The Citation III is a modern mid-size jet from Cessna that is designed for medium-range business class operation. The prototype is based on previous versions of the Citation family, such as Citation I, Citation II, and Cessna 500, with some additions and improvements. Thus Citation III can be competitive with many models in its class after several successful flights. Development of the aircraft began in 1978 and the Citation III made its first flight a year later. Upon its release, the aircraft had the longest range and fastest cruise speed of any midsize model.
The aircraft was capable of covering decent distances very quickly and set two climb time records for its class. Features of the Citation III include an elongated fuselage, T-shaped tail, supercritical wings, and the new Garrett TFE731 engines, which proved to be excellent performers on heavy airliners. The Honeywell SPZ-8000 digital system includes many uncomplicated safety checks as standard equipment.
The Citation III’s cabin accommodates six to eight passengers. The interior has been designed so that passengers can enjoy a quiet cabin and comfortable seats. Special lighting and window surround provide bright indirect lighting for a feeling of space and openness. The interior furnishings of Citation III are designed for both business negotiations and relaxation.
