FSD's new Cessna Citation, show your support...

Recommended Posts

FSD is proposeing to do a Cessna Citation (not the X model but hey it's another Business Jet). I think we should show our support for this new development. I for one would love to see them do a Citation over any other model. What do you guys think???

Ever since the old Abacus Corporate Pilot had an X in it, I have been hoping someone would do one.

I also think they should do the X too, since it is the most popular of the Citation series. But, I will be happy regardless of which of the Citations they end up doing. It's nice to see that another payware group is considering offering us another biz jet. :-)Rob

Sweet *******! The X is a $40mm jet and while cool, it's not that widely in use. How about a more popular everyday jet like Citation 500, I, II, etc. Single pilot certified. Used by Part 135's, cargo, etc. They are awesome and used very widely around the states. Christopher

The Citation X costs roughly $20mm and is considered a super midsized business jet. As GA jets go it has a reasonable following. There are many GA jets in this category that have only a few hundred copies running around. For those wanting pure speed, the X is a solid performer.For the simming world one of the smaller Citations might be a good choice. Easier to fly and straight wing runway performance that makes it realistic to consider 3000' sim runways.

ChristopherI agree with you the X is in another league and in my opinion shouldnt be called a Citation.I am type rated on the 500 / 550 /560 with most of my jet time on the 560 followed by the 550 (Citation Five and two) They are all noted for their short field performance as well as being the most widely sold business jet in history.Sad thing is the Citation Range has been sadly neglected by builders in MSFS.Also to consider are the CJ1 CJ2 CJ3 (newer with williams engines) and the still to come Citation Mustang which will be the baby of the family coming in below the CJ1 as a six seater single pilot a/cPeter

Frankly I would rather have them do some entry-level (or mid range) Citation jet that would be much more compatible with Reality-XP's line of avionics.Michael J.

Yes I would buy one of those - not the real one of course.If FSD built this I would plop down my Credit Card very quickly.The cockpit is so simple - all glass with just the required backup instruments and mechanical actuators. See ya,Kathy.http://forums.avsim.com/user_files/15840.jpg

Looks like we will be getting two Citation jets! Eaglesoft has just announced the upcoming release of the Citation X! http://www.eaglesoftdg1.com/upcoming_releases.htmVisiting FSD's support forum, looks like they plan on developing either the Citation I or II looking at the photo they have posted.Rob

Personally I'd love to see the incredible talent at FSD applied to something more "realistic" for the average flyer- one of the upcoming personal mini jets that's in the 1mil price range, etc... I think the bigger machinery is already well represented. Just my opinion though :-)Joel

The nice thing about the CJ1, or even the older Single Pilot Citation jets, is that one can find one "used" in the 1.5-2 mil price range. If I were a real owner, and needed a light jet for personal/business purposes, a used CJ1 would be an ideal choice vs. waiting for the Mustang/Eclipse/Safire/Century genre of jets... Look how Flight1's 421C did.... The real model isn't made any longer, but it's proven among the most popular for MSFS....-John

Yea, I'd like a FSD Citation. Talk about knowing it would be done right - FSD RULES!

The only problem with the personal minis, is they may never see the light of day.... The Eclipse, Safire and Century jets have all been slow in coming out--brilliant in concept, but as Eclipse found out, reality was something else. I'd rather they pick a classic, like one of the Single Pilot Citations, as that's the closest thing to a real mini-jet that we have.Either that, or the Lanciar IV-P--it can reach close to jet speeds, and that's within reach of many pilots... And like the Citation, it's flying and sold today...-John

>The only problem with the personal minis, is they may never>see the light of day.... I agree. On top of that it is rather hard to simulate aircraft that doesn't exist yet.Single-pilot entry or mid level jets - CJ1,CJ2, Encore, Bravo, etc - they are all available NOW and they are all great airplanes. I would also add Raytheon Premier I - awesome machine too and won the FLYING's prestigious award for the overall design.Michael J.
