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.

Cessna Citation Sovereign was designed for ultimate cabin comfort. It accommodates up to 12 passengers plus a two-man crew. This jet cruises at 459 knots on routes of 2,800+ nautic miles (5,000+ km) such as coast-to-coast in the United States of America (USA) and between Europe and USA. It is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW306C each rated at 5,688-lb. The first Citation Sovereign midsize business jet was delivered to Austria-based Jet Alliance in late April 2005. It has been certified for operation from runways of 3,600-ft (1,200 meters) in length.
