I figured this would be a good place for Citation 2 questions.

I have the opportunity to interview for a opening in a citation 2 and would like to know something about the airplane before I go talk to the owner. If any of you guys could help me out with anything like a webiste for specs or maybe checklists etc... I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance ya'll.

Dang,

KSUPilot took all the info I had about the airplane! Photo, you might not do as well here as you think, I don't think anybody flies them anymore. NJA has gotten rid of all of theirs and Flight Options has only a few left.

Might be better off in the "Corporate" section. Meanwhile, go out and google search CE550 or Citation II you should have a TON of infor on it. Since there's SO many of them out there. Or. . .I havent seen a Sporty's magazine in a long time (they finally got the point that I don't want any of their crap) but they used to have a couple CII videos or training manuals or something. I think.

JetReview.com has several system reviews including the 550.

. . .And what does a type rating have to do with anything? He's just trying to cover all his bases.

Thats fine but are they really going to ask about the airplane knowing you dont have any time in the airplane. Thats all I was saying

Here's what I did when I interviewed for my first jet position...

Just GENERALLY familiarize yourself with the aircraft enough to ask some intelligent questions about the airplane should the subject come up. You don't have to memorize the limitations or anything like that. All you need to do is demonstrate you have enough interest in the position to familiarize yourself with the a/c that they operate. They realize that you're no expert on the aircraft and if that was important to them they wouldn't be wasting their time interviewing you in the first place.

Don't go too overboard with the airplane stuff, most good operators will not be too concerned with that but more interested if you are a person they can stand to be out on the road with...

Thats perfect, With that avatar as my guide nothing can stop me now!!!!

I was actually just hoping familiarize myself with the aircraft as its the first turbojet plane I might be sitting in the cockpit of.

Just get to talking about golf and stuff like that. That's probably all the interview will be anyway. :)

The II is just like any twin prop you might have flown except it is missing a few levers. Simple systems, Simple limitations. Handles nicely and lands easily-even with stiff legged gear. Usually comes with HUGE worthless radios. Not much room up front and usually hot as a NetJets mediation room due to the great greenhouse windows. It is s l o w. dont bother pulling the throttles back for descent because you could not possible hit mmo or vmo. Just relax and good luck on the interview and hopefully job!

Turbojet? I think you need to do some more studying.

Why's everybody criticizing this guy?

Actually Mr. Technical O'Tool. . .if you want to get real in depth, he's STILL right if he just clarifies a little. Yes, the CE550 is not really a turboJET but a turboFAN powered airplane. But that's technical and maintenance type speak. The FAA makes no distinction between turbojet and turbofan airplanes, they classify them ALL as "turbojets." For example, FAR 135.243 states, "No certificate holder may use a person. . .as pilot in command. . .in passenger-carrying operations-(1)Of a turbojet airplane. . .unless that person holds an airline transport pilot certificate. . ." Of course we all know that the ATP is required if you're going to be flying a turboFAN airplane as well, but nobody makes these asinine comments towards the FAA. They decide to split hairs on this forum.

Also, before the FAA changed the holding pattern speeds in the AIM there was listed maximum holding speed for propeller airplanes and for turbojet airplanes. I'm sure there are more examples. So there, Miles. Another hair succesfully split!
