The Citation Sovereign is Cessna’s version of what a business jet should be: comfortable, high-performing, and economical. The strongest feature of the Sovereign is its range; it has coast-to-coast capabilities, like large jets, but still retains the features that make midsize private jets so advantageous. It can take off in under 4,000 feet, a feat still unmatched by other midsized jets, and can cruise at around .75 Mach (458 knots).
The Sovereign’s cabin is 25.3 feet long and can hold anywhere between eight and nine 180-degree swivel seats. The interior is large enough that passengers can stand up in the 5.7 foot-high cabin.
It should be noted that Citations are not just popular with passengers, but with pilots too. The Citation series was designed with the intent of simplifying flight as much as possible. Systems make sense and flight operations are uncomplicated, resulting in consistently safer, smoother flights.
