Cessna unveiled its new Citation Columbus business jet yesterday. It's fast (Mach .85) , efficient (PW810 engines) and has very long legs (4000 nm). To boot, it's got wireless hubs on board to, "connect your PDAs, cell phones, laptops and just about any other communication device to the rest of the world."
This is an aircraft designed with the global economy in mind.
First flight is scheduled in 2011, FAA certification in 2013 and entry into service 2014.
