Was there ever a cause found for the reason the first prototype crash? It occured during high speed tests as well.

Fastest light jet. Citation X is not considered a light jet.

The SJ-30 was first announced in 1989. Now 15 years later, it is still not certified.
I wonder if the original customers are getting tired of waiting.

Actually, I think this refers to the SJ30-2, which is a total upgrade to the original SJ30 design. I personally find this aircraft very appealing as an aviation enthusiast. If I had the money, this would be part of my private fleet (along with a Global Express, but I digress).  Big grin
