A New Look

The Citation Excel certainly lives up to its name. Built in 2002, the aircraft has since had its interior refurbished later that year and exterior refurbished in 2015.

The Citation Excel has been reworked for the new decade. It features the latest in avionics, 110V outlets for powering and charging your devices on the go, free ground-based Wi-Fi, an ice bin, a CD player, a DVD player, a VCR, an enclosed lavatory seat with a vacuum toilet, leather seating for 7, and a new paint scheme.

Fulfilling the Need for Speed

Developed by Cessna in 1997, the Citation Excel was built off of the shoulders of the Citation Ultras while sharing the fuselage of the Citation VII, creating a new category of super light jets.

The Citation Excel is one of the fastest light jets available. It can travel from Chicago to New York in just over an hour and can reach Orlando in an hour and a half.
