Replacing the original Citation I, the Cessna CitationJet was an all-new light jet with a range of up to 1,285nm. Powered by two FJ44-1A turbofans and featuring EFIS avionics, this jet is certified for single pilot ops. The cabin offers a lowered aisle for increased height.

Cessna CitationJet Snapshot
By Matt Harris
The CitationJet is a Light Jet produced by Cessna that typically seats five passengers. It was manufactured between 1993 and 1999, and Cessna built 359 units during that time (per JETNET data). According to Aircraft Bluebook’s Summer 2022 price data, the average price for a CitationJet ranges between $1.25m (1993 model) and $1.65m (1999 model).
What makes the CitationJet stand out?
The CitationJet set the bar lower for business jet ownership when it replaced the Citation I. With operating costs similar to a mid-size twin-engine turboprop, it offers reliable and predictable handling qualities and is certified for single pilot operations. The 1,130nm-range CitationJet is lighter and quicker than its predecessor, and is powered by twin Williams FJ44-1A engines.
