The Citation X is Cessna's largest, fastest and longest-range aircraft and is recognized as the fastest business jet in current production. The Citation X has a cabin that is five 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°. It has a Honeywell Primus 2000 EFIS avionics suite with five color LCD displays.
The prototype flew for the first time on December 21 1993. First customer delivery was to golfer Arnold Palmer in 1996.
In 2010 Cessna started an update program to the Citation X dubbed the Citation TEN. Major changes include the Garmin 5000 avionics suite, new Rolls Royce AE3007C2 engine, a 15 in cabin extension, increased Maximum Takeoff Weight and winglets. The Garmin G5000 Integrated Flight Deck includes three 14 inch displays and four touch screen control panels. The Rolls Royce AE3007C2 engines produce more power at a lower fuel consumption than the previous power plants.
