Description

The Sovereign Citation is the private jet chosen by the international football star and PSG, Neymar. He chose a private jet with a medium-sized cabin allowing him to move quickly. The Brazilian opted for a second-hand Cessna Citation Sovereign produced in 2008 and purchased in 2015. A much smaller aircraft than the brand new Challenger 605 of Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton or the Gulfstream G200 of Real Madrid football star Christiano Ronaldo.

A transcontinental device, the Citation Sovereign has been one of the spearheads of Cessna’s factories since 1998. Equipped with Pratt & Whitney Canada PW306C engines, this aircraft cruises at 830 km/h to travel 4600 km with 8 passengers on board and two pilots. This magnificent private aircraft benefits from an impeccable cabin design and several possible configurations.

The aircraft has a range of more than 5000km, which represents more than 6 hours of flight, enough to connect directly Paris to Finland or Turkey. On the other hand, this business jet cannot return to Brazil.

Key Benefits

  • Comfortable cabin
  • Autonomy from 3h to 6h depending on the number of passengers
  • Nice luggage compartment

Commercial features

Inside, the floor is in a staircase and the height in the centre of the cabin is 1m73. Neymar’s height being 1m75, he has to bend down to sit down. The maximum width does not exceed 1m68, hardly more than that of a Peugeot 3008, which is 1m55. Just what it takes to be comfortable, no more. The classic configuration of the Sovereign is 8 seats arranged in two club areas with 4 seats.

The important thing to remember about the Cessna Citation Sovereign is that it is a useful, no-frills aircraft that is particularly well suited for flights lasting 3 to 6 hours.

Pilot’s advice: Spacious (7.68 metre cabin), the Citation Sovereign is equipped with a hold that can accommodate 9-10 pieces of luggage, and remains easily available on demand for 8 passengers on flights of 3 hours on average, such as Geneva or Paris to Europe.

Private jet equivalent: Gulfstream G 150, Hawker 800, Falcon 20
