The third member of Cessna’s ever-growing Citation CJ series, the CJ3, moved closer to first flight within the next 90 days with final assembly of the first airframe, initial engine runs and the start of taxi trials last month. Powered by two 2,780-pound-thrust Williams FJ44-3As, the $5.895 million CJ3 (about $1 million more than the slightly smaller and less powerful CJ2) is targeted for certification in about 15 months. Cessna reports holding orders for more than 160 CJ3s.
