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).
Safety was, of course, a top priority for Cessna when they designed the Sovereign. Everything, from its simple flying procedures to its many standard emergency systems, prevents accidents and makes handling them a lot simpler. A seventy-six foot oxygen system comes standard with an additional seventy-six foot system, if requested. The Sovereign is certified to the safety standards of both FAR part 25 and JAR 25.
For a jet that has only been on the market since 1994, the Sovereign has done incredibly well. Pilots and clients love its versatility, its range, its simple systems, and its comfort. After all, a private jet that can fly directly from California to Hawaii in four and a half hours without breaking the bank has to be well-liked.
