Cessna Citation Fleet Passing 30 Million Flight Hours

Over 6,600 Bizjets Delivered Over 42 Years

Cessna's fleet of Citation Jets is passing the 30 million flight hour mark, an accomplishment unmatched in general aviation. More than 6,600 citations have been delivered to customers around the world since the first Cessna Citation business jet was put into service more than 42 years ago.

"More Cessna Citations have been sold than any other family of business jet, and more customers around the world choose Cessna's Citation jets to save time and meet their business and transportation needs," said Brad Thress, Cessna senior vice president of Business Jets. "People who choose Citation jets know they can rely on the team at Cessna to design and certify the right aircraft to meet their needs, and know that the Citation name is backed by a worldwide network of factory-owned service centers and authorized independently owned service providers. But we like to think it’s more than this. When it comes to the business of aviation, we believe that Cessna is looked upon as the aviation authority and the Citation name is synonymous with performance, dependability, and sustained value. It’s a role we embrace, and a reputation Cessnans are proud of. We look forward to living up to this standard for the next 30 million flight hours."

Through system upgrades and new model introductions, Citations have consistently set the standard of utility, comfort, and performance. Today, Cessna is manufacturing eight different Citation models—from the world’s first full certified very light jet, the Citation Mustang, to the world's fastest business jet, the Mach 0.935 Citation X.
 
Cessna has recently celebrated a number of milestones, including the certification of the Citation Sovereign+ and the Citation M2 in December of 2013, the delivery of the 400th CJ3 in March 2013 and delivery of the 400th Citation Mustang in January 2012. The first Citation flew in 1969, gained type certification in late 1971, and entered service in 1972.
