Cessna 525 CJ1


Cessna's new CitationJet made its first flight on 29 April 1991 from Wichita, powered by two Williams-Rolls FJ44 advanced turbo-fan engines; claimed as providing all the benefits of a turbofan at more favourable economics than a turboprop. The six passenger, T-tailed fanjet is the first business jet to use a true natural laminar-flow wing which assists with achieving a 437 mph cruise over a maximum range of over 1,500 nm - 10 percent further than the Citation 1, using 19 percent less fuel. At 10,000 lbs, the takeoff weight of the CitationJet is nearly a ton lighter than the Citation 1 and should be able to take-off from runways as short as 2960 feet. Cessna forecast 1000 deliveries over the next ten years following FAA certification in late 1992. The 1,900 lbs thrust FJ44 engine is the result of co-operation between Williams International and Rolls-Royce.


The Citation Jet (with 360 sales) remained Cessna’s entry level jet until 2000 when, with top of the range avionics and slightly increased take-off weight, the Citation CJ1 entered production, certified for single pilot operation.

The Citation CJ1+ was first announced in 2004 and October 2004 marked the first flight.


The Citation CJ2, was Cessna's response to customer requests for an improved CitationJet with higher cruise speeds, more cabin room and greater range, made its first flight ahead of schedule on April 27, 1999. Powered by a pair of Williams-Rolls FJ44-2C engines, the CJ2 prototype took off from Wichita's McConnell Air Force Base and flew a 65-minute test program, after which it landed at Mid-Continent Airport where Cessna's main facility is located. During the flight the CJ2 climbed to 10,500 feet, where it performed stability and control tests, including cycling the gear, flaps and speeds.

The new CJ2 delivers cruise speeds of up to 400 knots (460 mph). A range of more than 1,935 statute miles, and the freedom to get in and out of runways shorter than 3,500 feet.


The Citation CJ2+ was first announced in 2004 and the first delivery was in 2006.
