Cessna Citation CJ3 Jet Overview

By Gerrard Cowan - Editor, Aircraft Reviews

Today, the aircraft continues to find buyers on the pre-owned market, with orders placed by a variety of customers across many different sectors.

The 1,890nm-range, FJ44-3A powered Cessna Citation CJ3 offers over two feet of additional cabin length over the CJ2, and comes standard with six club seats in a center-style configuration. Designed for single-pilot ops, the flight deck incorporates a modern avionics suite, while a cabin baggage compartment is accessible in flight.

What features does the Cessna Citation CJ3 offer?

The Citation CJ3 can travel up to 1,890nm (flying single-pilot), or about 1,665nm with two pilots, full fuel, four passengers, and their baggage. The jet is powered by two Williams International FJ44-3A engines, and has over two feet of extra cabin length when compared with the smaller Citation CJ2 jet.

Offering a standard six-passenger seats, the Cessna Citation CJ3 also has a maximum cruise speed of 417 knots at 33,000ft altitude. Standard avionics include a Collins FMS-3000 suite, digital comm and nav radios, and much more.

What came before and after the Cessna Citation CJ3?

The Citation CJ3 followed the Citation CJ2, which was produced in the early 2000s. The Citation CJ2 features Williams FJ44-2C engines and offers a range of about 1,500nm with four passengers. So, in addition to its longer cabin, the Citation CJ3 offers more range.

After more than a decade in production, the Citation CJ3 was further enhanced with the launch of the Cessna Citation CJ3+, which replaced and remained in production at Textron Aviation at the time of writing.
