The Cessna Citation Ultra was an updated version of the original Citation V (Model 560). An updated Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics suite consolidated multiple displays and replaced standard analog flight instruments. The upgraded engines (Pratt & Whitney JT15D-5D turbofans) offered 145 more pounds of thrust per side, and were more efficient.
As of December 2015, all of the Citation Ultra aircraft in operation were purchased pre-owned by the current owners. 8% are currently for sale with more than half of those (63.6%) under an exclusive broker agreement. When for sale, the average number of days a Citation Ultra remains on the market is 364 days.
