“What the Amish can teach you about the Citation X”

What a catchy little title.  You know, the Amish can teach you a great many things about land management, working together to create a successful community.  The ability to grow the very, and healthy foods I might add, that we eat.  How they are able to create such amazing wood work.  I mean, yes, the Amish people do have my respect for a great many things.  But, the Amish cannot teach you a thing about the Cessna Citation X.   🙂

The Citation X:

She is a Beautiful Aircraft.  This is her at cruising altitude.

The Citation X was first announced in 1990.  The first delivery was to Arnold Palmer in August of 1996.

At just over a 23 foot cabin interior the Citation X boasts a very comfortable Cabin for sure.  Typical seating is for 8 or 9 passengers:

The Range Map of the Citation X 3,125 nautical miles:

She can go coast to coast non stop.  Just over 4 hours from Seattle to New York.

A beautiful aircraft.  Very popular aircraft to be certain.

One of the things that is noticeable about this bird are the size of the Engines, powered by two Rolls Royce, Turbo Fan Engines:

Yes, the Amish people may know alot about the land and it’s community.  But not too much about the Citation X.  Pretty certain if you were in the Upper NE area of the United States, and asked an Amish Member about the Citation X, you may just get a blank Stare!

Ask them about farming, wood, foods, family and community, and you will get all the info you need.
