The Cessna Citation CJ3+ interior has been designed for up to 8 passengers – plus one up in the cockpit – to comfortably fly for a few hours at a time.

Cessna have been able to create a roomy cabin for the capabilities of the aircraft and include so much appreciated features.

Exploring the Dimensions of the Citation CJ3+ Interior

The spacious design of this light jet is worth mentioning in relation to its interior.

Having a length of 15 feet and 8 inches (4.78 meters), it allows enough room for ease in movement and comfort.

With 4 feet 10 inches (1.47 meters) as its width, the seats are of a good width and there is enough shoulder room without compromising the width of the aisle.

Height contributes to comfortable atmosphere inside it by taking up only four feet nine inches or 1 meter two centimeters thus offering snug but not cloying environment.

All these dimensions make sure each passenger enjoys his or her journey comfortably without any feeling of being squeezed.

Layouts have been created to utilize most available space so that nine passengers can feel like they are at home and enjoy their flight.

It is important to note that one of the nine passengers would need to be upfront in the cockpit with the pilot.

An important feature added to improve functionality is a large luggage capacity which is about 1,000 lbs (453 KG).

Seating Capacity and Configuration Options

The club configuration comprises four front seats.

These may be used when having private discussions between passengers or business meetings at any time.

A foldable executive table is placed just next to them offering a solid support for work or meals.

These can either be replaced with a refreshment center or side seat depending on the needs of individuals within the cabin .

Thus, it is fitted with a regular flushing toilet unit that is also belted and so may be used by anyone in the aircraft .

The CJ3+ therefore combines more seats and amenities than any other type of light jet in its category; hence this decision underpins passengers’ satisfaction as well as their flexibility.

This travel concept has been carefully applied to every detail inside the cabin, starting from seating arrangements to convenience facilities.

With such thoughtful configurations, Cessna’s Citation CJ3+ stands out for being able to cater for different preferences of its passengers thereby making each trip a proof of quality in light jets by Cessna.
