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.

Improved speed and simplicity describe the new Garmin G3000 avionics suite in the Cessna Citation CJ3+ jet. Brand new hardware and software mean significant speed and resolution enhancements. Not only is the display resolution greatly improved for operators, but the system boots up, processes and loads databases faster than ever before, reducing the time you spend managing the flight deck and increasing the amount of time you can enjoy the thrill of flight.

Reliability and Awareness

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

The system is powered by the Garmin GFC700, a control system that has flight director, autopilot, yaw damper, and features that provide top-level performance. The GFC700 allows for outstanding flight automation and precision. The AP maximizes aircraft performance with precise lateral and vertical navigation guidance for all phases of flight. It can maintain altitude, airspeed, vertical speed and heading, in addition to flying VNAV descent profiles, automated Takeoff/Go-Around procedures and more.

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

Real-time Diagnostics. Real-time answers.

LINXUS is compatible on the Citation CJ3+ jet when equipped with the Garmin GDL59 (Wi-Fi Datalink) and Garmin GSR56 (Iridium Satellite Receiver). LinxUs and LinxUs Air work with the Central Diagnostics Maintenance system (CDMS) and function as a fault-isolation system that monitors the aircraft 100 percent of the time. In the event of an onboard issue, actionable answers are provided in real time, resulting in faster turnaround to get the aircraft back in the air.

LinxUs – reports issues upon landing with a Wifi connection.
LinxUs Air – reports issues in flight via satellite (For aircraft equipped with GSR56).
