Textron Aviation will debut three of its newest business aircraft at EBACE 2022, which will be held May 23 to 25 in Geneva. Debuts for the Wichita-based aircraft manufacturer include the Cessna Citation CJ4 Gen2 and XLS Gen2 twinjets, and the Beechcraft King Air 360 twin turboprop.
The King Air 360 was announced in August 2020 and type certified two months later. In February 2021, the CJ4 Gen2 was unveiled, receiving current interior certification under its Model 525C FAA type certificate. And the XLS Gen2 was introduced in October at NBAA-BACE, followed by FAA certification earlier this month.
Also, on static display at EBACE will be the airframer’s Citation Longitude and Latitude super-midsize and midsize jets. All of Textron's aircraft will fly to EBACE on sustainable aviation fuel, the OEM noted. Products and services from the company’s aftermarket division will be highlighted at its booth in the Palexpo Convention Center.
According to the company, there are more than 1,800 Citations and King Airs operating throughout the European region.
