When creating the Cessna Citation CJ2, engineers focused on what was most important: designing an aircraft that was the perfect combination of safety, performance, and economy wrapped in a body with crisp, clean lines. And they achieved it.
The twin-engine aircraft is prized for its simple avionics system as well as the multiple user-friendly automated systems. These features maximise safety and allow the Cessna CJ2 to fly with a single pilot reducing flight costs and allowing more options in flight operations.
- The CJ2’s power comes from two Williams International FJ44-2C turbofan engines. These engines deliver 2,400 lbs. of thrust on take-off and are fuel-efficient using just 530 litres of fuel per hour.
- A relatively short runway of 1050 metres allows the Citation plenty of space to take off and adds smaller airports to the list of potential jumping off points for flights.
- The aircraft’s maximum certified flight ceiling is 45,000 feet, and the CJ2 climbs to a comfortable altitude of 37,000 feet in roughly 17 minutes.
- The jet has a long-range cruise speed of 652 km/h, and its high-speed cruise speed is 754 km/h.
The Citation also features digitally controlled pressurisation systems. The system maintains a cabin pressure equal to that of sea-level even when the jet is at an altitude of 23,586 feet. The cabin holds six passengers comfortably, and its volume is 243 cubic feet. A seventh passenger may ride in the cockpit with the pilot since a second pilot is optional. Passengers have plenty of storage space as the three storage compartments can hold a combined 500 kg of luggage or cargo.
When it comes to a safe and comfortable aircraft for commercial business use, the Citation CJ2 meets and exceeds expectations. Whatever your requirements, this well-appointed jet can become the a means to advance your business and commercial needs by offering time saving, affordability and flexibility which inevitably leads to an increase in productivity.
