The Cessna Citation S/II is a light corporate jet built by Cessna.
The Model S550 Citation S/II is an upgraded Citation II. It first flew February 14, 1984. The S/II could seat a maximum of 11 people. The aircraft utilized an improved version of the engine, JT15D-4B (2500 lbs of thrust) which provided more thrust at higher altitudes. Fuel capacity was increased to a total of 5820 lbs. The rest of the improvements were aerodynamic in nature. The wing was replaced with one using a supercritical airfoil, which had been developed for the Citation III. The leading edges of the wing and tail used TKS type anti-icing fluid in addition to bleed air used for the engines.
The Citation S/II was certified, like the II/SP, with a single-pilot exemption. Once certification was in hand, the S/II replaced the II in the product line in late 1984. However, due to market demands, the Citation II was returned to production in 1987. The S/II was discontinued after the 1988 production year after and approximately 160 were produced.
