Cessna Citation CJ1+

The CJ1+ is the new generation of the extremely successful Citation series. It comes with all advantages that the original Citation Jet offered but with improvements in economy and performance. Its status as the new generation Citation gives the advantage of using a private jet design that has been tested and modified to exceed the success of the first model the Citation Jet.

The design goals of the Citation Jet can be summed up in three words: simplicity economy and performance. The Citation Jet upgraded to a natural laminar flow wing, which took four years to design in a joint venture between Cessna and NASA. This wing delays the onset of airflow separation longer, improving the lift-to-drag characteristics ten to fifteen percent when compared to earlier straight-wing designs.

The CJ1+ is extremely fuel-efficient, burning an average of 134 gallons per hour. The economy of its fuel burn can be largely attributed to Cessna's choice of engines. It uses two Williams/Rolls-Royce FJ44-1A turbofans, each of which delivers 1,900 pounds of thrust on takeoff.

The CJ1+ is extremely easy to fly and can be single-pilot operated. The Citation line was designed for forward-thinking businessmen that would fly their own private jets to and from business meetings, resulting in several automated systems and a simple avionics system.

Most owners, know the economical features of the CJ1+, are surprised at how comfortable it is. Seats are available for five passengers and the full-length dropped aisle gives the cabin a roomier feel. The double-sealed door uses a fastening system similar to that of a vault which reduces cabin noise.
