Geeking out in the Cessna Citation X from KVNY to KPGA (Van Nuys to Page), the fastest production passenger jet, top speed Mach 0.93, (700MPH), ceiling over 50,000'. Takeoff acceleration felt like a Ferrari, and the cruise was smooth and quiet.
Quick look inside the amazing Eclipse Aviation EA500 VLJ (Very Light Jet) N562MJ on display at the 2013 Sun ‘n Fun Airshow. The aircraft is labelled as “Total Eclipse” because it has been refurbished and contains cockpit equipment that the standard Eclipse does not have. This 5-seat business jet has a wingspan that is only 1 ft longer than that of a Cessna 172, however, it can fly over four times as fast. You can almost cover the entire engine intake with the palm of your hand, but make no mistake, those PW610 engines pack a lot of power! Thanks for watching.
Cessna Excel Citation Business Jet, Servicing and Takeoff
The awared for "Fastest Business Jet" goes to the Citation X made by Cessna. In 2012, Cessna tested the Citation X and broke speed records of mach .935 to make it The World's Fastest Business Jet. This record surpassed the previous leader in speed for business jets by Gulfstream. The jet is so fast that it takes military fighters to truly test the speed.
Please enjoy my 8th flight in Wr. Neustadt of my CJ1 with 3,35m Span, 21kg with full fuel, powered by 2x Funsonic FS 70.
Start was towards the active rwy of Wr. Neustadt, so I had to perform a "circling takeoff".
Landing in real heavy and turbulent crosswind with pneumatic brake failure, which I realised only at takeoff, when the brakes did not hold the runup of turbines. So I had to circle the landing run as well, not to overshoot. Problem was with the electronic gear valves which troubled me the whole day and on preflight inspection I got it back to work once, but is dead still then. Replaced in the meantime.
Glenn Pew takes a look inside Cessna's Citation Mustang. Take a quick tour of Cessna's introductory jet. Some may refer to the Citation Mustang as a very light jet or "VLJ."
