The Citation Ultra’s design was more focused on improving the cabin.

The Citation Ultra also featured recessed tables and a full refreshment center.

Citation Ultra Performance

Cruise Speed

Pratt & Whitney Canada JT15D-5D provide plenty of power for the versatile Citation Ultra. One of the major upgrades of the Ultra is its short takeoff distance. In optimal runway conditions, the Ultra can take off with 3,200 feet of runway space and a full load. With long range capabilities for a light jet and relatively high cruise altitude and speed, the Ultra is a great plane for trips in the 4hr neighborhood.
