Description: The Citation is a family of business jets developed by Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron owned company, to meet the requirements of customers operating from regional to intercontinental routes. Citation jets are powered by two turbofan engines and cruise at high speeds while delivering outstanding comfort to the passengers in their spacious cabins. Cessna has received more than 5,300 Citation jets orders since the program inception in 1975. As of early 2008, the Cessna Citation production models are: CJ1+, CJ2+, CJ3, Encore+, XLS+, X, Sovereign, and Mustang with CJ4 and Columbus models to join Cessna's product line in 2010 and 2014 respectively.

The Cessna Citation Hemisphere is a large cabin business jet capable of carrying four passengers over a distance of 4,500 nautical miles (8,000+ kilometers). The aircraft is expected to perform its maiden flight in 2019 and the entry into service is slated for 2020 or 2021. The Hemisphere business jet will be able to achieve a maximum speed of Mach 0.9 powered by two Safran Silvercrest engines rated at 12,000-lb of thrust each. Cessna announced the development of the Hemisphere in November 2015 but its development was delayed due to the delay in the Silvercrest engine development.
