Cessna Citation Latitude and Longitude to Offer New Advanced Avionics Features



Textron Aviation, a Textron company, released advanced Garmin G5000 avionics enhancements, coming soon to the Cessna Citation Latitude and the Cessna Citation Longitude. Textron Aviation’s investments in the popular business jets, based on customer feedback, will offer greater performance and improved user experience to pilots in the new Latitude jets beginning in 2025 and the new Longitude jets in 2026.

“Citation jets offer customers performance, productivity and profitability that opens a new world of possibility in aviation and their business,” Lannie O’Bannion, senior vice president of global sales and flight operations, said. “These enhancements demonstrate our commitment to continuously invest in our legendary products in order to design and deliver the best aviation experience for our customers.”

When equipped with the latest Garmin G5000 avionics suite, the Latitude and Longitude will feature an array of new advanced features and technology from Garmin, including Synthetic Vision Guidance System (SVGS) shown on the primary flight displays coupled with Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) to support approach minima as low as 150 ft (46 m).

SVT enhancements include a 3D exocentric view of the SafeTaxi airport environment. SVT also displays 3D building footprints including hangars, terminals and towers, taxiways, aprons, signs and other markings to help reduce runway incursions. SVT integrates with the new Taxiway Routing feature.

The Latitude and Longitude can utilize the standard ADS-B In capability for Cockpit Display of Traffic Information (CDTI) Assisted Visual Separation (CAVS). CAVS increases pilots’ traffic awareness and assists pilots in maintaining separation from preceding aircraft equipped with ADS-B out during visual approaches to landing. SURF IA also utilizes ADS-B data to provide alerts when attempting a takeoff or landing on an occupied runway.

For qualifying regions, the GDL 60 Datalink offers high-bandwidth data exchange and connectivity options. The GDL 60 features the ability to complete automatic wireless database downloads over network connections while the aircraft is powered off. Additionally, enhancements to the GDL 69A allow the Garmin G5000 suite to access more SiriusXM Weather products.
