Textron Aviation delivered a Cessna Citation Longitude to Scotts Miracle-Gro, representing the 8,000th Cessna Citation jet delivery. Textron Aviation employees and representatives from Scotts Miracle-Gro celebrated this milestone with a special delivery ceremony at Textron Aviation’s headquarters in Wichita, KS.
“A milestone like this wouldn’t be possible without all the owners and operators who love to fly our aircraft and trust the reliability and versatility of our Citation products. With more than 41 million flight hours across the globe, our customers continue to make Citation jets their aircraft of choice,” Ron Draper, president and CEO of Textron Aviation, said. “I also want to thank our extraordinary workforce. Each and every one of you played a part in reaching the 8,000th Citation delivery.”
Scotts Miracle-Gro is a marketer of branded consumer products for lawn and garden care. The new aircraft is the fifth Cessna Citation in the company’s fleet.
“The Citation is one of the most functional and reliable brands in the general aviation industry and I, along with the members of our flight department, congratulate Textron Aviation on the delivery of its 8,000 Citation aircraft,” Jim Hagedorn, CEO of Scotts Miracle-Gro, a personal owner of the Citation CJ4 and a former U.S. Air Force F-16 pilot, said. “Reaching this milestone is a credit to the Cessna brand, which represents quality, design and attention to the entire flying experience — all things we were looking for as we add to our fleet of business jets.”
