Garmin 5000, autothrottles, more powerful engines, higher MTOW, payload, and range. Flat cabin floor at the expense of some headroom.

This will compliment the praetor 500 nicely with a QS tail.

It's almost the same price as a latitude. The asc end, a plane for management pilots. Cessna couldn't make a hemisphere so they settled for a semisphere.

By the time the five senses team does their usual interior hatchet job itíll be twice as much as a latitude, hauling half as much, not quite as fast.

Perfect.
