400th Citation CJ3 rolls off Wichita production line

The 400th Cessna CJ3 rolled off the production line in Wichita, Kansas, on 25 March, about eight years after the light business jet entered service.

The CJ3 is a member of the 20-year-old Citation Jet family - also referred to as the Model 525 series. It is positioned between the in-service CJ2+ and Cessna's top-of-the-range light jet, the CJ4. Flightglobal's Ascend Online Fleets database records an installed base of 394 CJ3s worldwide, of which 10 are parked. Cessna delivered 21 of the eight seat-types last year, 22 in 2011 and 20 in 2010.

The CJ3 IS powered by two Williams FJ44-3A engines, has a maximum range of 3,470km (1,875nm), a flight ceiling of 45,000ft (13,725m) and is certificated for single pilot operations.
