Cessna announced the CJ4 at the NBAA meeting in October 2006. The CJ4’s first flight was accomplished on May 5th, 2008. Certification came in March 2010. Like the rest of the CJ family the CJ4 is single pilot certified.
The wing has been redesigned, compared to the CJ3’s wing, incorporating many features of the Cessna Sovereign’s wing. The CJ4 normally seats 6 or 7 but can seat up to 8 passengers. Interior compliments include a lavatory and refreshment center.
The CJ4 has the Pro Line 21 avionics Suite with FMS (flight management System), WAAS (wide area augmentation system) and IFIS (integrated flight information system). Along with the avionics upgrade comes a Rockwell Collins Venue cabin management system which controls the entertainment system as well as the environmental system. The Venue system also provides BluRay DVD capability with Hi-Definition monitors, moving maps and XM Radio.
