The Cessna Citation VII is one of the first mid-sized, high- performance business jets produced by Cessna.
The Citation VII has an advertised max cruise speed of 480 knots. Improved Garrett TFE731-4R engines enable the aircraft to operate at higher-altitude airfields during hot and adverse weather conditions.
The first flight of the VII took place in February 1991. When production ended nine years later, 119 aircraft had been built.
