Cessna Aircraft Co. completed wing/fuselage mate of Citation CJ4 serial number 003 earlier this week. The new Citation CJ4, the latest in the popular CJ series, will enter service in 2010.
Three aircraft, a prototype and serial numbers 001 and 002, have started certification flight test in Wichita, already accumulating more than 800 flight hours of developmental testing. The first two production aircraft were assembled to production specifications on production tooling while No. 3 is the first CJ4 to be assembled with production tooling on the new assembly line.
The original CitationJet was introduced in 1993 and the fleet of nearly 1,400 airplanes has amassed more than 2.1 million flight hours.
