Powered by Innovation 

The Citation X boasts a distinct design with a new wing, tail, and landing gear, setting it apart from its predecessors. Its large engine intakes, related to the high bypass ratio turbofan, reduce noise and enhance fuel efficiency. The swept wing design with a supercritical airfoil contributes to its high speed and efficient performance​​.

Equipped with two powerful Rolls-Royce AE 3007C engines, the Citation X offers both efficiency and strength. These engines are designed with titanium blades and a three-stage low-pressure turbine, optimizing fuel economy and reducing acoustic footprint. Its performance capabilities include a maximum operating altitude of 51,000 feet, with cruising speeds ranging from 470 knots to 525 knots, making it a non-stop coast-to-coast performer​​.

A Cabin Designed to Impress

The interior of the Citation X is a harmony of luxury and practicality. It features a spacious cabin with dimensions that provide ample room for passengers to relax and stretch out. The jet typically seats eight passengers. The cabin includes a large lavatory, a functional galley, and a spacious closet, ensuring comfort throughout the flight​​.

The Citation X is equipped with Clairity™, an innovative cabin control and entertainment system that integrates with the jet's avionics. This system allows passengers to manage cabin lighting, temperature, entertainment and offers Wi-Fi connectivity for personal devices​​.

Space for everything

The Cessna Citation X excels not only in its flight capabilities and cabin comfort but also in its luggage capacity, addressing the practical needs of its passengers. The aircraft features a spacious and well-designed baggage compartment, which is an essential aspect for travelers, especially on long-haul flights where more luggage is typically required. 

The luggage compartment of the Citation X offers a substantial capacity of approximately 72 cubic feet. This space is capable of accommodating approximately 15 standard-sized suitcases, assuming each piece of luggage is less than 5 cubic feet. The practical design of the luggage space, coupled with the Citation X's impressive speed and luxurious cabin features, makes it a highly desirable aircraft for those seeking both comfort and functionality in their air travel experience​.
