Designed as a complementary program to the Eagle, the Citation Longwing Modification adds Wingtip Extensions to the basic Citation, serial numbers 500-0001 through 500-0349. From wheels up to touchdown, every facet fo your Citation's performance is enhanced.
The performance benefits of the Citation Longwing installation are tremendous, affording capability comparable to a factory new Citation I. These benefits include:
Improved field performance
Lower reference landing speeds
Improved initial cruise altitude
Improved climb performance
Increased fuel capacity
Up to 42% reduction in Balanced Field Length allows the Citation Longwing safe takeoff from austere airports even on hot days without excessive payload or fuel restrictions.
Up to 50% reduction in time to climb means lower community noise level and less fuel burned to attain cruise altitude with the Citation longwing.
Long range or short hop, the Citation Longwing reaches cruise altitudes sooner with its wing aspect ratio of 8.5 to 1.
The excellent fuel economy and increased fuel capacity of the Citation Longwing, combined with up to 50% reduction in time to reach altitude, results in a substantial increase in range, with fewer refueling stops, further enhanced by its ability to cruise at 41,000 feet in comfort above the weather.
The increased aerodynamic efficiency provided by 37 inches additional wingspan plus increased fuel capacity, and the faster climb characteristics of the Citation Longwing afford up to 10% increase in range, bringing additional destinations within your reach.
The excellent decent characteristics of the basic Citation remain unchanged. With the total performance improvement of the Citation Longwing, you will be on final approach, while basic Citations completing comparable missions are still enroute.
Safer, smoother landings at greatly reduced approach speeds with easier flare are characteristic of the Citation Longwing.
Pilot workload is the highest during the final minutes of a flight, when critical decisions must be made which are a function of aircraft speed. The Citation Longwing speed reduction in landing configuration gives the pilot an extra margin of safety...TIME.
With the reduced landing speed of the Citation Longwing the pilot has more time to correct for adverse situations, should they occur.
Improved take-off and climb performance makes the quietest of business jets even quieter.
With up to 42% reduction in balanced field length, over 1500 additional airports are opened up for your use. This brings new markets and established customers within your business jet's operational capabilities.
REDUCED LANDING SPEEDS
The Citation Longwing provides a generous landing speed reduction over the basic Citation. This lower approach speed provides better landing control, with more positive flare and reduced floating tendencies.
With the reduced takeoff and approach speeds of the Citation Longwing, the pilot has the advantage of greater maneuverability in close situations around the field. Tighter turning capability and improved rate of climb greatly enhance the pilot's ability to avoid unwanted situations.
The added fuel capacity provided by the wingtip extensions (120 lbs. in Models 500-0001 through 500-0213) and the greater fuel efficiency in the climb increase the range by approximately 10%.
Reduced drag and increased altitude capability provide up to 15% fuel savings over the basic Citation 500.
Fewer time-consuming refueling stops gives you superior operating efficiency with your Citation Longwing
It is no secret that long-winged aircraft are in demand today. If you've looked at a new Citation I price tag lately you've had that fact confirmed. The reason is simple. The longer-winged models are, in all important aspects, superior in performance to their shorter-winged counterparts.
A Citation has always been a good investment, but the Longwing Modification on your Citation is even a better one.
