The Cessna Citation Sovereign is an American mid-size business jet developed by Cessna. It is currently the second largest member of the Citation product line. It was first unveiled to the public in 1998 at the NBAA exhibition in Las Vegas.
The Sovereign is considered a transcontinental aircraft and is used primarily for corporate travel. Its claim to fame is that it can take off and land in short distances, thanks to a moderately swept high aspect ratio wing, and (when light) 92 knot Vref speed. The Sovereign seats eight passengers in a typical cabin configuration, with a maximum high-density capacity of 12, in addition to the crew of two.
