At the risk of stating the obvious, the CJ1+ is the enhanced version of the CJ1. Most private jets that are recreated in a “bigger and better” design are nearly identical to the original jets. The CJ1+ is no exception to this rule, but it does have some valuable upgrades.
The already-low operating cost of the CJ1 was slashed to become the lowest operating cost of any comparable turboprop, and small upgrades on the engines and the increase of usable payload make a big difference.
The CJ1+ is an extremely fuel-efficient private jet, burning an average of 132 gallons per hour, fuel consumption slightly lower than the CJ1, even though the CJ1+ has a slightly higher payload than the original CJ1.
Another of the CJ1+’s strong points also contributes to its low operating cost: the simplicity (but reliability) of its flight systems. Its cockpit has been significantly improved from the CJ1 to offer the latest technology for situational awareness.
The CJ1+ is designed to be as easy to fly as possible. Many of its systems are automatic, from deicing to cabin pressurization.
The full-width aft lavatory has an internally serviced, flushing toilet, but most aircraft only have a privacy curtain rather than solid lavatory doors.
The benefit of having such simple operational requirements is that it this private jet can generally be operated by a single pilot, which provides excellent flexibility in flight operations.
Despite the CJ1+’s economy in flight, it allows for a surprisingly high payload. Its three baggage compartments can carry a total of 832 pounds of luggage. The CJ1+ was specifically designed to be able to easily operate from a 4,000 foot runway under the most difficult conditions – high temperature and elevation, and maximum loading capacity.
The cabin of the CJ1+ is almost identical to that of the CJ1. It holds five seats in a club arrangement, with one side-facing seat. Like its predecessor, it has a fully-enclosed lavatory, small galley, and fold-out work tables. Increased soundproofing techniques make flights quieter. Entertainment systems can be added as desired.
The CJ1+ is ideal for small companies and individuals looking for an economical private jet for short-range missions, usually a little over one hour. Possible nonstop flights with maximum passengers include Los Angeles to Aspen and Washington, D.C. to Miami. Go directly to this page at centaljetcharter.com/citation-cj1-plus.html which can be chartered for $2,800 an hour and up.
The third-generation Citation Jet, built from mid-2005 to late 2010, has FADEC-equipped engines with slightly more thrust, increased operating weights and an upgraded interior compared to the CJ1.
Cessna only built 102 CJ1+ (s.n. 525-0600 to -0701) because the Great Recession, along with fierce competition from the larger and less expensive Embraer Phenom 100, forced it out of production.
On the pre-owned market, the aircraft now sells for $2.0 million to $3.0 million, or more, depending upon the year, usage and condition.
Typically equipped, these aircraft can carry four occupants 1,300 nm at high-speed cruise and land with 100-nm NBAA IFR reserves.
Short field performance long has been a strong suit of Citations and the CJ1+ does not disappoint.
The CJ1+ needs only 3,250 ft. of runway when departing a sea-level, standard-day airport, and 5,890 ft. of pavement when departing B&CA’s 5,000‑ft. elevation, ISA+20C airport.
It can climb directly to FL 410 in 27 min. and cruise at 357-377 KTAS once level, depending upon weight and assuming ISA temperatures.
The aircraft is ideal for single-pilot operations and the upgrade to the FMS-3000 provides full 3-D navigation capability, including the ability to fly to published or pilot defined vertical waypoints.
Jeppesen electronic charts, SafeFlight angle-of-attack indexers and back-up FMS-3000 or Garmin GPS-500 are worthwhile options.
Stay with dual Collins FMS-3000 boxes and they’ll talk to each other.
But, the Garmin box is powered by the emergency battery buss, so it’s available in the event of a dual generator failure.
The cabin is 4.8-ft. wide with a rather narrow floor. All interior lights are long life LEDs. Each chair has a pair of cup holders in the side wall arm rail.
There is club seating for four with fore/aft and inboard/outboard chair movement and up to 45 degrees of seat back recline.
Strap into a CJ1+ and you’ll feel as comfortable as when you slip on your favorite shoes.
The main passenger cabin has a 5-in. dropped aisle that provides 4.7 ft. of headroom.
Flight plan this aircraft at 360 kt. You can operate out of most smaller general aviation airports and fly between most landing facilities in the U.S. with a single refueling stop.
The aircraft is impressively quiet inside for a light jet and so easy to fly that it makes turboprops feel complex and challenging.
We especially like its short- and long-period pitch stability, soft-touch trailing link landing gear and sure-stop braking action.
Use of the ground spoiler/60-deg. flap, lift dump function, along with reduced engine ground idle speed, enhances stopping performance, especially on contaminated runways.
There is a lot of competition in this end of the market.
The Embraer Phenom 100 has a much larger cabin and better fuel efficiency, but slower cruise speeds and less sprightly runway performance.
The Premier 1/1A also has a considerably larger cabin and higher cruise speeds, but inferior runway performance.
CJ1+ now has been replaced by the fourth-generation Citation M2, a faster, better equipped and plusher version of the CitationJet.
The M2 is putting downward price pressure on the CJ1+ market, providing purchasers with leverage. Outside of the Citation family, there are larger and roomier aircraft in this class.
But, few have the everyday utility, short-field performance and efficiency of CJ1+.
