FMS No Longer An Option
Cessna says its Citation CJ3's standard avionics package has
been significantly improved. All Citation CJ3s will now come
equipped with a standard FMS performance database.
The new standard FMS performance database will provide takeoff
and landing performance data at customer's fingertips.
will be calculated and posted to the primary flight display. This
is the first time a FMS performance database will be standard
equipment on this class of aircraft. When Cessna announced the
Citation CJ3 at the 2002 NBAA convention, the FMS performance
database was listed as optional equipment.
The Citation CJ3 offers a Collins Pro Line 21 avionics system.
Cessna has included the copilot's primary flight display with
second air data computer as standard equipment, which equips the
aircraft for RVSM.
The primary flight displays and enhanced multi-function display
are presented on three 8-inch by 10-inch active matrix color liquid
crystal displays. Other integrated avionics features include an
Integrated Flight Information System (IFIS) with cursor control
panel and enhanced map overlays, dual panel mounted radio tuning
units, and Collins FMS-3000.
The Citation CJ3 is designed for single pilot operation. Its
maximum cruise speed is 417 knots at 33,000 feet. With two pilots,
full fuel, four passengers and baggage, the CJ3 offers an IFR range
of 1,771 NM and a VFR range of 1,900 NM. Service ceiling is 45,000
feet and the maximum gross takeoff weight is 13,870 lbs.
The time to climb directly to 45,000 feet at maximum gross
takeoff weight is 35 minutes.
