Overview Citation II

The Citation II is outfitted with two Pratt and Whitney JT15D-4 turbofan engines, each delivering 2,500 pounds of thrust and requiring inspection every 3,500 hours. Remarkably, this private business jet only necessitates 3,450 feet of runway for takeoff and a mere 2,078 feet for landing on a standard day. With its certified maximum service ceiling of 43,000 feet, well above typical aviation traffic, the Citation II soars high. It maintains a high-speed cruise velocity of 376 knots at an altitude of 35,000 feet, ideal for swift travel. During longer journeys, it can sustain a long-range cruise speed of 307 knots at its maximum all-engine service ceiling of 41,000 feet. With a climb rate exceeding 3,000 feet per minute, this private business jet offers impressive performance capabilities. Furthermore, it retains the short runway capabilities of its predecessor, granting access to airfields previously inaccessible to aircraft in its class.

The standard configuration of the Citation II encompasses modern digital avionics. Included in the avionics suite are instruments like the Sperry Primus 400 weather radar, ADF 60s, dual Collins TDR 90 transponders, dual Sperry SPZ 500 5″ flight directors and SPZ 500 autopilot, King KLN 90B GPS, Sperry AA 215 radar altimeter, dual Collins VHF 20A comm radios, VIR 30A navs, and DME 40s. The Citation II flight deck boasts exceptional visibility of 340 degrees, facilitating navigation. With its user-friendly controls, the aircraft can be configured for single-pilot operation, reducing operating costs and enhancing flight planning flexibility.
