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.
Popular routes with UberJets members using the Citation Excel include: Northeast to and from Florida, Los Angeles to and from Aspen, Los Angeles to and from Jackson Hole. *Due to the range of the Citation Excel, cross country trips require a fuel stop.

Private Jet Travel: Why It’s Greener Than You Think
Private jet travel always had a stigma attached to it when it comes to the environment and global warming. Some people believe that private jets cause unnecessary damage to the planet, however, private jet travel is less harmful than what the public believes. Private jets are not the problem, even though it’s popular to blame them.
The private jet industry has been very conscious about going greener. Many companies are converting to more sustainable fuel alternatives and carbon offset programs. In fact, according to NBAA, The whole industry had a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions since 2005. People also overlook and down-play the environmental effect of mass tourism and large commercial flights. For example, a six-hour round trip on a commercial airliner emits 149 tonnes of CO2. Comparably, the same rough trip flight on a Citation X emits 12.5 tonnes of CO2. The commercial airliner has over ten times the amount of carbon emission than the private jet. Also, private jet travel is more efficient, meaning less wait time ground and delays, cutting on the ground emissions tremendously.
The general public’s bashing of private jet travel is more fun than factual. Studies have shown that private jets do not have as much of a harmful effect on the environment as people believe. The entire industry is very mindful of their carbon footprint and is always searching for “greener” alternatives. The commercial airline industry should be scrutinized as well since commercial aircraft emit over ten times the amount of carbon emissions than a private jet. Unfortunately, people care more about headlines and drama than facts.
