Description: The Citation is a family of business jets developed by Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron owned company, to meet the requirements of customers operating from regional to intercontinental routes. Citation jets are powered by two turbofan engines and cruise at high speeds while delivering outstanding comfort to the passengers in their spacious cabins. Cessna has received more than 5,300 Citation jets orders since the program inception in 1975. As of early 2008, the Cessna Citation production models are: CJ1+, CJ2+, CJ3, Encore+, XLS+, X, Sovereign, and Mustang with CJ4 and Columbus models to join Cessna's product line in 2010 and 2014 respectively.

The Cessna CitationJet (CJ) family has been designed for single-pilot operation powered by two Williams International FJ44 engines. The Cessna Citation CJ3 was awarded EASA airworthiness certification on June 16, 2006. It is powered by two Williams FJ44-3A turbofans each rated at 2,820-lb of thrust at takeoff. The CJ3 is equipped with Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite and features the longest range as well as a longer and wider fuselage compared to CJ1 and CJ2 jets. The aircraft has a NBAA IFR Range of 1,875 nautical miles (3,500 km) carrying up to eight passengers.
