Aircraft History

At its launch, the Citation X was Cessna's largest, fastest and longest-range aircraft, and the fastest business jet in production. The Citation X has a cabin that is 5 feet longer, with greater head and shoulder room than that of the Citation III.
 
The Citation X comes with FADEC-equipped Rolls-Royce AE 3007C1 engines that produce 6,000 pounds of thrust each. The Citation X also has a new technology wing with a sweep of 37 degrees. It has a Honeywell Primus 2000 electronic flight instrument system avionics suite with five color LCD displays.
 
The prototype flew for the first time on December 21, 1993. The first customer delivery was to the golfer, Arnold Palmer, in 1996.
