Cessna Citation X: The Most Popular Private Jet
The Cessna Citation X and Citation family has been the world’s best selling private jets in the industry. The mix of both luxury, performance, and speed is the reason why it is the most popular jet out there today. Cessna prides itself on delivering high-performance specifications on all their aircraft. The Citation X family includes a few different variations including Citation XLS, Citation XLS+, and Citation X+.
The Citation X is well known for being the fastest private jet on the market. Cessna’s body frame design made this jet more aerodynamic and focused on decreasing drag. The powerful engines were manufactured by Rolls Royce each with over 6,400 lbs of thrust, making the X the first Cessna aircraft to be powered by this type of engine. Everything about this private jet is meticulously optimized for peak performance. Private Flyers want to get from point A to point B in comfort, but also as fast as possible which is why the Citation X is so popular.
The interior also features this meticulous detail. With a jet this fast, the interior needs to be quiet and smooth. Cessna’s proprietary sound-proofing cuts down drastically on noise in the cabin, creating an extremely quiet passenger experience. The Citation X excels at creating an interior that combines both comfort and style. This is a jet equipped to handle any flyer’s mission.
