The developers have worked to make as many systems usable and this creates a busy and interesting cockpit environment. The aircraft surprised me with is level of sophistication for relatively small, and not so young aircraft.” You can read it all via this in-depth Cessna Citation S550 review link. Enjoy the reading!
