Citation Ten to fly by end of 2011
The new Citation Ten is expected to make first flight by year end
Cessna has announced that the new Citation Ten is scheduled to make its
first flight by the end of 2011 and that first deliveries should commence in
the second half of 2013.
The Ten is a mid-size
aircraft with uprated design and performance, enabling it to fly higher, faster
and further than the existing Citation X (Model 750), the world’s fastest
certified business jet. First announced at the 2010 National Business Aviation
Association convention, the Citation Ten is designed for greater fuel
efficiency and increased comfort for up to nine passengers and two pilots.
