In 1992, Cessna released the Citation VII. This model, in production for eight years, was by far the most popular variant of the Citation 650 series. In all, 119 Citation VII aircraft were built. Equipped with more powerful engines and a re-designed cabin to reduce ambient noise, the VII is able to fly faster and farther in a much more comfortable environment.
The Citation series jets have been the subject of jokes over the years, referring to their airspeeds, but with an advertised, maximum cruising speed of 552 miles per hour, the Citation VII cruises faster than the speedy, Learjet 45 or 60 models. Upgraded engines were utilized on the Citation VII, permitting operations at high elevation and mountainous airports even during hot weather that would have prevented the Citation III from operating. These engines enable the Citation VII to climb directly to 37,000 feet in just short of 18 minutes!
The Citation VII was designed to rival any other aircraft in its class. The Citation VII completion department offered a wide variety of interior options with many materials and entertainment system choices.
Extensive soundproofing was incorporated into the design of the Citation VII. Eight passengers and 415 pounds of baggage are able to fly comfortably, quickly, and quietly to their destination. The lavatory was even designed with passenger comfort and convenience in mind, and is able to transform into a dressing room if need be.
To this day, the Citation VII continues to be an efficient, proven performer that is a popular choice among private jet charter customers. With great range, ample speed, and a spacious cabin to complete trips between any Midwest City to either coast or a trip of New York to Miami.
Had a great flight yesterday. The pilots were amazing. Got us thru a storm and wind with hardly a bump. Very impressive.
The trip was great. We were scheduled to depart at 9:00am. My parents arrived at the Bermuda Dunes Airport around 8:15. The pilots were ready a long time before that. They asked if we wanted to leave early and we got my father loaded up in the jet and left 8:30am. You couldn’t do that with a commercial flight. The pilots were very courteous and professional. They made us feel safe and comfortable before the flight and during the flight.
I used to charter from other companies, until I met the personnel from Desert Jet. I haven’t flown with anybody else in the last 10 years. Desert Jet is an organization that puts safety first, and I appreciate their professionalism.
They are professional; they care about what they do. It’s a top notch organization right here in our backyard.
Thanks for the super crisp, professional, and friendly service…will definitely use you guys again!
Thanks for taking care of (my associate), he was delighted.
I just wanted to send an email about our wonderful flying experience with the company. We booked a flight for four to San Francisco for April 15 – 18… What an absolutely great holiday getaway. Your staff are so wonderful, the pilot was great and the overall experience was above expectations. We are hoping to go again this fall and sure hope we can make our dates work to fly with you. Thanks for making our weekend such a memorable holiday for all us.
We had a great trip and hope to be able to do it again. Love the pilots!
Thank you all so much for a fabulous flight! What a first class operation! Archie panted the whole way but T-bone acted as though this was “normal” for him! We loved the two pilots….what great guys! I look forward to a long relationship! Thank you again for everything….especially the Bones and Scones cookies.
Thanks again for making the past year of charters truly a great experience. It’s enjoyable to business with such a well-organized and professional company. You and the team at Desert Jet make the following business statement a reality – “committed to excellence in customer service”.
