Transcontinental Comfort in a Midsize Jet

The Cessna Citation X, first available in 1996, is a super mid-size business jet, capable of carrying up to 12 passengers with a transcontinental range.

Cessna announced the development of the Citation X in 1990. The aircraft was designed to be more competitive in the business jet market than earlier Citations, with greater speed, range, and comfort.

It would take six years to bring the Cessna X to market, in part due to integration challenges of the avionics and engines that prevented initial FAA certification.

The aircraft is powered by two Rolls Royce AE 3007C engines and reaches a top speed of Mach 0.92 or 661 nautical miles per hour.

Certified in 1996, the first Citation X was purchased by famed golf pro, Arnold Palmer in July 1996. Citation X soon proved its worth, setting several speed records. Additionally, the Cessna’s design team was awarded Robert J. Collier Trophy for design and performance.
