Design and development

The project was announced in May 2012. It was perceived as the follow-on development to the now-canceled Cessna Citation Columbus. Its fuselage cross-section (83.25 inch circular section) is the same as the Cessna Citation Latitude. Cessna projected that first delivery would occur in late 2017. The aircraft will have a T-tail empennage, area-rule fuselage contouring, and 30° wing sweep. The engines will be the new Snecma Silvercrest turbofan, rated at 11,000 lb thrust for takeoff. The aluminum wings will incorporate moderate winglets. Construction will be aluminum for both wing and fuselage.[2]

The fuselage will be 7 inches shorter and 6 inches narrower than the Cessna Citation Columbus design.[3]
