Golfing legend Arnold Palmer took possession of Cessna’s first Citation X in 1996. As of 2011, the world’s fastest, largest business jets have logged more than 350 million miles in the air. Powered by a pair of Roll-Royce/Allison AE3007C turbofan engines, the Citation X achieves a top cruising speed of Mach .92 approaching 700 mph. At a full takeoff weight of 36,100 pounds, the jet ascends to 48,000 feet in just 28 minutes.
Cruising at altitudes of up to 51,000 feet, the aircraft doesn’t sacrifice fuel efficiency in the name of speed. A 1,000 nautical-mile flight aboard the Citation X burns less than 4,500 pounds of fuel. At its long-range cruising speed of Mach .82, or 624 mph, the Citation X files from Los Angeles to New York in 4 hours and 10 minutes. Other routes within its 3,400-mile nonstop range include Singapore to Tokyo, New York to London and Seattle to Honolulu.
The Citation X pairs unparalleled performance in the air with generous interior appointments. Its nearly 24-foot cabin ensures long-haul comfort with up to eight deep-cushioned, wide-bodied, swiveling and reclining seats. its full dressing room has a hardwood vanity, washbasin and flush toilet. The optional closet with carry-on and garment bag storage gets passengers to their destination looking as fresh as they feel. A full service galley has hot and cold water and additional storage.
Cessna finishes each Citation X cabin according to its owner's specific tastes from selections of leather upholstery, hardwoods and fabrics. The jet's heated 82-cubic foot exterior compartment holds baggage for up to eight passengers and two crew. Optional features include a satellite phone system, compartmentalized cabin, and seating for cabin attendants.
Ergonomic crew seats reduce pilot stress during long flights. The Primus 2000 guidance system's five display screens fill the cockpit instrument panel with constantly updating flight data. The Primus 2000 works in concert with a Honeywell Global Positioning System and Dual Flight Management Systems.
The LASERF IV Inertial Reference System, TCAS II to warn of nearby aircraft and the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System complete the jet's' list of standard cockpit warning displays. Other safety features include an electrically heated windshield, thrust reversers and powered nose-gear steering.
Its avionic advances earned the original Citation X the National Aeronautics Association's prestigious Robert Collier Award. In the years since, this aircraft has more than fulfilled its promise. Choosing the Citation X for your next business or personal outing will get you to your destination with speed and comfort that commercial airline operators only dream about.
