The Citation Excel is a mid-sized jet. Its cabin length is 18.7 feet and it can fly up to 1,700 nautical miles – but it can take off in 3,590 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, which is 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 baggage compartment provides 80 cubic feet of storage space, along with some additional space in an internal closet. It’s standard cruise speed is 423 knots.
