CITATION VII

CITATION VII
OVERVIEW

Anyone familiar with the private jet industry knows about Cessna’s line of business jets, the Citations. They are designed to be economic, high-performing and comfortable, and they consistently stand out in the market. The Citation VII is the high-end version of the Citation VI. It uses different engines to increase cruise speed and takeoff performance. The cabin is more comfortable, featuring improved design options and increased soundproofing. The interior of the Citation VII was designed to compete with the most luxurious midsized jets. Each customer can choose from a wide variety of interior design options. Options range from fancy wood finishes to extensive cabin entertainment systems. Additional soundproofing was added to the 438 cubic feet cabin so that business meetings (or naps) can be conducted without interruption. The fully enclosed lavatory has been expanded enough to double as a dressing room. The cabin holds eight passengers and has 51 cubic feet (415 pounds) of baggage space available in an external compartment. However, the most distinctive difference between the Citation VII and the Citation VI is its upgraded engines. It comes equipped with two Honeywell TFE731-4R-2S engines, flat rated to 4,080 pounds of thrust each – 780 pounds more than the engines used on the Citation VI. These engines improve takeoff performance by 180 feet at sea level, and by 630 feet at high-altitude airports. Its climb rate is improved as well – it can reach 37,000 feet in eighteen minutes. It cruises between 417 and 459 knots, and is a good choice for short trips.
