Sierra Industries of
Uvalde, Texas has received its Supplemental Type Certificate (STC)
for the Stallion. A Cessna Citation 500/501SP featuring the more
powerful Williams FJ44-2A engines, the Stallion is the latest in
Sierra’s Citation product improvement program. The Stallion
enjoys the added power of the FJ44 engine, but retains the thinner,
classic wing of the Citation I.
Sierra’s Stallion is a true winner any way you look at it
– performance, efficiency, and value. Compared to other
aircraft in its class, the Stallion outperforms competitors in
virtually every category at a fraction of the acquisition cost.
Benefits of the Stallion include:
- Climb directly to 43,000 in less than 23 minutes.
- Enhanced fuel specifics – consumption is reduced up to 25
- Max cruise more than 50 knots faster than a stock 500/501SP at
- Excellent field performance especially hot and high.
- Electronic Engine Controls for reduced cockpit workload.
The Stallion modification can be performed on any Citation 500
or 501SP and includes two new Williams International FJ44-2A
engines. The modification can be done in as little as 10 weeks and
is priced at $1,470,000. Sierra plans to complete 4 Stallions in
2006 and 12 Stallions in 2007.
Sierra will display the Stallion with the Max-Viz EVS-1000
system installed at NBAA's static display area.
