The Cessna Citation Model 550, otherwise known as the Citation Bravo, uses the baseline airframe of the earlier Citation 2 light jet but has improved engines and fuel economy, thus ensuring higher speed and greater range.
The Citation Bravo also makes use of the highly valued “trailing link” main landing gear configuration that replaced the stiff landing gear common among early-build Cessna Citation business jets. Because of this feature, the Bravo is certified for landing at “steep approach” airports (in an effort to reduce the discomfort of people in nearby communities caused by the noise of passing jets). It also experiences none of the “jerky” landings that were also a hallmark of older Citation aircraft. Both passengers and crew are thus assured of smoother landings, especially during approaches made at low speed.
The Citation Bravo’s passenger cabin comfortably seats up to 8 people. The aircraft can carry a total cargo volume of approximately 74 cubic feet distributed among compartments. The compartments are also big enough to accommodate golf bags and skiing equipment—perfect for corporate travelers who also want to hit the fairways or the slopes in between business meetings far from home. To provide further comfort, the passenger cabin has been modified to drown out low frequency engine noise.
