After building and maintaining more than 5,700 Citations to
date, the employees at each Citation Service Center understand the
level of expertise it takes to build a quality Cessna
It's no wonder, then, that many customers turn to Cessna's
ValuePlus program when looking to refurbish or buy a pre-owned
Citation. When the aircraft is returned to the Cessna
factory, over 20 individuals dedicate their attention to the
Citation’s refurbishment process including maintenance
technicians, designers, and engineers.
Once a pre-owned Citation enters the production line, the
aircraft is stripped to its bare metal; every component, including
the avionics and flight systems, is put through rigorous tests and
inspections. Employees meticulously check to ensure that the
aircraft is in top working condition and functions as new.
After the Citation has been scrutinized and any required
maintenance performed, detailed interior replacement begins.
Every material and soft goods is replaced to the customer’s
specifications and any customized details, such as seating
arrangements and color scheme, are substituted.
As stated by Cessna Aircraft, the aim for the ValuePlus program
is clear: "to offer a value-priced, custom-finished,
pre-owned Citation that looks and flies like new." The result
can be seen not just in customer satisfaction, but also in resale
values for most ValuePlus aircraft; Cessna reports that most
returns are up to 25% higher than average retail Bluebook
Though the refurbishment process takes up to four weeks, Cessna
can with customers to maximize downtown by performing any required
maintenance and/or inspections.
