5 of April 2021  marked the delivery of the 600th aircraft from the Cessna Citation CJ3 family. The milestone Cessna Citation CJ3+ was delivered to an unnamed customer in North America. Lannie O4Bannion, senior vice president, Global Sales and Flight Operations commented: The CJ3+ remains a strong performer due to its versatility as COVID-19 limitations have prompted customers to look for alternatives to commercial travel. 

“Since joining the Citation family, the Citation CJ3 series has proven to be an incredible performer for customers around the world with the connectivity, price, range and efficient operation that puts it at the top of its category,” said Lannie O’Bannion, senior vice president, Global Sales and Flight Operations. “The CJ3+ remains a strong performer due to its versatility as COVID-19 limitations have prompted customers to look for alternatives to commercial travel.” 

This aircraft features a fresh air system to keep cabin air clean, bringing fresh air from outside into the aircraft through the engines. The engines compress and heat the air eliminating pathogens and germs. The air is then cooled and enters the cabin as cold or warm air, depending on passenger preference.

The Citation CJ3+ boasts the latest technology in the cabin and cockpit providing both unrivalled comfort and productivity for passengers, and intuitive, efficient operation for either single-pilot operation – perfect for owner-operators – or traditional two-pilot operations. 

About the Citation CJ3+

The single-pilot Citation CJ3+ delivers exceptional performance, G3000 avionics and high-speed internet capabilities.  Best-in-class acquisition and operating costs, seating for nine passengers, and up to 1,000 lb of baggage capacity make the CJ3+ the ultimate utility player.

With a range of up to 2,040 nautical miles, the Citation CJ3+ is perfectly suited for the light jet market segment and can fly single-pilot and up to four passengers nonstop from Washington, D.C. to Mexico City; from London to Moscow; from Shanghai to Bangkok; or from Lima to São Paulo.

Designed to provide the most efficient flight profile by minimizing fuel costs and environmental impact, the Citation CJ3+ burns, on average, 10 percent less fuel and costs 5 percent less in maintenance per flight hour versus other aircraft in the light jet segment.

Leading the light jet segment

Cessna Citations continue to lead this segment, with more than 5,000 light jets delivered throughout the world, offering customers the broadest range of products on the market. From the popular entry level Cessna Citation M2, to the efficiency and comfort of the CJ3+ and the newly introduced CJ4 Gen2, Textron Aviation’s Citation family of light business jets has evolved to offer a range of capabilities, systems and options unmatched in its class.
