About the Aircraft

The Citation Excel (Model 560XL) is a business jet built by Cessna. It has a 2,100 nm range, a standup midsize cabin, and cruises at 440 knots. It is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW 500 turbofan engines and a maximum takeoff weight of 20,200 lbs. The Excel was updated to the XLS in 2004, which upgraded the engines and added a glass cockpit. In 2008, the XLS+ debuted with upgraded engines and a revised nose.
