In 1998, the Model 560 was upgraded as the Citation Encore, with Pratt & Whitney Canada PW535A engines and a decrease in fuel capacity to 5,440 pounds, 360 pounds less than the Ultra's, but it has more range than the Ultra, 1,700 nmi with NBAA IFR reserves. The reduction in fuel tank size allowed Cessna to fit the Encore with soft-landing, trailing link, main landing gear, a welcome change for pilots who griped about the notorious touchdown characteristics of the stiff-legged earlier Citations aircraft.The Encore was certified in April 2000 with first delivery in late September 2000.
