    Model 650's are great airplanes, pain in the butt for my group because of all the variations (Citation III, VI, VII), but awesome for operators. They wanted to kill production several times when I started working but they kept getting orders. I think 2001 was when they finally rolled out the last one.

    6750 airframes were manufactured in the family.

    But only 350 of the C650 aka CIII/CVI/CVII

    Do they fly themselves?

    I think the preferred nomenclature is "flight attendant".

    seriousness, is it common for coaches to "jet" around? are we ahead of the curve here? 2001 at the newest sees kinda old? or maybe airplanes are like boats, age doesn't matter like a car. Maybe we just like classics? BTW - they need to lose that stupid red stripe. Go get a Casey Kinnell to pimp that thing out in Gold&Black

    There are details that wikipedia doesn't have. The genealogy of a particular model doesn't affect the complexity of supporting that model as much as the variation of the serials within that model. E.G. the model 560 series has the Citation V, the Ultra, the Encore, and the Encore+, but each was a distinct configuration handled independently from one another. The 650 on the other hand had 4 distinct configurations within the Citation III alone. The VI barely existed, and the VII had various options that led to multiple configurations. The original Citation model 500 is the most complex because it is old and had several block point changes that were at random serializations.

    Jets age very well, especially when you refresh the interior. It is common practice for most schools to fly there head coaches privately. Some schools even own their own airplanes, more common though is just to charter one.

    Neuheisel used Brad Culkins' jet to recruit. We didnt keep detailed enough records and got dinged by the ncaa. But, no this isnt ahead of the curve.

    And if Im not mistaken we are still using Brad Culkins' plane, so he might object to our repainting his plane.

    Georgia's Kirby Smart is in a major recruiting battle with Notre Dame for the #1 recruit.


    (Many UGA fans seem to find it ridiculous that they had to use a rental because the athletic department doesn't own a recruiting copter. :confused:)

    The bold. If an airplane is maintained properly, FAA certifications kept up to date, engines rebuilt/replaced as necessary, it will generally increase in value over time. It's a pretty big "if" on the front end though.

    Had Tad rolled into Australia in a submarine, the Froling decision would have gone differently.

    Lack of commonality is a huge headache. You can sort of tell that Cessna has not done much defense contracting or a lot of fleet sales to airlines.

    If I get a chance I'll walk by the nearby airport and take a picture of Phil Knight's hanger (not Nike, his personal stuff). It's pretty spectacular, especially at night.

    Edit - Found this because I'm too lazy to walk over there. And apparently it is Nike and not his. I was wrong about that.

    Couldn't they get a giant Buff logo magnet and put it on the fuselage?

    And some think CU is ahead of the game by using a private jet. We need a helicopter!

    Something more along the lines of a pimped up BnG Soul Plane would turn heads when circling over the high school of a prized recruit.
