Cessna received FAA type certification of its CJ2+ on October 3. Deliveries of the twinjet are scheduled to start in the second quarter of next year. Announced at the 2004 NBAA Convention, the CJ2+ is an upgraded CJ2 featuring FADEC-equipped Williams International FJ44-3A-24 turbofans and greater payload, higher maximum cruise speed, more range and better runway performance than its predecessor.
When customers start receiving their Citation Sovereigns, they might notice the tail area has more vortex generators than it did when the super-midsize business jet received FAA type certification in June.
