Brad Thress, senior vice president, customer service, said: “Guardian is a great addition to the Cessna sales effort for the Citation X Elite due to the company’s global experience with the mid-size jet market.”

“The Citation X Elite programme is unique in the industry and having Guardian now as our sales partner extends our ability to communicate the many benefits the Citation X Elite offers,” adds Thress.

The Elite programme will upgrade legacy Citation X aircraft with a complete refurbishment and systems update at the Textron Aviation Service Center in Wichita.

Elite package upgrades to the Citation X include a new Honeywell Primus Elite avionics suite.

The upgrade also includes an aileron re-gearing to enhance lateral control efficiency.

The Elite package also offers guaranteed rates for ProParts and ProTech maintenance programmes for five years or 1,500 flight hours.

Operators will also have access to regular Citation ProAdvantage programmes including Rolls-Royce Corporate Care for engines and Cessna AuxAdvantage for the auxiliary power unit.
