Rolls-Royce and Cessna celebrated delivery of the 5,000th Citation here yesterday, a Citation X powered by two 6,442-pound-thrust Rolls-Royce AE3007C turbofans. Ian Aitken (right), president of Rolls-Royce Corporate & Regional Aircraft, presented an award to Cessna chairman, president and CEO Jack Pelton at the Rolls-Royce booth. Rolls-Royce is one of three engine manufacturers competing to power Cessna’s large-cabin long-range business jet, currently conceptual but, said Cessna, getting an enthusiastic reception in mockup form.
