Cessna’s CJ4 Ready to Launch

Mary Grady

Cessna won federal approval for its latest corporate jet, the CJ4, in March, paving the way for deliveries to start later this year. The cabin of the eight-passenger jet is about two feet longer than the CJ3 model, and the all-new wing borrows the swept-back design introduced on the larger Sovereign. The wing delivers aerodynamic enhancements that translate to better performance, with short takeoffs, quick climbs, and cruise speeds of more than 500 mph. Brand-new electronically controlled engines from Williams International promise to be quiet and fuel efficient. All the latest electronic gear in both the cockpit and the cabin ensure maximum comfort and reliability. The CJ4 sells for about $9 million. (316.517.6056, www.cessna.com)
