>40,000ft I had no idea that model of bizzjet could scuttle all>the way up there. Thats a lot higher than the 737-3/4/500 can>go isnt it!I'm not sure what the 737s, 47s, 57s can do..the Citation V tops out at FL450. I've only been up to FL450 about 4 times though..we only go there when we are interested in going a LONG way at long range cruise power. Performance-wise, the Citation V does best at about FL340 to FL370. Our Mmo is Mach .755 (pretty slow for a business jet) and we can do .72 to .74 at FL340 to FL370. If we go above FL390 we are lucky to see .71 and at FL450 we might only get to .67...but the fuel flows drop dramatically up there.Regards..BeachAV8R
