Home / Aircraft Guide / Citation-VII

The Citation VII (Model 650) was based on the III but intended to take a big step forward in performance. The Citation VII has an advertised max cruise speed of 480 knots (890km/h or 552mph). Improved Garrett TFE731-4R engines enabled the aircraft to operate from higher-altitude airfields during hotter weather, when density altitude prohibited operations of the III. First flight of the VII took place in February 1991.
