The Cessna Citation CJ3 is an American turbofan-powered light corporate jets built by the Cessna Aircraft Company in Wichita, Kansas. The Citation brand of business jets encompasses seven distinct "families" of aircraft. The Model 525 CitationJet was the basis for one of these families, which encompasses the CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, CJ2, CJ2+, CJ3, and CJ4 models.
The Cessna Citation CJ3 (Model 525B) is a stretch extension of the CJ2, which itself was a stretch of the CJ1. The aircraft was unveiled in September 2002 at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention. It took its first and second flight on the same day on April 17, 2003. It was FAA certified in October 2004 and delivery of the CJ3 began in December of that year.
The CJ3\'s cabin comes standard with six club seats in a center-style configuration, although it is customizable to the owner\'s specs. The cockpit was originally designed for a single-pilot operation, but it can accommodate up to two crew members. It has external baggage access for added convenience and a cabin baggage compartment which is accessible in flight. The CJ3 also features a trailing-link tricycle landing gear.
