The Cessna Citation Sovereign is a mid-size business jet designed for transcontinental and transoceanic flight. That puts the aircraft in the same league as larger airliners though it retains the low operating cost highly favored by even the most discerning corporate travelers.
The Sovereign’s passenger cabin can accommodate up to 12 passengers, and the 100-cubic-foot baggage compartment is considered adequate for an aircraft its size. However, performance is the area wherein this aircraft really gives the competition a run for their money.
The Citation Sovereign is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW306C turbofan engines that, in addition to producing minimal noise, can easily take the aircraft from Los Angeles to Hawaii in just under 4 hours and 30 minutes. Take off distance is 4,000 feet—much shorter than those of other mid-size business jets. Also, the cruising speed of 458 knots is high for a mid-size jet and more typical of a commercial airliner.
Even with these impressive performance figures, the Sovereign remains easy to fly thanks to its uncomplicated onboard systems. Also, like all newer members of the commercially successful Cessna Citation family of business jets, the Sovereign is equipped with trailing link landing gear to make landings less bumpy.
With its combination of just the right amounts of performance, range, carrying capacity, comfort, and handling, the Citation Sovereign may very well give a whole new meaning to the term “business jet.”
