The most noticeable difference between Light Jets and Mid-Size Jets is cabin height. Mid-Size Jets typically feature cabin heights of over five and a half feet which is considered a “stand-up cabin”. The increased cabin height makes Mid-Size Jets like the Hawker 850XP and Cessna Citation XLS+ popular choices for on-demand charter customers on longer flights. Like Light Jets, Mid Jets are generally configured to seat seven or eight passengers. All Mid-Size Jets feature a fully enclosed lavatory for complete privacy, and they typically fly at a cruise speed around 450 knots (518 mph).

The Cessna Citation XLS is an improved version of the highly successful Citation 650 model originally developed by Cessna in the early 1980’s. The XLS+ can take off on runways as short as 3,560 feet – one of the shortest takeoff distances of any mid jet. Overall, Cessna’s Citation XLS sets the bar for comfort, performance, and reliability in a mid-sized jet.
