Cessna introduced the Citation V Ultra in 1993 and earned FAA certification for the plane in 1994. With stronger engines and improved avionics, the plane is an upgraded version of the Citation V, an aircraft that was first delivered in 1989. The Ultra has since been replaced by the Citation Encore, which was certified by the FAA in 2000. Cessna built approximately 350 Ultras during the plane’s production run.
