Cessna’s original Citation offered performance at a reasonable cost, when there was a definite need for a good, entry-level business jet. The Citation line aims for economic, high-performing, comfortable private jets that consistently stand out in the market. The Citation 1 is the original, turbo-fan-powered business jet in, what has come to be, the successful Citation family.
Two Pratt & Whitney of Canada JT15D-1/A/B turbofan engines were chosen for the Citation 1. They provide a considerable amount of power to fly the small jet.
Although advancements and improvements have been made to models since the Citation 1, it still has a lot to offer in terms of performance. The Citation has a maximum payload of 2,097 lbs. Its maximum takeoff weight is 11,850 lbs. to reach a flight ceiling of 41,000 ft. It can reach a speed of 349 knots and has a range of 1,246 nautical miles with four passengers.
The Citation 1 requires a crew of two. The “tight” cabin, measuring 12.7 ft. in length, 4.9 ft. in width and 4.3 ft. in height, can seat six passengers. In addition, it contains a full-width lavatory and a small galley/refreshment counter.
