The Cessna Citation
Excel (Model 560XL) is a turbofan-powered
small-to-medium sized business jet built by the Cessna Aircraft Company
in Wichita, Kansas, USA. The Citation brand of business jets
encompasses six distinct families of aircraft. The Excel, the Citation XLS, and
the Citation XLS+ are one of these families.
XLS was the first "makeover" that the Excel received.
Besides a glass cockpit based on the Honeywell Primus 1000
EFIS avionics suite, the XLS featured the upgraded
PW545B engines with increased performance.
The aircraft is
operated by private individuals, companies, fractionals,
charter operators and aircraft management companies.
