Citation Sovereign Receives EASA And JAA Certification

Also Gets The First EASA Noise Certificate

Cessna says it's received certification for its new mid-size, long range Citation Sovereign business jet from both the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA). This certification enables the Citation Sovereign to be certified and registered within all 25 European countries adhering to EASA regulations and 10 European countries following JAA regulations.

This type certificate, IM.A.033, is Cessna's first EASA certification and will enable Citation  Sovereign operators to obtain European registrations. In addition, the Citation Sovereign received the first-ever EASA type certification data sheet for noise. 

"We've collaborated very closely with EASA and JAA to insure that the certification process went smoothly," said Cessna's Senior Vice President of Product Engineering David Brant. "This EASA certification has gone extremely well due to the effort of the European authorities and the Cessna Sovereign team. We are pleased with the excellent relationship that has already been established between Cessna and the European authorities, and we are confident that this relationship will continue to flourish as Cessna pursues other EASA certifications."

Cessna's Citation Sovereign received FAA type certification in June 2004. The Sovereign is recognized as the newest mid-size aircraft on today's market. It uses simple systems and proven technologies that provide customers with industry leading dispatch reliability. The Sovereign has a 459 knot cruise speed, 2,881 nautical mile still-air range, 3,580 foot takeoff distance, 2,650 foot landing distance at max landing weight, and 47,000 foot ceiling.

The Sovereign's fuselage provides the largest cabin and external baggage compartment of any Citation. It will accommodate up to 12 passengers and a crew of two, and 100 cubic feet (or 1,000 pounds) of external baggage.
