The larger mid-sized Citation Sovereign charter jet is one of the latest developments from the American-based Cessna Company. Based largely on the Citation Excel, the Sovereign, was first flown in 2002. The Sovereign features a new wing structure and various other design improvements. The cabin of the Sovereign is the largest in its class, featuring 40 percent more space than a Lear 60 which provides comfortable seating for eight passengers. It comes appointed with a luxury interior that business executive would expect on a high end private jet. When you are looking for luxury the Citation Sovereign won’t disappoint. The Citation Sovereign has excellent take-off performance and can make use of runways as short as 4000 ft; expanding the margin of safety when business demands access to small, regional private airports. The two Pratt & Whitney PW-306C turbofan jet engines power this business jet to more than 459 knots and to a range of 2,846 nm. This provides its passengers with coast to coast service and is ideal for a trip from San Francisco to Boston or West Palm Beach.
