Cessna Adds FMS To CJ-3

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.

Additionally, V-speeds 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.
