FARNBOROUGH, U.K., 11 July 2012. Cessna Aircraft has selected Crane Aerospace & Electronics, a segment of Crane Co. (NYSE:CR), to provide the brake control system for the new Citation Latitude mid-size business jet.

Preliminary specifications project the aircraft will operate at airports with runways as short as 3,900 feet (1,189 meters).

 “The Citation Latitude is a game-changer for the mid-size segment, offering the payload, speed and range the market requires with an unmatched cabin experience at this price point,” says Brad Thress, senior vice president, Cessna Business Jets.

First flight of the Citation Latitude prototype is expected to be mid-year 2014, with FAA certification (Part 25) and entry into service expected in 2015.

“Crane is pleased to extend its long-term relationship with Cessna. Our experience providing brake control systems on numerous Citation products will ensure we provide a system for the Latitude with optimum braking performance,” says David Bailey, vice president of Landing Systems Solutions for Crane Aerospace & Electronics.
