N970JS is a Cessna Citation X (1999) Super-midsize Jet with 8 seats. Typically based for private charter at KISO (Kinston Regional Jetport At Stallings Field in Kinston, North Carolina, United States), N970JS has a recommended endurance of up to 6 comfortable flight hours at a cruise speed of up to 450kts for a maximum recommended range of 2700 nautical miles per flight leg.
N970JS can typically reposition up to 2800nm from its home base for picking up passengers for charter flights.
When the Citation X (“ten”) was being developed, Cessna’s goal was to outdo all other comparable business jets. It so often happens, however, that expectations do not meet reality. That is, of course, until the Cessna Citation X hit the skies. Screaming along at a cruising speed of .92 Mach, Cessna succeeded in creating not only the fastest private jet, but also, the fastest aircraft in civil aviation. Owing to its engineering success, the Citation X was awarded the Collier Trophy during its year of debut, which honors aircraft “for the greatest achievement in aeronautics or astronautics in America, with respect to improving the performance, efficiency and safety of air or space vehicles.”
