The CitationJet was a clean sheet design from Cessna over “legacy” models introduced in 1993. NASA assisted with laminar flow wing design to bring a new level of efficiency to the light jet fleet. The CJ series was certified for single pilot operations from day one. The original cockpit is a 6 pack standard design with basic radios and an antiquated FMS, although the majority of the fleet has been updated to incorporate Garmin GPS/NAV/COM units with the latest iteration being the GTN 750/750xi. 16 models have the G1000 cockpit conversion, and as of January 2021 an STC was released for the G600TXI and GFC 600 autopilot.
