The Cessna Citation XLS was evolved from the Citation Excel (Model 560XL) and is a turbofan-powered, medium-sized business jet built by the Cessna Aircraft Company in Wichita, Kansas. Rather than being a direct variant of another Citation airframe, the Excel was a combination of technologies and designs. To produce the Excel, Cessna took the X's wide, stand-up cabin fuselage, shortened it by about 21 feet and mated it with an unswept wing utilizing a supercritical airfoil (based on the Citation V Ultra's wing) and the tail from the Citation V. The Citation XLS was the first "makeover" that the Excel received. Upgrades included a glass cockpit and upgraded engines which increased performance.
