More about the Citation VII
After the Citation VI had a successful run in the market, the Cessna Corporation announced the next iteration in the Citation line: the Citation VII. Developed from the Citation III and following the Citation VI, the Citation VII showcases some classy updates, such as upgraded engines and cabin modifications. Many Citation III operators were included in the design considerations, offering their opinions for modifications. With its luxurious upgrades and top notch performance, the Citation VI became the mainstay for the Cessna Citation line for years and even continues to be a top choice for private jet travel.
Production on the Citation VII started in 1992 and ended in 2000. 119 aircraft have been built so far.
Key Features of the Citation VII
The Citation VII is usually configured to seat eight passengers but can be rearranged to accommodate as many as thirteen. With 51 cubic feet of external baggage capacity capable of holding 415 pounds of luggage, the Citation VII offers enough available storage to accommodate all of your carry on needs. With additional soundproofing, the cabin of this private business jet is one of the quietest in its class, allowing business meetings or casual conversations to carry on without interruption. The improved and expanded fully enclosed lavatory can double as a changing room. The Citation VII has a maximum differential of 9.3 psi for a comfortable flying experience. With this differential, this private business jet is capable of maintaining sea level pressure cabin altitude at an altitude of 25,230 feet.
Capabilities of the Citation VII
The Citation VII comes equipped with two Honeywell TFE731-4R-2S engines. Each engine is rated at 4,080 pounds of thrust each at take off, a 780 pound increase when compared to the engines used on the Citation VI. These powerful engines contribute to the Citation VII’s excellent aerodynamic performance, allowing the private business jet to climb to 37,000 feet in just eighteen minutes. With the trailing link landing gear systems, taxi and landing operations are a much smoother experience. On a standard day, the Cessna Citation VII needs 4,850 feet of runway to take off and requires only 2,520 feet of runway to land. For a swift flight, the Cessna Citation VII is capable of maintaining its high speed cruise velocity of 459 knot at an altitude of 41,000 feet. If your business venture requires a longer flight to a further destination, the Citation VII is capable of flying at its long range cruise speed of 417 knots at its all engine service ceiling of 43,000 feet.
