Founded in 1927, Cessna has been the leading American aircraft manufacturing company of its time. The Citation XLS+, an enhanced version of the XLS and Excel, is an exquisite choice for a mid-size jet, transporting its passengers in a safe and luxurious setting to their destination. The Citation line alone now forms one of the largest business jet fleets currently in service with the 7,000th Citation being delivered on June 27, 2016. It features better performance capabilities through the use of upgraded engines. In 2008 the XLS+ received its FAA certification.
Known to be the most popular business jet in the world, the Citation XLS+ midsize jet accommodates its passengers with comfort and luxury with features that would typically be aboard a larger, aircraft. With its cabin length is 18.7 feet and it can fly up to 2,100 nautical miles; however, it can also take off in 3,560 feet, one of the shortest takeoff distances of any midsize jet, and climb to cruise altitude in under 15 minutes.
The XLS+ holds comfortably nine passengers in its quiet cabin in part due to the triple-sealed entry door and triple-pane windows. Smaller details like fold-out tables, and sliding headrests make this one of the most comfortable flights in its class. Combined with the indirect LED lighting the cabin feels overall roomier, and more natural.
For those who command supreme performance from their aircraft, the Citation XLS+ fulfills this need as it is built around Pratt & Whitney high bypass engines that deliver the generosity of range and performance to the utmost. Pilots and co-pilot’s cruise with confidence with the aircraft’s ability to provide instant, up-to-date weather information along with detailed flight status data and airport diagrams, thanks to its enhanced avionics.
