Anyone familiar with the private jet industry knows about Cessna’s line of Citation business jets: economic, private jets that consistently stand out in the market.  The Citation 1 is the single-pilot version of the original, turbo-fan-powered business jet in, what has come to be, the successful Citation family.  The original Citation, after many changes and developments, penetrated the market in 1977 due to its ability to operate out of short airfields and at modest speeds, all at a low cost.

Initial changes to the design of the Citation 1 included thrust reversers, a longer wingspan (47.1 ft.) and higher operating weights, and were conducted in the last stages of development to ensure maximum competition with other similar jets of its time.
