Jet Linx Fleet Spotlight: Citation CJ2

The most requested private jet type in the Jet Linx fleet, Light Jets offer fast and comfortable transport for as many as seven passengers looking to travel to regional destinations.

Extremely well-suited for business travel, Light Jets bring the flexibility to land at nearly any airport, making them a great choice for those remote family getaways. If you’re seeking the right blend of range, comfort, cost, and availability – then a Light Jet may be right for you.

The Cessna Citation family of private jets has a rich history that spans several decades, making it one of the most renowned and extensive lines of business aircraft in the world. The story begins in the late 1960s when Cessna, a well-established aircraft manufacturer, recognized the growing demand for smaller, more cost-effective private jets. Cessna’s line of Citation CJ Light Jets now stretches across nine different variants: CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, CJ2, CJ2+, CJ3, CJ3+, CJ4, and M2 with more than 2,000 aircraft in service.

The Cessna Citation CJ2 emerges as a top choice, combining exceptional capabilities with a sleek design and cutting-edge technology. Offering a seamless and reliable flying experience, the CJ2 has become a favorite among Jet Card Members and Aircraft Owners who value range, performance, and operating economics.

The CJ2 is an upgraded version of the Citation Jet and CJ1. These aircraft laid the foundation for the CJ2, which debuted in 2000. With a stretched cabin and greater wingspan, the CJ2 benefits from longer range and added payload capacity. The unique T-tail design adds to the stability and performance of the aircraft, earning it a reputation as one of the most reliable Light Jets on the market. A total of 243 Citation CJ2 aircraft were built from 2000 to 2006 with seven retired. The CJ2+ was the follow-up aircraft that started production in 2005 and ended in 2016.

The CJ2 is powered by two Williams-Rolls FJ44-2C turbofan engines, delivering an impressive maximum cruise speed of approximately 480 mph. Its agility and remarkable short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities make it versatile and adaptable, allowing access to a wide range of airports including those with shorter runways.

Whether you’re touching down in bustling urban centers or remote destinations, the CJ2’s performance capabilities ensure a smooth and efficient journey. With a fuel burn of 140 gallons per hour, it’s also quite fuel efficient. Possible nonstop city pairs include Washington D.C. to Denver, Seattle to Tulsa, or Chicago to New York.

Stepping inside the cabin, it offers simplicity, economy, and comfort. The cabin can comfortably seat up to six passengers within its 248-cubic-foot interior, with seats typically laid out in club arrangement with two forward-facing seats. Three different baggage compartments offer enough space to carry 1,100 pounds of luggage, while making room for passengers to bring small bags on board for quick access. The cabin’s pressurization systems are all controlled digitally and maintains sea level pressure at more than 23,000 feet.

The Cessna Citation CJ2 sets new standards for operational efficiency and ease of use. With its simple avionics suite, the aircraft was designed for businessmen to fly themselves, or for single pilots to operate the aircraft. The CJ2 incorporates cutting-edge technology, enabling precise navigation and reducing pilot workload. The aircraft’s systems are designed for efficient performance, contributing to lower fuel consumption and reduced emissions, aligning with environmental sustainability goals. Aircraft Owners and Jet Card Members seeking the most economic performance would be pleased with the CJ2.

For those looking for efficient and simple performance, the CJ2 is a winner. Offering more range and a faster cruise speed than its predecessor, and at a lower operating cost, it meets the highest expectations of Jet Linx Members and Aircraft Owners.
