Private Aircraft Charters on Citation Ultra – History and Highlights

Charter Flight Group, the finest private charter aircraft company in the world is pleased to present the finest luxury charter jet from Cessna, the Citation Ultra. For over thirty years, Charter Flight Group has been providing the finest luxury private charter flights to clients worldwide. The Citation Ultra has been doing the same for half that time.This light jet was first unveiled in September 1993 and the first production models commenced flight the following year in June. The Ultra, a stretch design of the Citation V, was created in response to the availability of more up-to-date engine upgrades along with newer flight controls and safety features. In addition, Flying magazine named this luxury aircraft the “Best Business Jet” in 1994 and even the U.S. Army and Marine Corps sought this aircraft out for their use to replace the older C-12 Huron. Even the U.S. Department of Defense purchased five for use in drug interdictions and recons.

For instance, with twin Pratt & Whitney Canada JT15D5D engines, the Citation Ultra became more powerful and the addition of the Honeywell Primus® 1000 EFIS avionics brought much needed improvements in pilot controls. In addition, the Citation Ultra features CRT displays, one each for the pilots and a third center-mounted multifunction display.
