Anyone familiar with the private jet industry knows about Cessna’s line of Citation business jets: economic, high-performing, comfortable private jets that consistently stand out in the market. The Citation III is one private jet that strikes the perfect balance between cost, performance, and comfort. It can fly from the Midwest to either coast, or nonstop from New York to Miami or Dallas.
The interior of the Citation III was designed to look and feel like the interior of a much larger, more expensive private jet. The cabin of the Citation III has a volume of 438 cubic feet and is about 5.8 feet high. Special headliner lighting and window design provide bright, indirect lighting, giving the cabin a spacious, open feel. The cabin holds eight passengers in seats that recline, swivel, and have adjustable armrests and footrests. There is an available 61 cubic feet of baggage space. Best of all, travel in the Citation III is fairly quiet due to its compliance with the FAR part 36 noise standards.
In short, Cessna set out to build a private jet that would meet the needs of private jet business travelers in range and speed while keeping costs low and performance high.
