Cessna’s aim of producing simple, economical business jets is met in the Citation Ultra. Few private jets in its class can compare in terms of cabin dimensions, speed, and takeoff distance. The cabin, which can hold eight passengers, stretches to seventeen feet, five inches – the longest cabin of any light private jet. The strategic use of seamless wall panels, indirect lights, and mirrors make the cabin seem even more spacious. Passengers enjoy the cabins equipped with individual flat panel entertainment systems and audio jacks (an optional feature). The Ultra has storage space for 67 cubic feet of baggage, or about six hundred pounds worth of golf bags, suitcases, or whatever else worth bringing along. Arguably the best selling point of the Ultra is its short takeoff distance. The Ultra can complete a takeoff in just 3,200 feet while loaded to its maximum takeoff weight of 16,300 pounds. Not only is the Ultra quick on takeoff, but it is pretty fast at a cruise altitude of 37,000 feet as well. It has a maximum cruise speed of 426 knots.
