Textron Aviation unveils the Citation CJ4 Gen2, the next generation

Along with the new cabin seating options, there is enhanced lighting in the pockets, on the sidewall and floor, and in the cupholders. This is the first Citation aircraft equipped with CoolView lavatory skylights to provide more natural lighting throughout the lavatory and aft cabin area. Operators can choose the jet’s Premier Collection design option, which also offers a completely new lavatory vanity and sink.

The aircraft offers an upgraded wireless cabin management system consisting of an onboard media server with the ability to stream preloaded audio and video files, access XM Satellite Radio and view moving maps. As part of the new system, passengers can also wirelessly control cabin lighting, window shades and temperature from their own mobile devices while productivity is powered by the USB charging ports at each cabin seat.

“At Textron Aviation, we are constantly reviewing our aircraft, taking customer feedback and investing in our product lineup to ensure we stay ahead of evolving trends and support our customers as they experience first-class flight, total cabin comfort, and flexibility, making their aircraft the most productive place in the sky,” said Tannahill.

Class-leading performance

The Cessna Citation CJ4 Gen2 allows customers to go further with the light jet segment’s leading range-to-payload ratio and a best-in-class IFR range of 1,926 nautical miles (3,567 km) with a maximum cruise speed of 451 knots. The single-pilot certified jet combines superior speed, range and operating economics when compared with larger aircraft, making it the ideal platform for owner/operators or corporate missions. The CJ4 Gen2 has seating for up to ten passengers and includes a notable 1,040-pound baggage capacity.

Leading the light jet segment

Cessna Citation jets continue to lead the light jet segment, with more than 5,000 aircraft delivered worldwide, offering customers the broadest range of options on the market. From the popular Cessna Citation M2, to the upgraded efficiency and comfort of the CJ3+ and the leading CJ4 Gen2, the Citation family of light business jets has evolved to offer a range of capabilities, systems and options unmatched in the industry.
