A prototype flew in August 1987, it was certified on December 9, 1988 and delivered from April 1987, 774 were delivered until 2011. The upgraded Citation Ultra was announced in September 1993, the Citation Encore upgraded with PW535 turbofans was announced in 1998, before the improved Encore+.

 

Design

 

The Citation V is a slightly stretched Citation II/SP, allowing a standard eight seats, with more powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada JT15D5A turbofans. The Model 560 variants are the fastest and farthest flying jets with the type certificate of the original Citation 500. The passenger cabin is 17.3 ft (5.3 m) long, 4.9 by 4.8 ft (149 by 146 cm) wide and high with a dropped aisle, has seven windows on each side and accommodates a four-seat club plus three chairs and a closed, belted lavatory.

The Citation V was announced at the NBAA convention later that year, US certification was granted on December 9, 1988 and 262 were delivered between April 1987 and mid 1994. The 1988 Citation V was followed in 1994 by the Citation Ultra with slightly more thrust, the Citation Encore in 2001 then the Citation Encore+ in 2007 through early 2010.
