CITATION CJ2: introduction


The Cessna Citation CJ2 is a lightweight business jet that combines performance and versatility. Embodying efficiency and comfort, the Citation CJ2 has become a preferred choice in the world of business aviation. With its well-designed cabin and powerful engines, the CJ2 remains a benchmark for private owners and operators seeking aerial excellence.

This light jet is a particularly attractive option in terms of price point as well as being offering a very quiet flight experience thanks to the cabin’s soundproofing. The highly comfortable cabin has capacity to carry 5 or 6 passengers with their luggage; it also features a larger hold than the CJ1 offers.

Citation CJ2: a little history


The Citation CJ2 is a landmark development in the Citation family, renowned for its innovation and influence in business aviation. The history of the CJ2 goes back to the beginnings of the Citation series in the early 1970s.

The CJ2 is directly derived from the CitationJet, which was first introduced in 1993. In response to growing demand for light, high-performance business jets, Cessna launched the CJ2 in 1998 as an improved iteration of the original CitationJet. This version introduced significant improvements, including a larger cabin, more powerful engines and enhanced performance.

The CJ2 quickly gained in popularity due to its versatility, its ability to operate on shorter runways, and its competitive operating cost. The combination of these factors helped make the Citation CJ2 a popular choice for private owners and fleet operators alike.

Over the years, the Citation series has continued to evolve with successive updates, but the CJ2 has left a lasting imprint as a high-performance, reliable business aircraft. Its history reflects Cessna’s ongoing commitment to meeting the changing needs of the business aviation market, while maintaining high standards of quality, comfort and performance.
