History of Citation III

Citation III is the third-generation version of the Citation first introduced in 1983. This model can seat up to nine passengers, and Cessna continued to build this aircraft for the next decade. A stretch variant of Citation III was slated for later production but did not materialize. Instead, Cessna focused on increasing its performance and boosting its thrust engines. It also added additional features, such as an optionally-available RVSM kit.

Citation Interior

Citation III is a fast jet designed to reach its destinations quickly. It also has a high-end cabin that can accommodate up to nine passengers. Citation III’s cabin features a spacious, fully enclosed lavatory. It has a sizeable 60-cubic-foot baggage compartment, and a door on the left side allows easy access for passengers. Its avionics suite included a Sperry/Honeywell SPZ-650 integrated flight director/autopilot, Collins Pro Line II radios, and Honeywell Primus 300L radar.
Citation III was the first aircraft of the model 650 series. They were designed for maximum speed with lightweight composites, smooth surfaces, and a T-Tail. Its performance also made it the fastest aircraft of its class. It also set records flying from Gander, Newfoundland, to Paris, France, a distance of 2,054 nautical miles.

Cessna TwinJets

The Citation III was the first mid-size business twinjet and marked a significant step forward for the Cessna Citation line. Its swept supercritical wing and T-tail combined with two Honeywell TFE731-3B-100S turbofans gave it an impressive speed.
