Produced by Cessna, the Citation II/550/551 charter jet provides more cabin space and longer range than other light jet in its class. In fact, Cessna introduced the Citation II as a result of the rapidly growing demands for light business jets. Although a light jet, the Citation II can still climb up to 43,000 feet, well above any inclement weather. Typical seating configuration for the Citation II allows for two crew members and seven passengers to be seated comfortably. With more room and improved range, the Citation II helped redefine the requirements of the light jet. The Citation II can travel at speeds of up to 464 mph for over 1,930 nautical miles. This twin engine jet aircraft is a smart choice when considering a jet charter from Chicago, Illinois to Dallas on a private jet.
