Citation X+

Like an airliner, a private jet’s speed is measured in Mach. Mach is the speed of an aircraft relative to the speed of sound. The Citation X+ (ten plus) is no longer manufactured as new (it was discontinued by manufacturer Cessna), but is still available in the charter market.

It has a maximum flying speed of Mach 0.935.That’s over 9/10ths the speed of sound or New York to London in 5 hours.There are also a number of other private jets that fly at similar maximum speeds, of over Mach 0.9 including:

  • The Gulfstream G650ER
  • The Bombardier Global family
  • The Dassault Falcon 8X and 7X
