Citation X

Once the world’s fastest super mid-size jet, Cessna’s Citation X remains a leader in speed, power, and value. The Citation X is a combination of fierce performance and style; its striking, sleek design and strong aerodynamic structure are unmatched by its competitors. It is one of the best jets money can buy, and incredibly versatile, capable of handling short trips efficiently while also making it from New York to LA in fewer than six hours.

First introduced on the market in 1996, the Citation X has long been a favorite among both passengers and pilots alike—including legendary golfer and pilot Arnold Palmer, who took the first delivery of the aircraft and set a 1997 closed-course speed record in it. The completely new design was a departure from previous Citation jets, with Cessna going back to the drawing board to blow away the competition.  

For those who want to fly in style and comfort without compromising speed or reliability, the Citation X is the jet for you.



The Citation X’s sleek exterior continues into the sizeable cabin, which stretches nearly 24 feet long by five and a half feet wide and has 538 cubic feet of volume. At 5.7 feet high, the cabin offers plenty of shoulder and head room.

Two back-to-back double club sections seat eight passengers, and the executive-style seats recline, offering elegant quality and comfort. One of the pairs of seats can be replaced by a three-place divan. Tables pull out of side compartments as an added convenience, providing more space for passengers, and display monitors are located at each seat for entertainment or work purposes. 

The aircraft’s 82-cubic-foot interior baggage compartment is pressurized and heated, adding a higher level of protection to your valuables and luggage. Additionally, the Citation X has a fully equipped galley and a large bathroom. 


The Citation X’s twin Rolls-Royce AE3007C1 turbofan engines deliver 8,600 lbs of thrust, but sits among the best aircraft in its class for fuel efficiency, burning 336 gallons of jet fuel per hour. It has a range of over 3,000 miles, as well as exceptional runway performance. Most impressively, the Citation X regularly cruises at .90 mach at 43,000 feet, with a top speed of around .92 mach, or 604 mph.

The highspeed performance the Citation X is known for is in part due to the fact that it has extremely low drag, the result of months of trials and modifications to its aerodynamic frame as well as its terrific, highly swept, supercritical wingsAt the time of its debut, the Citation X boasted the highest thrust-to-weight ratio of its class of business jets, with the lowest fuel consumption, too.  


Five 7 x 8-inch screens display the Honeywell Primus 2000 autopilot and flight director system within the flight deck. A Honeywell GPS system and dual Flight Management System (FMS) come standard. An Enhanced Vision System (EVS) is available as an option for pilots as well, which uses infrared sensors to increase visuals for flight crews during low visibility conditions such as rain, snow, or fog.
