The Cessna Citation Bravo was certified as an upgrade to the best-selling Citation II. With a number of improved features, this light jet is a favorite among customers looking for convenience and comfort.

The Cessna Citation Bravo has a long-range when compared to other light jets, able to travel 1484 statute miles non-stop, easily flying from New York to Miami for example. The Bravo cruises at average speeds of 459 mph and offers impressive short runway capabilities, allowing it to be chartered in and out of smaller airports closer to your destination. While its costs are similar to Citation II, it surpasses it significantly in performance, using far less fuel per hour.

The heightened performance of the Cessna Citation Bravo is largely due to the Pratt & Whitney turbofan engines and the Bravo was the first light jet to be equipped with them. The new landing gear also makes landings much smoother than comparable jets, even on uneven pavement.

In terms of comfort, the Cessna Citation Bravo is at the top of its class. The engineers designed the Bravo to have a quiet cabin with insulation and an isolated interior shell to eliminate engine noise, while a seal on the cabin door eliminates wind noise. The Bravo can accommodate seven passengers with club seating and has a partial galley as well as a lavatory on board.

The cabin measures 15′ 10″ in length, 4′ 9″ in height, and 4′ 10″ in width. The baggage space in the Citation Bravo is generous at 74 cubic feet and can hold several suitcases and gold bags. There is also additional storage in drawers under the seats.
