The CJ3 is the sixth generation of the well known Citation series, a class of high performance and economical business jets. Business jet users enjoy the simplicity of the CJ3 which offers both performance and reliability.
The CJ3 jet is known for being the largest, fastest, most advanced aircraft of its kind. The CJ3 is a much bigger, faster, and better business jet than the CJ2. The cabin is larger by 2 extra feet, and the wingspan was widened by 3 feet. The CJ3 is extremely fuel-efficient, burning aproximately 150 gallons per hour. This is due to Cessna's choice of engines, the Williams/Rolls-Royce FJ44-3A turbofans, delivering 2,780 lbs. of thrust each during takeoff.
Its maximum take-off weight was increased to 13,870 pounds, and the maximum fuel weight rose to 4,710 pounds. These changes resulted in improved maximum range/payload. The cabin can hold 8 passengers and is equipped with several 110-volt AC power outlets and folding writing tables.
