The first production aircraft of the improved Citation X has rolled out of Cessna’s Wichita, Kansas factory.

The improved capability and features of this aircraft have been received very favorably, especially with the new maximum speed of Mach 0.935. Being part of the fastest business jet in aviation is exciting for Cessnans,” said Kelly Reich, business leader for the Citation X.

Cessna claims the Citation X will be the world’s fastest civilian aircraft. Other improvements to the X include winglets, a range of 3,424nm and a Garmin G5000 avionics system.

“The increased range translates into an aircraft which can easily handle the flight from New York to London,” Cessna says.
