Mid-size performance in a light package


Citation CJ3+

Specs, operating costs & information



Cessna originally unveiled the CJ3 in 2004 and was rebranded as the CJ3+ ten years later. The CJ3 and CJ3+ holds 6 passengers in club-style seating with an option for a belted lavatory for a total of 7 in the main cabin. Up front, the CJ3+ is built for a single-pilot environment, making the co-pilot seat available for one more passenger.


The CJ3 boasts impressive performance numbers for speed, takeoff/landing rolls and range and is closely matched with its competitor, the Phenom 300, at nearly every mark. The Williams FJ44 engines give the CJ3+ a takeoff distance of just 3,200 ft., matched with a range just over 2,000 nautical miles and a max cruise speed of 416 KTS. Those numbers are very attractive to any buyer needing mid-size performance in an economical package.
