Cessna Aircraft’s citation latitude mid-size business jet.

HUNTSVILLE, US: PPG Industries’ aerospace transparencies group has been awarded a contract by Cessna Aircraft Company to supply production and spare windshields and side cockpit windows for the new citation latitude mid-size business jet. “Because of the width of the cockpit on the citation latitude, these will be the largest transparencies PPG supplies to Cessna. We appreciate the confidence Cessna has shown in PPG’s ability to meet the associated technical challenges,” said Arthur Scott, Global Director for general-aviation transparencies products, PPG.

PPG will design and manufacture main windshields and side cockpit windows for the citation latitude jet at its Huntsville, US transparencies facility. The heated windshields and side cockpit windows will be made of HERCULITE(R) II chemically strengthened glass by PPG to be strong and lightweight. They will be designed to resist impact by a 4-pound bird at 305 knots. The main windshields will have SURFACE SEAL(R) coating for water shedding without the need for wipers as well as an antistatic coating.
