A private jet delivering proven performance and comfort, the Cessna Citation CJ1 is ideal for shorter treks and longer regional trips alike.

It quickly became one of Cessna’s most popular aircraft after its introduction in 2000 and nearly two decades after entering the market, it remains a favorite for simple business travel and private charters.

For travelers seeking jet performance with greater economic efficiencies, the CJ1 truly delivers maximum value. It seats up to five passengers and flies at a top speed of 327 knots per hour (376 mph), with a nonstop range of 1,1000 nautical miles.

This straight-wing jet also has clearance to land in shorter runways often found in smaller airports and FBOs, making it ideal for travelers who want to land even closer to their remote destinations.

Approximately 200 CJ1 jets were manufactured by Cessna between 2000 and 2005, and almost all remain in operation. The plane traces its lineage back to Cessna’s groundbreaking Model 525 Citation Jet lineup, which transformed the industry by creating an entirely new aircraft category: The light jet.

The Citation Jet was designed to connect more travelers than ever before with the benefits of flying private, and its variants are still manufactured today.

Citation CJ1 Interior

The Citation CJ1 is one of the most relied upon light jets for air charter service, primarily due to its comfortable and well-equipped interior1. The cabin features standard club seating for five passengers (with an additional enclosed lavatory area), delivering a total 1,400-pound maximum payload capacity.

If you’re heading on an adventure with a small group, pack generously: The CJ1 offers two separate storage compartments ready to handle any extras like golf clubs and skis: One in the rear cabin area, and a nose compartment on the exterior, totaling approximately 120 cubic feet of space.

Many of the CJ1 jets operating today are modernized, furnished with contemporary elements like refreshment centers, folding tables, and updated woodwork. They’ve also been equipped with tech features that make it easy to stay connected during a flight, such as USB chargers and WiFi.

The flight deck is powered by the Collins Aerospace Pro Line 21 avionics package, with next-generation features designed to increase situational awareness for pilots. One of the features, the Pro Line 21 Synthetic Vision System (SVS), allows pilots to clearly view terrain ahead, even when flying in low visibility areas.

Whether you’re heading to meet new clients or your next vacation, the CJ1 is a dependable option if you’re seeking economic efficiency without compromising comfort and convenience.

The commercial options for 4 people and trade show luggage from Long Beach to San Luis Obispo... lordy... This made it an incredible no-brainer, as Linear Air actually came in *cheaper* than the commercial options. We would have had to stay an extra night, then either get up to LAX for a late afternoon direct flight, or down to SNA for an early morning connection through PHX.
