Citation Encore (Plus)
A worthy successor to the Citation Encore, the Encore Plus hit the market in 2007, endowed with a Pratt & Whitney Canada PW535B engine and an integrated Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics platform. This advanced jet is prized for its dexterity (it can land on runways as short as 2,439 feet), its ability to fly non stop for a solid 1,625 miles, and, most notably, an increased payload of 16,630 lbs which allows five passengers to travel with a full fuel tank. With one of the largest cabins in its class (17.8 feet long) it’s not short on space or creature comforts. The Encore Plus’ remastered technology has been well received by pilots who have praised the aircraft for delivering a much smoother landing when measured against earlier Citations models.
