The total annual budget for flying a Citation X private jet 200 hours per year is approximately $1,075,202 or $1,688,733 for flying 400 hours per year. The maximum speed of the Citation X is 604 mph, but with slower climb, cruise and descending speeds it is more likely to average 483 mph which would equate to an average cost per mile of approximately $11.13 at 200 hours per year. If you fly 400 hours per year, you can spread the total fixed costs over more flight hours which reduces your cost per mile to $8.74.
These budgets do not include the cost to purchase the jet, depreciation or the cost of capital (interest payments.)
