A higher residual value is the expected outcome of CitationPartners having transformed your Excel/XLS into an Excel Eagle. In its Value Reference Guide, VREF reflects the Citation Excel Eagle as a stand-alone model that has a value $1.9M higher than the standard version of the Excel/XLS.
Your Citation Excel/XLS is the perfect candidate for a transformation unlike any other.
The Excel was the first mid-size business jet that was not only highly affordable but offered exceptional versatility, short field performance, low cost of operation and the spaciousness of a stand-up cabin. Because of such a positive response from the marketplace, Cessna took 200 orders prior to the first Excel customer delivery.
More than 1,100 Excel/XLSs are in active service worldwide, far more than any other model. The Citation XLS+ is still being produced by Textron Aviation and will continue to be a leading member of the Citation product line.
This translates to future parts and technical support for your Citation Excel Eagle.
