Cessna Citation Sovereign
The Cessna Citation Sovereign is Cessna’s version of what a business jet should be. It is comfortable, high-performing, and economical.
The strongest feature of the Sovereign is its range of 3190 nm; it has coast-to-coast capabilities, like large jets, but still retains the features that make mid-size private jets so advantageous. It can take off in under 4,000 feet, a feat still unmatched by other mid-sized jets, and can cruise at around .75 Mach (460 knots).
Trailing link landing gears are used on the Sovereign for smooth taxiing and landings. All main landing gear have double wheels, designed to last more than 300 landings.
The carbon brake system is phenomenal as well, and is cited to last for more than 300 landings.
A variable gearing mechanism was added to constantly change flaps to their best angle for flight, usually between 15 and 25 degrees, resulting in greatly reduced pitch change. The Citation Sovereign was the first of any business jet to use the variable gearing mechanism, once again setting it apart from competing private jets.
Cessna Citation Sovereign Interior
The aircraft’s cabin is 25.3 feet long and can hold anywhere between eight and nine or more with most seats able to swivel 180 degrees. The interior is large enough that passengers can enjoy a 5.7 foot-high cabin.
The baggage space available in the Sovereign is the largest of comparable private jets. The Sovereign has 135 cubic feet of total baggage space; whereas the competing Hawker 800XP has only 48, and the Lear 60XR has only 54.
The internal closet is large enough to hold full-sized garment bags.
The bathroom is spacious as well. Passengers can change their clothes in it with the assurance of complete privacy (due to the double-sliding hard doors).
A non-fluorescent lighting system was installed to increase passenger comfort and cut down on production costs. The lighting system now in place has dimmable LEDs, which have a life of about 100,000 hours.
The cabin and cockpit can be cooled before starting the engines.
