The Citation X Elite program sends legacy Citation X aircraft through a complete refurbishment and systems update at the Textron Aviation Service Center in Wichita for customers seeking a low-cost option for owning one of the fastest civil aviation aircraft in the world.

Elite package upgrades to the Citation X include a new Honeywell Primus Elite avionics suite capable of supporting future requirements such as ADS-B, RNP approaches and synthetic vision. Customers also get a graphical weather upgrade, FMS 6.1 upgrade with WAAS/LPV capability, and ADS-B Out.

The upgrade also includes an aileron regearing to enhance lateral control efficiency in gusty or crosswind conditions, a new exterior paint, refurbished interior including new crew and passenger seats, a new cabin management system and monitors and optional enhanced connectivity for Internet and global voice service.

The Elite package also offers guaranteed rates for ProParts and ProTech maintenance programs for five years or 1,500 flight hours, allowing operators to precisely project the cost of operation (excluding fuel). Operators also have access to regular Citation ProAdvantage programs including Rolls-Royce Corporate Care for engines and Cessna AuxAdvantage for the auxiliary power unit.
