Why it’s a rental champ: a bestseller, suitable for small airports and one pilot operation
In 2002, Cessna decided to redesign its most popular jet, the Citation; the Citation Bravo was born. Its long range allows it to fly from Miami to New York, from Nice to Hamburg, while it’s excellent short field capability, with reverse thrust, enables it to use small airports. High altitude performance is bolstered by its low wing loading, reducing angle of attack. The low overall operating cost of the Bravo rivals even that of the best selling turboprops. It can be flown by a single pilot, and includes the Primus 1000 Honeywell flight director and autopilot system.
The cabin features two working tables, leather upholstery and excellent acoustic isolation. Contact Private jet finder to book your private flights.
