About Cessna Citation Jets 

The Cessna Citation Jet family comprises a wide range of jets designed for business travel. The first Citation aircraft entered service in 1972, and the company has delivered over 8,000 of them. The fleet is one of the largest in the business jet market. The CitationJet family of business aircraft has an unmatched track record and is a favorite of charter operators. Its versatility, performance, and efficiency make it a perfect choice for business travel. 

The Citation Jet is easy to fly and ideal for business travelers who want speed, style, and comfort. It has easy-to-use avionics and automated systems that help make flying the aircraft an easy task. The aircraft family also offers a wide range of upgrade options.

Small Cabin Business Jets

The Cessna Citation Jet family offers a variety of private jet models. The smallest, Cessna Citation CJ4, was delivered in 2010 and was intended for short and medium-haul flights. The Citation Latitude is a mid-jet designed to be operated by two pilots and can carry up to nine passengers. It features a circular fuselage, Honeywell HTF-7000 turbofan engines, and cross-country ranges. 

Unlike previous Citations, the new Cessna Citation Jet has a broader interior with wide cushions and plenty of shoulder room. Its redesigned tail section also accommodates more bags and provides easy access to pre-flight items. 

Midsize Jets

Citation III is a shortened, updated version of Citation II, which flew for the first time in May 1976. Designed initially as a three-engine trijet, it was later changed to a twin-engine configuration. Citation III was certified in April 1982 and was intended to extend the Citation’s transatlantic range. Although it did not reach that, it added around 600 miles to Citation II’s range.

The Citation Jet’s upgraded flight deck is equipped with advanced Garmin avionics. The G5000 avionics suite has touchscreen controllers, a large lateral display, and dimensional terrain renderings. The primary flight display features Garmin Synthetic Vision Technology. A large color screen complements the flight deck’s display, and its window offers an expansive view of the outside environment.

The Cessna Citation Jet family are flexible aircraft that can reach remote airports. Their small size and maneuverability make them ideal for business travel and feature superior single-engine performance.
