Cessna’s newest production aircraft, the CJ4, has now been on the charter market for just over a year in Europe. How is it faring up?

PrivateFly explores the newest aircraft in the Wichita company’s world-dominating stable of aircraft.

Larger, faster and more comfortable than any other aircraft in the hugely popular Citation Jet series, the aircraft still maintains its smaller siblings' ability to access a wide range of airfields giving passengers ultimate flexibility on routes and airport choice.

This runway performance has seen the CJ4 become a popular choice for the world's most challenging and scenic approaches such as London City, Nice and Salzburg.

The CJ4's features are the most advanced yet of any in the Citation line. With upgraded engines, avionics and a redesigned wing structure, the aircraft's performance has been increased substantially.

This greater range and higher speed means the CJ4 has flown 6 PrivateFly passengers from London to Moscow at high speed.

Another great advance that that Cessna have made with the CJ4 is in the passenger cabin.

The cabin has been lengthened and widened resulting in the most spacious and ergonomic interior possible in an aircraft of this size. Our clients have mentioned that it feels significantly larger than a CJ3 aircraft, despite the relatively small cost-per-hour premium.

The luxury seating has also been updated with advanced materials resulting in more comfortable chairs that take up less space.

In-flight entertainment, too, has been updated with personal screens featuring Airshow and DVD/Blu-Ray playing capabilities.

The aircraft features a separate lavatory and wash basin and a deluxe refreshment area providing hot and cold food and drinks, with significantly higher specifications than other light jets.

Combining high performance and luxury with the efficiency and accessibility of a small jet, it is our prediction that we will see an ever increasing number of CJ4s become available within the global charter market, which can only be a good thing for passengers.
