The Citation VI carries on the model 560 series were the Citation III left off. In true Cessna fashion, the model 650 wouldn’t remain a singular airframe, it would become a series of aircraft with upgrades from the first model 650, the Citation III.
The Citation IV proposal was promptly cancelled. Instead, the Citation VI was developed, featuring longer range with greater capacity fuel tanks, and better short runway, takeoff and landing performance. The Citation VI was marketed as an economical version of the Citation III with standard avionics and a cabin interior without any custom interior upgrades as were available with the Citation III. The first flight of the VI occurred in 1991, but the market was very poor for this aircraft, and only 39 were built before the Citation VI was discontinued in May of 1995.
Inside the Citation VI, passengers enjoy a quiet cabin, spacious seating, a fully enclosed lavatory with a functioning sink, and a “stand-up” cabin. The only cabin configuration available was a 4-place club section with two forward facing seats in the aft cabin. The Citation VI is outfitted with plenty of baggage space. With 61 cubic feet of storage, the Citation VI is able to accommodate all of your luggage needs for the weekend trip from Palm Springs to Puerto Vallarta and then some.
Six passengers aboard a Citation VI will arrive at destinations up to 2,550 miles away with a reserve of fuel for destinations with rapidly changing weather conditions, and the Citation VI arrives very quickly with cruising speeds just over 540 miles per hour! Four passengers are able to arrive at destinations just under 2,700 miles away with fuel reserves!
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”.
