Engineered for precise handling, superior performance, and aerodynamic prowess, the CJ3 features a new, wider-span, natural-laminar-flow wing design as well as a roomier cabin, longer range, greater speed, faster climb, and optimized fuel efficiency. Operating this single-pilot certified-lightweight jet is so intuitive, it has pilots and passengers alike falling, or flying, in love with private air travel anew. Not all jets are distinguished as “Best of the Best,” but the CJ3 is. The Robb Report editors selected the Cessna Citation CJ3 as “Best of the Best Business Aircraft Light.”

Powerplant

Two, dual-channel FADEC-controlled, Williams FJ44-3A turbofan engines are installed on the CJ3. The engine is a medium-bypass, twin-spool design with five compression stages and three turbine stages. It produces 2,820 pounds (12.54 kN) of thrust at sea level, static conditions, flat-rated up to 79°F (26°C). The FADEC system also provides time-limited dispatch, diagnostics, and engine synchronization.

  • Manufacturer: Williams International
