Cessna has announced a new model for its extensive Citation product line, the CJ3+.
The new CJ3+ will feature a fully integrated Garmin G3000 avionics suite, new interiors with a redesigned cabin and cockpit, and new pressurisation and diagnostics systems.
“The CJ3+ is another example of how Cessna listens to customers to deliver an aircraft that meets their aviation needs now and in the future,” Kriya Shortt, Cessna’s SVP Sales and Marketing, said in a statement. “Customers are already pleased with the CJ-series, but they also appreciate the new features of the G3000 system. Combining all these avionics features with a fresh new interior and other significant upgrades strengthens an already powerful jet and makes its value proposition even more compelling for customers.”
The Garmin G3000 provides improved turbulence detecting weather radar, TCAS II, advanced Terrain Awareness Warning Systems (TAWS), a wireless media server, Garmin integrated cockpit and cabin Iridium phone, and high speed internet capabilities from Aircell.
The nine-seat CJ3+ is expected to receive FAA certification during the second half of 2014.
