Private Aircraft Citation CJ1 Light Jet – History and Highlights

Book your private flight on a Citation CJ1 from Cessna of Wichita, Kansas by calling Charter Flight Group. With over 30 years experience providing private jets to destinations both foreign and domestic, Charter Flight Group can provide both the right charter aircraft for all your private flight needs as well as the kind of world-class service you would expect.

The CJ1 was developed by Cessna Aircraft Company in response to a demand for light, efficient, more cost-effective private charter jets which would be ideal for short trips by clients preferring jet travel over turboprop aircraft. The basis for the Citation CJ1 was the Model 525 CitationJet originally launched in 1989.

The first delivery of the Citation was on March 30, 1993 with several adaptations soon to follow. The first was the CJ1.

The CJ1 provides the same core features as its predecessor, but with a newer EFIA avionics and slightly better takeoff weight. Some of the standard features include a crew of 1, which reduces the overall cost to operate, acoustic-blanket soundproofing to provide an incredibly quiet flight, and a belted potty lavatory which can provide additional seating for your executive assistant.
