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 X was announced in 1990 as the fastest business jet in the world capable of cruising at Mach 0.92. The aircraft type was certified in 1996 with first aircraft deliveries occurring the same year. Cessna Citation X covers 3,300 nautical miles (6,000 km) routes, including intercontinental routes, cruising at 600 mph without refueling stop. Its spacious cabin offers outstanding comfort and can be modified to suit customer's requirements. It is powered by two Rolls Royce AE 3007 C1 turbofan engines each rated at 6,764-lb of thrust. The Citation X Elite is an upgrade being offered by Cessna beginning in November 2014 in collaboration with Guardian Jet.
