A successful evolution of Cessna’s famous CJ1 private jet, the CJ2/CJ2+ (or C525) is a more powerful version of its predecessor without sacrificing the comparative advantage of a cheap hour’s flight that the manufacturer is known for. At 83cm longer and with a wingspan of over 89cm than its little brother the CJ1, the CJ2 manages to be faster and more fuel efficient. Although the CJ2 is no longer in production, it is still widely available on the European charter market at attractive prices for flights of up to 2.5 hours.
More spacious than the CJ1, the cabin can accommodate up to 6 passengers, usually in a club configuration with two additional reclining and rotating seats at the front of the cabin. The cabin is plainly finished, but comfort is provided by the increased cabin size, folding tables, integrated toilets and a minibar for passengers to use.
Equipped with the new generation of luminous flow wings, the CJ2 has better aerodynamics, significantly increasing the flight speed (+ 55 km/h compared to the CJ1). Ideal for travelling with up to 6 people on flights of around 2.5 hours, the CJ2’s performance allows it to achieve a very appreciable range for its class. With its excellent value for money, the CJ2 is a private jet often hired for business or leisure trips with 4 to 6 passengers.
