The Citation Excel is a technically a mid sized jet, its cabin length is 18.7 feet and it can fly up to 1,961 miles (1,704 nautical miles) but can take off in 3,500 feet and climb to cruise altitude in just 18 minutes, performance statistics reminiscent of light private jets. At any rate, the Excel boasts excellent handling capabilities, reliable systems, and consistent 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 triple-sealed entry door and triple-pane windows. It is 5.7 feet high and 5.5 feet wide, 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 divan.   An external compartment provides 80 cubic feet of storage space, along with some additional space in an internal closet.

This private jet can climb to its cruise level in just eighteen minutes and can cruise at 423 ktas. The Excel has a range of 1,907 miles (1,657 nautical miles) with four passengers. It can take off on runways as short as 3,500 feet the shortest takeoff distance of any midsized jet.

The Excel outperforms competing private jets due largely to its two Pratt & Whitney PW545 engines. They are designed with a high-pressure core to increase thrust to 3,804 pounds apiece. Increased air flow through the engine’s core allows the engines to operate at higher temperatures. A Teflon seal was added to prevent oil leaks, and the single-channel electronic control engine allows the pilot to configure fuel flow at the beginning of flight and leave the system to do the rest during flight. Manual fuel control remains available for emergencies. The engines can reach .80 Mach uninstalled and burn, on average, 250 gallons of fuel per hour (some light private jets burn as much as 346 gallons per hour).

The Citation Excel was designed with the needs of the pilot in mind. The preflight check is easy to carry out and many flight systems only have to be set once after takeoff, then automatically adjust in flight.

In short, the Citation Excel is a solid, reliable private jet that can take you anywhere a mid sized jet can go at the cost of light-jet travel. Its comfort, performance, and reliability match Cessna’s high standards in private jet travel.
