How they compare - Cessna's Columbus takes on the competition

Cessna's new Model 850 Citation Columbus will compete with established large-cabin business jets, including Bombardier's Challenger 605 and Dassault's Falcon 2000 family.

The 605 is the latest version of the long-running and popular widebody Challenger, and features new Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 integrated flightdeck and other improvements.

Dassault's twin-engined, large-cabin business jet family now has two members, the long-range Falcon 2000EX and the "defueled", shorter-range 2000DX.
