Cessna Citation III
The Cessna Citation III is a private jet that strikes the perfect balance between cost, performance, and comfort. It can fly from the Midwest to either coast, or nonstop from New York to South Florida or Dallas Texas.
One of the best features of the Citation III is that it is fast. It was designed for optimal speed: the body utilizes lightweight composites wherever possible, and smooth, bonded metal surfaces to cut down on drag.
This aircraft climbs quickly to its flight level of 43,000 feet where it can cruise at a maximum speed of .81 to .83 Mach (539 mph). Its maximum range with four passengers is 2,920 miles (2,054 nautical miles).
Even in turbulence, flights in the Citation III are smooth, as are taxiing and landings, due to the trailing link landing gear. Pilots report excellent control and smooth performance in stalls, easy landings, and very effective brakes.
The two Honeywell TFE731-3B-100S engines are reliable and allow for great flexibility in all flight operations.
Cessna Citation III Interior
The interior of the Cessna Citation III was designed to look and feel like the interior of a much larger, more expensive private jet.
The cabin of the Citation III has a volume of 438 cubic feet and is about 5.8 feet high. Special headliner lighting and window design provide bright, indirect lighting, giving the cabin a spacious, open feel.
The cabin holds eight passengers in seats that recline, swivel, and have adjustable armrests and footrests.
There is an available 61 cubic feet of baggage space. Best of all, travel in the Citation III is fairly quiet due to its compliance with the FAR part 36 noise standards.
