Iv’e been having fun the last few days watching Citation X flights(code# C750). These things are like time machines! check out :

Ground speeds exceeding mach 1 :open_mouth: These folks will have flown clear across the whole blessed country in probably less then four hours. Amazing.


#2

well the CE-750 is the fastest non-military jet in production!!! I’ve talked with a couple pilots, and they said it will go faster than Mach 1


#3

wishing we would upgrade to a X I’m stuck in a C680… Lol almost Mach 1


#4

C680 is a very nice aircraft!!!


#5

Yes it is a great aircraft, I love how it plants me in my seat every climb out always have overspeed notice at a 6000ft per min climb lol until after like 3 or 4 thousand foot.

My dad’s uncle flies a Citation X out of Modesto, California for Foster Farms. He really enjoys his job. Who wouldn’t love to be a corporate pilot for them. They operate 3 aircraft, the Citation X, a King Air 350, and a King Air 200. Pretty great, knowing that on any given day, you’d be flying one of those three airplanes. Too cool.

How’s a ground speed of 659 sound? :open_mouth:

Not as good as 671 that he got up to! Impresive yes, but you have to give some credit for a heck of a tailwind, probably jetstream.


#9

Always fun to see a groundspeed past mach 1.
Thank you tail wind!

Very high west to east upper level winds at about 140 knts. Up to 1.12 mach grnd speed so far. Wow! Something else I noticed when looking at the flight plan…GIJ VORTAC close to South Bend, In. is named “GIPPER”. Nice to see that someone at the FAA has a sense of humor :slight_smile:
