This month Cessna delivered its first Citation CJ4 in Europe. The $9 million aircraft went to a private operator in the UK. EASA certification is pending and Cessna anticipates delivering the first European-registered CJ4 into Germany in the second quarter of next year.
Separately, Cessna announced that it will release a troubleshooting program for the aircraft next month. The CJ4 Expert System program can be run from disk or the Internet and will speed maintenance diagnosis of alerts received from the engine indicating and crew alerting system. New CJ4s will be delivered with the Expert System. Other Citation maintenance providers can access the system through Cessna customer service.
Customers can use the Expert System as a maintenance training tool for aircraft systems, according to the company.
