Skipping the unused Citation VIII and IX designations, the company announced in May 1990 the development of a 'larger mid-size' long range executive transport. The aircraft, heavily promoted by Cessna as the world's fastest business jet, was publicly launched as the Model 750 Citation X at the NBAA Convention in New Orleans in October 1990. 1.5m longer than the III, the Xs powered by two GM/Allison GMA-3007A turbofans, each rated at 2720kg, enabling the new aircraft to fly 6111km at a cruising Mach number of 0.88 at 11278m. Improvements to to Citation X announced by Cessna are the result of increasing the power of the engines, RR AE 3007C-1s from 6442 to 6764 lbs thrust. This increases the allowable MTOW by 400 lbs. The first Citation X was delivered to Arnold Palmer on 29 August 1996.


The Citation X (Model 750) became the fastest civil airplane in service with the retirement of the Concorde. The 750 can fly from LA to New York in just over four hours, and cruises at 51,000' where conflicts with other air traffic are improbable.
