As part of the second generation of the Citation family, the CJ1 offers innovation of the original jet, with notable upgrades in economy and performance, providing a superior travel experience for a small group. This aircraft is extremely fuel efficient and offers luxurious seating for up to five passengers for short-range trips up to three hours. With the comfort of a larger jet combined with the efficiency of a smaller jet, the CJ1 offers an unbeatable executive travel experience.
The Cessna CJ1 provides the comfort and performance expected from an executive aircraft for a small group traveling on a trip of about 1000 miles or three hours. The upgraded wing design of this light aircraft combined with the aerodynamic structure yields high-performance while still maximizing in fuel efficiency. Amazingly, the CJ1 allows for a surprisingly high payload, yet can still take off in as little as 3,080 feet, and is one of the faster light jets. The simple to use, yet technologically-advanced flight system provides the highest reliability and safety. This ease of flight and operability offers more flexible options in travel planning.
A masterful cabin design allows ample space for seating for up to five passengers with the finest finishes and rich details expected from private air travel. The longer cabin area of 11 feet and recessed aisles provide extra headroom and a more spacious feel, combined with Cessna's advanced “acoustic-blanket soundproofing” result in a more comfortable and relaxing experience. The CJ1 provides ample space in three storage compartments for plenty of baggage and skis.
With the combination of economical features, a luxurious and roomy cabin, and flexibility in flight planning, the Cessna CJ1 rivals more expensive aircraft of this size. Perfect for missions such as San Francisco to Seattle or San Jose to Los Angeles with five or fewer passengers, the CJ1 is an ideal choice for a memorable travel experience.
