Cessna’s line of business jets, the Citations, is known for economy, reliability, and performance. They have consistently stood out in the market since the first Citation rolled off the line in 1972. Their major breakthrough into the private jet market came with the success of the Citation III, which won the Collier Trophy and cemented Cessna’s reputation as a serious contender in the private jet market. The Citation VI is one of the updates for the Citation III; it is more economical both in acquisition cost and hourly operating cost. The interior of the Citation VI is identical to the cabin of the Citation III: it is 5.8 feet high, 5.7 feet wide, and 18.7 feet long, which total to a volume of 438 cubic feet. The interior design is standardized in a double-club configuration. There is an available 61 cubic feet of baggage space. One of the best features of the Citation VI is that it is fast. It was designed for optimal speed; the body utilizes lightweight composites wherever possible and smooth, bonded metal surfaces to cut down on drag. It climbs quickly to its flight level of 43,000 feet, where it can cruise at a maximum speed of .81 to .83 Mach (468 knots). Its maximum range with four passengers is 2,000 nautical miles.
