When Cessna decided to update its best-selling private jet, the Citation II, the result was the fuel-efficient Citation Bravo. It has a long range compared to other light-sized private jets and excellent short runway capabilities, allowing its owner to choose from a large selection of small airports. Some examples of non-stop flights include New York to Miami, Los Angeles to San Francisco, and Aspen to Southern California.
When Cessna redesigned their popular CJ1 private jet, known for its low operating costs and high performance, the result was the CJ2: bigger, faster, and better. The cabin stretches an additional thirty-three inches, the wingspan stretches an additional thirty-five. Its cruise speed outdoes the CJ by thirty knots with a significantly reduced fuel burn.
The CJ3 is the sixth generation of the popular Citation Jet series, a class of private jets designed to be economical and high-performing. They aren’t the most luxurious private jets available, but they may be the most popular. Business travelers like the idea of a private jet that understands bottom-line thinking, without sacrificing performance or reliability. How does Cessna manage to create private jets with competitive capabilities and still keep costs down? Simplicity.
The Citation Encore is another of Cessna’s great private jets. The Encore is versatile, able to fly long distances and take off and land on short runways and carry a large load. Passengers love their cabin comfort, smooth flight performance, and its low operating costs. The cabin, which can hold eight passengers in fully reclinable seats, stretches to seventeen feet, five inches – the longest cabin of any light private jet.
The strategic use of seamless wall panels, indirect lights, and mirrors make the cabin seem even more spacious. Passengers enjoy the cabins equipped with individual flat panel entertainment systems and audio jacks (an optional feature). The Ultra has storage space for twenty-six cubic feet of baggage, or about six hundred pounds worth of golf bags, suitcases, or whatever else worth bringing along.
The Cessna Citation V is a turbofan-powered small-to-medium sized business jet built by the Cessna Aircraft Company in Wichita, Kansas. The cabin pressurization system can hold a sea-level cabin to 23,580 feet, which is useful when flying at a high speed (425 knots/hour) cruise at 37,000 feet, or at a long range (350 knots/hour) cruise at the Citation V’s maximum certified flight ceiling of 45,000 feet. Takeoff distances are fairly short. At sea level, the Citation V can take off in 3,160 feet.
The Hawker 400 is a small twin-engine jet corporate aircraft. Initially designed and built by Mitsubishi, it has been further developed and updated by the Beech Aircraft Company, now part of Hawker Beechcraft.The cabin has a flat floor and an oval shape, maximizing the amount of usable space. The true strengths of this jet emerge when it’s in the air. It boasts a cruise speed of over four hundred knots and uses the fuel-efficient Pratt & Whitney JT15D-5 turbofan engines.
The Learjet 35 is known, above all, for its range. It can fly 2,056 miles nonstop. The Learjet 35 offers more than range: it has good handling characteristics, a low fuel burn, and fast cruise speeds as well.A maximum of eight passengers can travel in the Learjet 35’s cabin. It is 12.9 feet long, 4.9 feet wide and 4.3 feet high. There are 40 cubic feet of baggage space, enough to hold about eight standard-sized suitcases.The real strength of the Learjet 35 is its range, takeoff, and cruise capabilities.
