After deciding to modernize the Citation V design in 1993, Cessna Aircraft Company blazoned the Citation Ultra which was granted instrument in June 1994.
The Citation Ultra is powered by two Pratt & Whitney JT15D- 5D machines with 3045 lbs of thrust, which allows for a rise rate of 4,100 bases per nanosecond. The avionics suite was streamlined to the Honeywell Primus 1000 EFIS glass cockpit. The cabin volume is 310 boxy bases. The confines make it comfortable for 7 passengers, with the maximum configuration seating for 8. The baggage cube can hold up to 10 bags, assuming your average piece of luggage is lower than 5 boxy bases.
The Citation V Ultra has a maximum range of headwinds, high altitude, hot temperatures, or advanced capacity of 2257 long hauls and a maximum speed of 445 mph.
The Citation Ultra is one of the fastest and commodious light jets. Compared with the Citation V, the Ultra features more powerful 13.6 kN (3045 lb) Pratt & Whitney Canada JT15D5D machines and Honeywell Primus 1000 EFIS avionics.
