Citation I Overview
Cessna first created its Citation I in the 1970s (originally called the Citation 500) to compete against smaller jets which could land on shorter runways. It used turbofan engines instead of louder turboprops.
Citation I Interior
The Citation I S/P was also developed in order to give the model the ability to carry an extra passenger in the cockpit with just one pilot. The cabin of both versions is designed for six passengers and also contains a lavatory and a small refreshment center.
Citation I Performance
The Cessna Citation I has since been developed into several generations of light jets recognized across the market for their economical high performance. Throughout its lifetime Cessna made improvements to the Citation I including higher weight capacity, thrust reversers for landing in shorter airfields, longer wings, and modernized avionics.
