When Cessna redesigned their popular CJ1 Private Jet, well known for its low operation costs and high performance it resulted in the CJ2 which subsequently is bigger and also faster than its predecessor and delivered in 2000. The cabin itself is an extra thirty-three inches, wing span stretches an extra thirty five. The fuel burn is significantly reduced with the cruise speed increased by thirty knots compared to the Cessna CJ1.
The design of the Citation Cessna jet series can be summarized in three words, simplicity, economy, and performance. Previous Citations have used a straight wing, which slows the aircraft considerably but reduces production and design costs. The upgraded natural laminar flow wing delays the onset of airflow separation longer, which improves lift-to-drag characteristics ten to fifteen percent when compared to earlier straight-wing designs.
The CJ2 is quite fuel-efficient with an average fuel burn of 140 gallons per hour and this is mainly due to the two Williams/ Rolls Royce FJ44-2C engines chosen by Cessna and they produce a greater thrust of 2,400lbs for take-off.
The CJ2 can take off in 3,420 feet at sea level, or in 5,080 feet on a runway at an altitude of 5,000 feet. It takes seventeen minutes to climb to 37,000 feet with a maximum altitude of 45,000 reachable. Its long range cruise speed is 352 knots however highest speed can reach 407 knots. The cabin’s pressurization system is digitally controlled inside the cabin.
The CJ2 is easy to fly and can be single pilot operated and was designed with the ultimate businessman in mind that could fly himself to and from his business meetings. With the ability to have a single pilot fly the aircraft eliminates the additional costs of a second crew member and other operational costs.
The CJ2 has a significantly increased payload capacity in comparison to the CJ1. Its maximum take-off weight was increased by 770kgs and the maximum fuel weight rose by 350kgs. The alterations result in better maximum range/payload flexibility, offering owners more options in flight planning. The most surprising result of the significant increase in payload is that despite the additional weight, the CJ2 is 30 knots faster than the CJ1 and has a range of 2,700 kms while carrying four passengers.
The cabin typically holds 6 passengers comfortable but can take a maximum of 8 with a total volume of 243 cubic feet. The CJ2 has three baggage compartments which can carry up to 498kgs of luggage all but 100 of these can be stored externally giving a much more comfortable interior cabin. For small flights from Dubai to Jeddah, Abu Dhabi to Kuwait or meetings hopping around the GCC this jet is ideal with its economic savings simplicity and outstanding performance in its category.
