Citation X Origin

The Citation program was launched in October 1990, with the motive to revolutionize business travel; the prototype took three years of building and tooled its first flights in December 1993. The new market segment products from the Citation received their certifications in 1996, and the aircraft’s started to storm the business market and set their dominance from 1997, first deliveries. In its services for over two decades, the Citation X has been one of the company’s best-selling and most popular product lines. The super-fast beats that excel in comfort have been charming the private segment aviation industry with their unmatchable performance.

In the design of the magnificent super-fast beast, it needed as many actuators and hydraulic pumps as it took to build Boeing 737 aircraft; the real challenge was fitting the number of equipment used in the big aircraft like B737 to much lesser space within its wings. Also, the wing sweepback at the quarter chord of the Citation X is 37° which is only second to the Boeing 747 with 37.5°, considerably more than other private jetliners in the segment.
