Schubach Aviation (www.schubachaviation.com), San Diego’s most experienced private air charter company, has added a 2005 Cessna Citation Sovereign jet to its fleet of private aircraft, bringing the number of super-midsize and heavy jets the company now offers to five, announced President and Founder Henry Schubach.
Selected by the Robb Report as “Best of the Best Business Aircraft Super Midsize,” the Citation Sovereign offers today’s savvy business and leisure travelers the ability to travel further in extreme comfort. Its luxurious cabin seats up to eight passengers. With 68 inches of stand-up room that goes the full length of the 25-foot-plus cabin, the Sovereign offers plenty of space to move around.
One of the most remarkable features of the Cessna Citation Sovereign is its
versatility. It has the ability to depart from shorter runways, thanks to its power-to-weight ratio and wing design. Those factors also enable the jet to climb to 43,000 feet in just 23 minutes and make particularly light landings. The Sovereign can travel 2,847 nautical miles nonstop at a cruising speed of 458 mph.
The fully equipped Sovereign features a refreshment center, a private lavatory with vanity, and a center-line closet with room for garment bags, coats and other carry-on items. Its external cargo area is the largest in its class, with 100 cubic feet of baggage storage available. The solid airstair entryway makes boarding especially convenient through a wide standard cabin entrance just a few easy steps from the ground. Other features include air show and flight phone.
“The new Citation Sovereign is ideally suited for trips coast-to-coast, to Hawaii, or Europe with one or two stops,” said Schubach. “It’s the aircraft of choice for passengers who simply want to travel in the comfort of a stand-up cabin. With so much cargo space, it also works well for shorter-range trips for passengers with a lot of luggage.”
The Citation Sovereign joins Schubach Aviation’s fleet of 12 private aircraft, meticulously maintained by the company’s own expert mechanics at its spacious 45,000-square-foot hangar at Palomar Airport in Carlsbad, Calif. Besides the Citation Sovereign, the company operates two wide-bodied Bombardier Challenger 601s, a Challenger 300, two Hawkers, a CJ3, CJ1, Citation II, and a Gulfstream IV-SP. Since its inception more than 20 years ago, Schubach Aviation has maintained a flawless safety record, flying passengers to destinations around the globe.
