The Citation III is one private jet that strikes the perfect balance between cost, performance, and comfort. It can fly from the Midwest to either coast, or nonstop from New York to Miami or Dallas. The interior of the Citation III was designed to look and feel like the interior of a much larger, more expensive private jet. The cabin of the Citation III has a volume of 438 cubic feet and is about 5.8 feet high. Special headliner lighting and window design provide bright, indirect lighting, giving the cabin a spacious, open feel. The cabin holds eight passengers in seats that recline, swivel, and have adjustable armrests and footrests. There is an available 61 cubic feet of baggage space. Best of all, travel in the Citation III is fairly quiet due to its compliance with the FAR part 36 noise standards. One of the best features of the Citation 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. At the time of its release, the Citation III had the longest range and fastest overall cruise speed of any midsized jet.
