Re: Max Height to Comfortably Fly Citation Encore

Better than a lear 35, which I would cut off at 6ft. A friend of mine is 6’2 and he has no issues with the usual 1-2.5 hour legs they fly in the citation. At 5’10 the thought of being 6’4 in a small citation would make me squirmy.

Current failure rates on the Command Sims are 80% - due in no small part to the relative lack of experience of the people attempting the upgrade.
Wow. Not a stellar reference for the training department then...
Are you going to believe everything you read on the internet? It's not 80%.
