CESSNA CITATION HEMISPHERE
At the 2015 NBAA Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition in Las Vegas last November, Cessna announced its new business jet project, the Cessna Citation Hemisphere. The newest member of the Cessna family, slated to fly in 2019, has the business jet industry abuzz with anticipation.
The Cessna Citation Hemisphere will have a range of 8,300 km and a maximum speed of Mach 0.9, making nonstop between London and Dubai or from Brazil to Miami, as well as across the Atlantic, within easy reach in a short amount of time. The jet is powered by a pair of Snecma Silvercrest turbofans, both producing around 7,000 lb thrust each.
The Hemisphere will be the largest stand-upcabin business jet in Cessna’s Citation family. While many of the aircraft’s specs have yet to be released, we do know that it has a 102-inch wide cabin with a capacity for 12 passengers. It is in line with the trend toward larger planes that can hold a meeting table and better communications equipment, making air travel more like having an office in the sky. Cessna chose to actively seek customer feedback from the interactive cabin concept that it displayed at the NBAA, adopting all the suggestions that will help create the best passenger experience possible for those aboard what will be a real showpiece in the Cessna fleet. Textron Aviation is currently exploring options for avionics for the Hemisphere, and the aircraft will also feature a new wing.
The Hemisphere will be the largest in a Citation sub-family of stand-up-cabin business jets that also includes the Latitude, which achieved FAA certification last June, and the Longitude, which was also given wide coverage at the Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition. “Over the last 20 years customers in this segment have seen little innovation or investment in new products as their business needs and mission requirements have continued to evolve. The Citation Hemisphere is designed to transform this segment, offering customers the latest technology available and the widest cabin in its class," Textron Aviation CEO Scott Ernest said at the event. Ernest added that development of the Hemisphere came from listening closely to customer feedback. The market is eagerly awaiting the Hemisphere’s arrival on the scene.
The cost of the aircraft is projected to be around $35 million.
