Cessna Citation Sovereign
The Citation Sovereign is Cessna’s version of what a business jet should be: comfortable, high-performing, and economical. The strongest feature of the Sovereign is its range; it has coast-to-coast capabilities, like large jets, but still retains the features that make midsize private jets so advantageous. It can take off in under 4,000 feet, a feat still unmatched by other midsized jets, and can cruise at around .75 Mach (458 knots).
The internal closet is large enough to hold full-sized garment bags. The bathroom, too, is spacious – passengers can change their clothes in it with the assurance of complete privacy (due to the double-sliding hard doors). The lighting system in place has dimmable LEDs.
The cabin and cockpit can be cooled before starting the engines by using APU.
Appointed in light grey or cream leather, the Citation Sovereign is set out with a double club style seating arrangement.
Offering the largest baggage compartment in the mid-size class, this particular aircraft also has an on-board bathroom, refreshment centre and can be chartered with a flight attendant.
Cessna Aircraft Company was an American general aviation aircraft manufacturing corporation headquartered in Wichita, Kansas. Best known for small, piston-powered aircraft, Cessna also produced business jets. For many years the company was one of the highest-volume producers of general aviation aircraft in the world.
Founded in 1927, it was purchased by General Dynamics in 1985, then by Textron, Inc. in 1992. In March 2014, when Textron purchased the Beechcraft and Hawker Aircraft Businesses, Cessna ceased operations as a subsidiary company and joined the others as one of the three distinct brands produced by Textron Aviation.
