Cessna Citation Excel
The Cessna Citation Excel is a popular midsize private jet part of the Citation family. Cessna saw a market for a jet with the Citation X’s features but serves the more traditional market, which manufacturers then developed into the first Excel.
The Citation Excel was a combination of both technology and design from other models in the Citation family. They took the wide, stand up cabin from the Citation X, then used the supercritical airfoil to reduce drag from the Citation Ultra, then added the same tail as the Citation V. The Excel consists of all the best parts of all the other aircraft in the family, and has the roomiest cabin of any aircraft in its class, seating a max of 9 passengers. What makes the Excel so popular is that it has all the specs of a mid-size jet, but can travel at a light jet cost. The aircraft also only needs a runway of 3,590ft to take off, which is the shortest take-off distance of any other mid-size jet. The Pratt & Whitney dual engines make it out-perform all over aircraft in its class with exceptional speed, low drag, and a very quiet cabin. Overall, the Citation Excel is an aircraft that can be used for any mission, out of any airport, using any runway. It is another great private jet option in the Cessna Citation Family.
