Textron Aviation Inc. is showcasing its latest product investments at the Latin American Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (LABACE) this week in São Paulo, Brazil with the regional debut of the company’s newest super-midsize business jet under development – the Cessna Citation Longitude.

“The Citation Longitude is a revolutionary step forward for the super-midsize business jet segment, and LABACE attendees are sure to be impressed with the aircraft’s spacious cabin boasting best-in-class legroom and commanding performance capabilities with a 3,500-nautical mile range,” said Lannie O’Bannion, vice president, Sales for Latin America, Middle East and Africa.

“The Longitude delivers an ideal mission profile for flying regionally or for longer international trips allowing operators to move their businesses forward.”

The company is also highlighting the breadth of its product portfolio through its Cessna Citation Latitude, Cessna Citation CJ3+, Cessna Citation M2, Beechcraft King Air 350i, Beechcraft King Air C90GTx, Cessna Grand Caravan EX and Beechcraft Baron G58 aircraft on display.

“Textron Aviation continuously invests in both its aircraft platforms and support network. That spirit of innovation can easily be experienced through the products on display – all of which have seen investment throughout the last three years,” O’Bannion said.

Alongside the company’s new product investments, Textron Aviation is actively expanding its service and support footprint throughout Latin America.

In addition to the six in-region Textron Aviation field service engineers delivering on-demand support, the company has increased its regional parts inventory to expedite parts delivery to customers and enhance support in AOG events.

Textron Aviation also works with regional channel partners TAM Aviação Executiva (TAM) and Central Charter de Colombia (Central Charter) to deliver AOG support tailored to meet the unique needs of customers throughout the region.
