The Citation Excel is technically a mid-sized spurt, yet it still fits in the super light spurt class – its cabin length is 18.7 bases and it can fly over to 1,961 long hauls (1,704 navigational long hauls) – but it can take off in 3,590 bases and climb to voyage altitude in just 18 minutes, performance statistics evocative of light private jets.
A member of the wide- ranging Citation brand of business jets, the Excel was evolved into the Citation XLS and also the Citation XLS models. At any rate, the Excel boasts excellent running capabilities, dependable systems and harmonious delivery of smooth, quick flights.
The Citation Excel’s cabin holds eight passengers in a cabin that’s quiet and draft-free due to the triadic-sealed entry door and triadic-pane windows. It’s 5.7 bases high and 5.5 bases wide, which is about average for a midsized private jet.
Details like fold-out tables and sliding headrests make the interior comfortable. There are several different seating arrangements to choose from, including one option with a three- person chesterfield. An external cube provides 80 boxy bases of storehouse space, along with some fresh space in an internal closet.
The Citation Excel is powered by Pratt and Whitney PW500 turbofans and features streamlined Honeywell avionics. Its design was inspired by the wing of the Citation V Ultra, the tail of the Citation V, and the fuselage of the Citation X.
