Cessna Citation CJ4

Cessna Citation CJ4 VIP JetThe Cessna Citation CJ4 is the latest addition to the CitationJet family of twin turbofan light business jets.  Following on the heels of the highly successful CJ2 and stretched CJ3, Cessna introduced the CJ4 in 2006 as a stretched CJ3 with more power, redesigned cabin, and state-of-the-art technological advancements.  While its performance in terms of range is not an improvement over the CJ3, its speed, spacious cabin, and advanced technology offer the passengers and operators several advantages over earlier models.

The main alteration on the CJ4 is the new wing design.  It is shorter than the wing used on the CJ3 but can carry more fuel and create less drag.  The redesigned wing combined with the powerful FJ44-4A engines permit operations on short airfields and allow the aircraft to reach cruising altitude in record time.  Its cruising speed is 40mph faster than the CJ3 while the range is similar or slightly less.

As with all CJs, the CJ4 is single-pilot certified.   And, as with the CJ3, the engines are equipped with full-authority digital engine controls (FADEC), which improves fuel efficiency and simplifies engine control and operation.

Passengers will enjoy the redesigned cabin which employs clever use of seamless wall panels, mirrors and indirect lighting to make the already sizable cabin seem even more spacious.   However, it’s not just a sense of extra space that the CJ4 delivers, passengers enjoy  big, ergonomically designed seating, entertainment, the latest technology, and plenty of space to move about the cabin.  As Cessna describes their new jet:  “..the new CJ4 takes all the things you’ve come to know and love about the CJ family and elevates them to entirely new levels.”
