Computational Fluid Dynamics were employed during the design phase to optimize airflow and reduce drag.

Swept Wings:

With wings swept at an angle of 37%, the Citation X minimizes aerodynamic drag more than any other business jet.

Rolls-Royce Engines:

Customized specifically for the Citation X, these engines provide over 6,700 pounds of thrust per engine, offering an unparalleled thrust-to-weight ratio and fuel efficiency in its class.

Unmatched Performance

Cruising Speed:

The Citation X impresses with a cruising speed of around 600 mph.


Capable of a 3,500-mile range, the aircraft also maintains fuel reserves sufficient for an alternate landing within 230 miles.


The aircraft can reach a maximum altitude of 51,000 feet, while maintaining a cabin pressure equivalent to 8,000 feet.

Optional Winglets:

These additions can extend the range by another 200 miles and allow for even greater airspeeds.

Luxurious Comfort
