The strongest feature of the Sovereign is its range; it has coast-to-coast capabilities, like "large jets," but still retains the features that make midsize "private jets" so advantageous.

It should be noted that Citations are not just popular with passengers, but with pilots too. The Citation series was designed with the intent of simplifying flight as much as possible. Systems make sense and flight operations are uncomplicated, resulting in consistently safer, smoother flights.

The Sovereign is a jet where Cessna decided not to cut costs and simplify was probably the most vital portion of the airplane: the wing.

The Sovereign moves on from the cheap, easy-to-produce straight wings that earlier models used in favor of a wing with a 16 degree leading edge sweep and a 12.7 degree sweep at the quarter cord.

The Citation Sovereign top speeds don’t impress, it is not due to any shortfall of its engines.

Cessna fitted the Sovereign with Pratt & Whitney Canada PW306C turbofan engines, which provide 5,600 lbs of thrust each on takeoff.

The Citation Sovereign engines were flat-rated to minimize noise. The Sovereign has two jet fuel pump systems, a standard engine-driven system and another DC-powered system for backup and use during startup procedures.

The Citation Sovereign wing design greatly improves airflow and lift capabilities, resulting in the Sovereign’s cruise speeds of .75 Mach.
