Cessna Aircraft delivers 300th Citation X

In 1996, golf legend Arnold Palmer took delivery of Cessna Aircraft’s first midsized Citation X business jet. Cessna delivered its 300th Citation X this week.

The jet was delivered to Cessna’s authorized sales representative, Jetalliance, based in Vienna, Austria. An unnamed retail customer will operate the plane from Vienna, Cessna said.

Cessna calls the Citation X the world’s fastest nonmilitary aircraft. It has a top speed of .92 Mach, just under the speed of sound. Since it’s launch, Cessna has delivered more than 45 Citation Xs to Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
