Charter a Cessna Citation X, the World’s Fastest Private Jet

Delivering unmatched performance and style, the Cessna Citation X was the fastest business jet in the world until the introduction of its slightly faster successor, the Citation X+, and it remains a favorite among many in the private jet charter industry.

Powered by two Rolls-Royce engines with performance up to Mach .90 (690 mph), and offering a flight range of 3,700 miles at normal cruising speeds of 525 knots (600 mph), the Citation X is the fastest way for private flyers to reach domestic and intercontinental destinations, traveling approximately one mile every six seconds.

In addition to its incredible speed and range, this super mid-size jet offers a luxurious, well-appointed cabin with executive seating for up to 8 passengers. It’s plush interior is highlighted by polished wooden finishes and exceptional headroom with enough space to allow passengers to stand-up and move around the cabin comfortably mid-flight.

Additional amenities include a spacious lavatory, a full galley, and a pressurized & heated 72 cubic foot baggage compartment for your luggage, golf clubs, ski equipment, or whatever else you’re bringing along.

Although it’s record has been eclipsed by the improved Citation X+, which raised peak performance from Mach .90 to Mach .935, the Cessna Citation X, also known as the 10, is still faster than any other jet in its class, offering incredible speeds of up to 690 mph, cross-continental range, and transatlantic flight capabilities.

Despite its staggering, record-setting performance, it’s also one of the most fuel-efficient midsize jets in the world, and after the aircraft’s debut in 1996, Cessna was awarded the prestigious Collier Trophy in honor of its advances in aviation and aerospace technology.

Although it gained a lot of attention for its speed and performance, Cessna didn’t neglect the interior, designing a luxurious, comfortable cabin to offer the complete package for business and executive travelers.

Standard seating configurations include eight executive seats (extra large, extra comfortable seats with a full reclining capacity) and a fully equipped galley. A bathroom large enough to double as a dressing room is located at the rear of the private jet and a closet large enough to store garment bags is within reach.
