Citation XL

Purchase Price

$5,000,000 to $9,000,000

The XL offers ample space for a comfortable flight including the ability to stand up.  The 6′ cabin with a sunken floor offers added comfort to those longer trips.  The aircraft has 8 seats set up in “Club” formation.  One of the better features of the aircraft is the fully private washroom, which includes a mirror and a sink.  Cruise speed is about 500mph and generally flies around 40,000ft.  This is a benefit as it allows for greater comfort to fly above the weather.  Depending on the year there have been small upgrades to the aircraft.

Range is about 1200-1300 nautical miles.  This works out to around 2300km.  Saskatoon to Los Angeles is about the max-distance.  Headwinds, tailwinds, cargo and number of passengers all can affect the range of the Citation XL.
