The Speed War Continues

The top civil aircraft manufacturers are competing once again for the fastest civil aircraft in service. Cessna’s Citation TEN was the fastest aircraft, until Gulfsteam announced the top speed of their soon to be released G650, Mach .925. Cessna quickly reacted with adjustments to their Citation TEN, including additional pounds-per-thrust and additional winglets. These adjustments, among others, has increased the Citation TEN’s top speed to Mach .935, an increase of .010 over Gulfstream’s G650. It is important to note that the G650 has not been officially certified; time will tell if Cessna’s Citation TEN can hold on to the title of the fastest civil aircraft.
