These features cement the status of the Citation X as the fastest and most reliable business jet in the world.

Below is a quick review of the Citation X`s main features


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), recently cleared the Citation X as the globes speediest civilian jet with excellent stability levels as well as handling when at high speeds. This makes the jet reliable for both long and short business trips giving the users uncompromised comfort levels. The Cessna team of engineers designed the Citation X in such a manner that its streamlined feature does not affect its navigation or manoeuvrability at high speeds reaching up to 705 mph.

Key features

With elliptical winglets extending the main wings` tips, customers can relax in the jet due to increased stability and comfort even during adverse weather. According to Cessna CEO, the business jet allows customers to get to their destinations faster than other any other civilian aircraft thus making it convenient for users with urgent business needs. On top of the speed, the Citation X can accommodate up to 12 customers at once (quite an impressive feature considering its 976km/h speed)

Also, another feature is its capability to manage high altitudes of up to 51,000 feet which allows it to fly significantly above adverse weather and commercial traffic in the airspace. This makes it easier for pilots to manage a maximum cruise speed of approximately 527 knots. Therefore, customers can reach their destinations faster and more comfortably than with other aircraft.

The Citation X incorporates significant changes in design which includes a 14.9-inch longer cabin, an additional 0.8m in vertical height, a 5.6ft wingspan addition and an impressive take-off weight of 36,600lb.
