The early success of the original Citation led Cessna to develop a larger capacity Citation model in the mid 1970s. stretched Citation in September 1976. The fuselage was extended by 1.14m to increase maximum seating capacity, while more powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada JT15D4 engines and greater fuel tankage meant higher cruise speeds and longer range. Increased baggage capacity and increased span wings were also added.
The new Model 550 Citation II first flew on January 31 1977 and FAA certification for two pilot operation was awarded in March 1978.
Major improvements were made to the design with the arrival of the Model S550 Citation II. Announced in October 1983, this improved version first flew on February 14 1984. Certification, including an exemption for single pilot operation, was granted that July. Improvements were mainly aerodynamic, including a new wing designed using supercritical technology developed for the Citation III, plus JT15D4B turbofans. The Citation II initially replaced the II in production from 1984, but the II returned to the lineup from late 1985, and both variants remained in production until the introduction of the Bravo.
