The Cessna Citation X launched in 1996 and has been cruising at just below the sound barrier at Mach 92 (700 miles per hour, for those keeping track) ever since. This business jet blows the competition out of the water, or rather, the air, as it covers one mile every six seconds. At that speed, the Citation X claims to be one of the fastest commercial aircrafts available in the market.
Although the Citation X is largely well known for its unparalleled pace, speed is not the only significant attribute on the Citation X’s impressive resume. To date, Citation Xs have flown the equivalent of four trips to the sun. They have taken off and landed approximately 1 million times, which is no small feat. Daily, Citation X’s average duration in the air is the highest in the entire Citation fleet.
The Citation X has been established as both quick and reliable, and it hasn’t made any sacrifices in comfort either. As a midsize jet, the cabin is nothing short of elegant, containing everything that a living room can offer with eight luxurious reclining executive style seats for your comfort, as well as a full size galley for convenience. In addition to the seating area and galley, this jet offers a lavatory as well as a full size garment closet for clothing that wouldn’t fit in the spacious 72 cubic feet of luggage space.
Because of its competitive speed, reliability, and luxurious comfort, the Cessna Citation X is a favorite of passengers and pilots alike.
