I just took an island hop in a Citation X from HNL
to KOA, and on takeoff, it sure as hell felt like there were afterburners! I guess since I was the only passenger, we were pretty light. I swear we reached VR
in less than 15 seconds and were rocketing up like an F-16. Before takeoff, I asked the Captain what she was capable of and DAMN! Did he show me!
Nothing like cruising island to island at 13,000 ft and at 500 mph.
Definitely, my favorite in bizjet.
