Description: The Citation is a family of business jets developed by Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron owned company, to meet the requirements of customers operating from regional to intercontinental routes. Citation jets are powered by two turbofan engines and cruise at high speeds while delivering outstanding comfort to the passengers in their spacious cabins. Cessna has received more than 5,300 Citation jets orders since the program inception in 1975. As of early 2008, the Cessna Citation production models are: CJ1+, CJ2+, CJ3, Encore+, XLS+, X, Sovereign, and Mustang with CJ4 and Columbus models to join Cessna's product line in 2010 and 2014 respectively.

Citation Excel is a business jet designed for routes ranging from 1,900 to 2,200 nautical miles. It offers the same cabin comfort as Citation X. Cruising at high speed Citation Excel can carry up to eight passengers and a crew of two. Citation XLS is an improved variant of Citation Excel business jet, one of the the fastest jets in the Citation family of aircraft. Cessna Citation XLS is powered by more powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada PW545B engine rated at 3,991-lb of thrust at take-off. Cessna began Citation XLS deliveries in 2004.

The original Citation Excel was delivered in May 1998, and 370 units were delivered through June 2004. The Citation XLS was first delivered in July 2004, and 329 are expected to be delivered through the end of September 2008 when will be replaced by Citation XLS+ as the production standard in the XL family. In October 2006 Cessna introduced Citation XLS+ business jet as the follow on to Citation Excel series. The new model features the fully integrated Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite and electronically controlled (FADEC) engines from Pratt & Whitney. Exterior and interior have changed by extended contour of the nose and expanded seat widths. Powered by two PW545C engines the aircraft will travel as fast as 500 miles per hour, have a range of more than 1,800 nautical miles, climb direct to 45,000 feet in 29 minutes, and land on runways as short as 3,180 feet. Citation XLS+ certification was expected in the first quarter of 2008 with first customer delivery at the end of 2008. Base price for XLS+ is $11.6 million.
