The private jet market has expanded greatly in recent years to include a wide variety of brands and styles. It may be difficult to choose an appropriate aircraft for your diverse business and vacation travel needs. One tried and true series you may want to consider is the family of Midsize Cessna Citation Jets.
These aircraft have been in use as far back as 1980 and continue to perform quite well today. The midsize portion of this series includes the Citation III, Citation VI, Citation VII, Citation X, Citation Excel/XLS, Citation Sovereign, and the CJ4.
Groups with as many as twelve passengers can travel together in the largest of these jets, to destinations ranging from 2100 to 3500 miles away. The slowest of them – The CJ4 – can zip by at 500 mph, while the fastest – The Citation X – trumps that pace by over 100 mph making for a breathtaking speed of at least 600 mph.
The cabin dimensions, except that of length, are about the same for each of these aircraft – 5 ft. 7 in. high by 5 ft. 5 in. wide. The CJ4 is slightly smaller, about 4 ft. 9 in. by 4 ft. 10 in. In length, they vary from 17 ft. 4 in. on the CJ4 up to 25 ft. 3 in. on the Sovereign, which generates extra space for passengers or gear. As for baggage capacity, these aircraft offer anywhere from 60 cubic feet at the smallest up to 135 cubic feet on the Citation Sovereign.
While it is unlikely that just one of these jets can solve all your private aviation travel needs, perhaps some of the specifications mentioned sound like they may match up to one of your upcoming trips. Try taking a closer look by clicking on the “Mid Size Jets” link under the evoJets “Aircraft” drop-down menu to see if a Cessna Citation jet may be right for your next private flight.
