Cessna Citation Sovereign+

Citation Sovereign Exterior Citation Sovereign Interior Citation Sovereign Interior Citation Sovereign Flight Deck


The original Sovereign was designed to fill the niche between the Citation XLS and Citation X.  The Sovereign+ provides substantive upgrades to the interior and avionics along with aerodynamic enhancements to improve climb, cruise and range performance.  The cabin is typical of a mid-size business jet with a cabin length large enough for up to 9 passengers. The baggage is externally accessible with generous volume.

In addition to the interior refinements, the upgraded electronics include the new Garmin 5000 touchscreen avionics suite which features three 14-in flat panel displays and integrated autopilot and autothrottles.  The aircraft is powered by the proven Pratt & Whitney PW306D engine with 5,907 lbs of thrust and a 6000 hour overhaul period.

Deliveries for the Citation Sovereign+ started in 2013 and it is proving to be a worthy successor to the classic Sovereign. Engine maintenance plans for the engines (Honeywell CSP or JSSI) are available as well as airframe maintenance plans (Cessna Pro Parts).
