Citation CJ2

Specs, operating costs & information



The first CJ2 was delivered by Cessna in 2000 as a stretched and more powerful version of the popular CJ1. The CJ2 was a great balance of speed and comfort that drew a middle market of those needing more than a CJ1 and less than the hefty CJ3. CJ2 typically holds 8-9 passengers (plus a pilot) and has a maximum range of 1,613 miles (respectable for the class), and a high-speed cruise setting of 407 knots.


After delivering nearly 300 unites Cessna rebranded the CJ2 as the CJ2+ while adding FADEC engine controls and the advanced Garmin G3000. These moves focused on the pilot-operator, in typical Cessna fashion, by reducing pilot workload with class-leading avionics. The CJ2 has a great track record and has been a favorite among owner-operators and will continue for years to come.
