Key Features of the Citation CJ3

Although most travelers interested in the CJ3 are primarily interested in its impressive performance characteristics coupled with its extreme economical value, the interior cabin of this light business jet is surprisingly charming and comfortable. It can fly its maximum range of 1,875 miles with a typical four passenger seating configuration, but can also accommodate a maximum of eight passengers in a higher-density seating arrangement. Fourteen side windows provide ample natural lighting during daytime flights and thoughtful placement of LEDs serves to create a roomier atmosphere throughout the entirety of the cabin. Other standard but important features include folding worktables and power outlets, which are accessible throughout the interior. As always, when it comes to providing simple, yet charming high-performance business jet solutions, nobody beats Cessna's Citation Jet series. The CJ3's economy is rivaled only by its reliability, making the CJ3 the optimal choice for any value-conscious private traveler.

Capabilities of the Citation CJ3

When compared to the fifth generation Citation Jet, the CJ2, the CJ3 has notable improvements evident in several aspects of the aircraft. Primarily, the CJ3 is larger, faster, and altogether superior to the CJ2, including a longer cabin, wider wings, higher cruising speeds, and of course, greater fuel efficiency. With two Williams/Rolls-Royce FJ44-3A turbofans, Cessna has once again chosen the optimal engines to support maximum fuel economy and efficiency. As a result, the CJ3 has notably low operating costs, which of course, is invaluable to virtually anyone interested in the aircraft. Similar to the improved version of the CJ2 (the CJ2+), the CJ3 utilizes state-of-the-art natural laminar flow wings, which facilitate superior performance, all while still being economical in terms of production costs, and by extension, operating costs. Combining its stringent and unwavering dedication to maximizing economy with its impressive short runway and high payload capabilities, the CJ3 is as diverse and versatile as it is efficient.
