  1. A maximum range of 1500 nm/2871 km, a top speed of 404 ktas (748 km/h) and a maximum operating altitude of 41.000 ft (12.497 m) makes this an excellent aircraft for quick flights to critical meetings or short flights for family outings.

  2. The aircraft manufacturer says this cabin interior can accommodate up to seven passengers. (It would be a more comfortable flight for a maximum of five passengers.) The cabin height is 1,4 m, cabin width is 1,47 m, and cabin length is 3,4 m. Cabin features include upgraded seat tailoring, an optional fold-down seatback in the forward cabin and increased legroom in the co-pilot seat. New cabin lighting designs include an elegant upwash, cupholder, and sidewall lighting.

  3. The Fresh Air System keeps cabin air clean by bringing fresh air from outside into the aircraft through the engines, which compress and heat the air. The air is cooled and enters the cabin as cold or warm air and then exits through the aft.

  4. The Citation M2 Gen2 cabin also features personal electronic device charging capabilities, including USB-A and USB-C ports and wireless smartphone charging.

  5. Baggage Capacity (329 kg weight/1.29 m3 of volume).
