The Citation Sovereign is Cessna’s version of what a business jet should be: comfortable, high-performing, and economical. The strongest feature of the Sovereign is its range; it has coast-to-coast capabilities, like large jets, but still retains the features that make midsize private jets so advantageous. It can take off in under 4,000 feet, a feat still unmatched by other midsized jets, and can cruise at around .75 Mach (458 knots). The Sovereign’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.
One of the only aircraft to ever be awarded consecutive ‘Best of the Best’ awards by the annual Robb Report, the Citation Sovereign is a hugely popular Midsize Jet.
The Citation Sovereign also impresses in its high performance, it is capable of a range of over 5500km and has a maximum cruising speed of nearly 850kmh. This aircraft is an excellent option for groups wanting to travel on medium-haul flights as it successfully combines efficiency and comfort.
The interior is large enough that passengers can enjoy the 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 (100 cuft external; 35 internal); 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, too, is spacious – 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.
