Control At Your Fingertips

Pilot-focused flight deck

The enhanced Intrinzic™ flight deck powered by Garmin® G3000™ provides touch screen controls and large format displays which provide pilots optimal awareness.  Ingress and Egress is easier with a smaller pedestal and more room.

Diagnose and maintain

The CJ3+ is equipped with a fully digital, dual-channel autopilot system (AP) equipped with many features for added safety, redundancy, and reliability. Integrating data from the avionics system, the AP is built to inspire confidence while ensuring optimum smoothness and comfort.

The system is powered by the Garmin GFC 700 scalable architecture and uses prestored airspeed-limit data along with autopilot gains that are scheduled to optimize performance to offer excellent stability and control. The AP maximizes aircraft performance with precise lateral and vertical navigation guidance for all phases of flight. It can maintain attitude, altitude, airspeed, vertical speed, and heading, in addition to flying VNAV descent profiles, automated Takeoff/Go-Around procedures, and more.

The CJ3+’s AP system is simple and straightforward to operate yet sophisticated and state-of-the-art, which makes flying the CJ3+ easier, safer, more consistent, and more enjoyable.
