At the top of the single-pilot class, the CESSNA CITATION CJ4 jet redefines versatility for a light jet. The CJ4 aircraft has added speed, range and cabin size over its predecessor without incurring midsize jet operating costs.

For corporate flight departments and owner-operators alike, this CITATION jet meets the need for midsize comfort. Its versatile cabin features room for ten passengers, trackable seats, individual climate control and high-definition entertainment. A refreshment center, retractable tables and abundant storage round out the comfortable jet.

The COLLINS AEROSPACE PRO LINE 21 avionics suite allows a single pilot to effectively operate the CJ4 aircraft. Features such as single point refueling, an externally serviceable lavatory and excellent range deliver what crew and cabin passengers appreciate.

This aircraft features a Fresh Air System to keep cabin air clean. This system operates by bringing fresh air from outside into the aircraft through the engines. The engines compress and heat the air killing pathogens and germs. The air is then cooled and enters the cabin as cold or warm air before exiting aft.

Soaring Good Looks

When designing the CJ4, our engineers moved the main landing gear inboard, reducing the track.  A narrower track makes all aspects of ground handling smoother.  The same long-stroke, trailing-link landing gear common to all CJs guarantees the softest landings and smooth taxiing.
