Meet Columbus, Cessna’s Big, Fat New Jet

Cessna invested five years of market research before deciding on the final design for its newest, and largest, jet to date, the Citation Columbus. The Columbus will fly 4,000 miles nonstop?New York to Munich, London to Dubai, Sydney to Singapore?at more than 600 mph. Up to 10 passengers can ride in the back, nestled in newly designed seats or on the optional couch. “This aircraft will be Cessna’s greatest achievement,” says CEO Jack Pelton. A pair of next-generation Pratt & Whitney Canada jet engines are hailed as ultra-quiet and fuel efficient with fewer emissions. Prices start at $27 million; deliveries are expected to start in 2014.
