Cessna Citation Bravo
When Cessna decided to update its best-selling private jet, the Citation II, the result was the fuel-efficient Cessna 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.
The Bravo strikes the perfect balance between performance and cost. It costs the same as its predecessor, the Citation II, but outperforms it by far in climb, cruise, and altitude performance.
The Bravo lost 150 pounds of fuel carrying capacity, increased the maximum takeoff weight by 500 pounds, and still manages to burn fewer pounds of fuel per hour.
A landing gear new to the Citation series was added to the Bravo.
The gear is the trailing link type, which connects the wheel axel on the landing gear to a gas strut that then links up to the wing. This allows the strut to absorb the loads of landing, and taxiing over uneven pavement. In other words, the new main landing gear will make taxiing over uneven pavement and landings extremely smooth.
Cessna Citation Bravo Interior
One of the features that sets the Cessna Citation Bravo apart from the competition is its comfort.
The engineers designed the cabin to be very quiet, fitted with bagged insulation and an isolated interior shell to eliminate the low-frequency engine fan noise common in small private jets.
Additionally, a secondary seal on the cabin door was added to cut wind noise.
The Bravo has several baggage compartments with a combined capacity of seventy-three cubic feet, or about seven suitcases, four golf bags, and a few sets of skis. There is a convenient compartment beside the cabin lavatory for coats and carry-on items, and all of the seats have storage drawers beneath them.
