Angel MedFlight Acquires Citation X


Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance has added the world's fastest civilian jet to its fleet. This will facilitate travel to many more parts of the globe and help more patients experience our unparalleled care.

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB)  - Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance welcomed yesterday the newest addition to its fleet of state-of-the-art jets -- the Cessna Citation X. The twin-engine aircraft was acquired in Corvallis, Ore., and flew in Thursday morning to Scottsdale Municipal Airport.

The Citation X is the world's fastest civilian airplane reaching speeds up to Mach 0.935, which is just shy of the sound barrier. "With a range of 3,242 nautical miles and a seating capacity of 9 people, this aircraft is the Rolls-Royce of the fleet, literally," said Angel MedFlight spokesperson Kelly LoCascio. The Citation X is powered by two turbo fan Rolls-Royce engines and can climb to 51,000 feet.

With increased range and speed, the Citation X facilitates travel to Hawaii, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, meaning even more patients worldwide will be able to receive Angel MedFlight's unparalleled air ambulance service.

Angel MedFlight estimates having the Citation X ready for patient transport by the end of the summer.
