring from Textron? More Citation Latitudes, Longitudes and the brand new Citation Ascend.
  2. The Citation Ascend is expected to enter service in 2025 after type certification and NetJets will servce as the launch customer for this new jet. If you remember the Citation Ascend was announced at the NBAA European Business Aviation Convention and Expo back in May of this year. NetJets has a longstanding relationship with Textron Aviation (Cessna) that goes back 40 years.
  3. "NetJets customers around the world continually select Citations as their aircraft of choice," said Ron Draper, president and CEO, Textron Aviation. "We’re honored to be the largest provider of industry-leading aircraft to NetJets and look forward to continuing to work together to design and deliver the best aviation experience based on customer feedback. Expanding and adding the Citation Ascend to the NetJets fleet will provide its global customers with even more versatility and flexibility to accomplish their missions, building upon the exceptional performance and popularity of the Latitude and Longitude."
