Citation CJ4

Citation CJ4 - collage


The Citation® CJ4® jet redefines versatility for a light jet. The CJ4 has added speed, range and cabin size over its predecessor without incurring midsize jet operating costs. The Collins Pro Line 21™ avionics suite allows a single pilot to effectively operate the CJ4. Features such as single point refueling, an externally serviceable lavatory and excellent range deliver what crew and cabin passengers appreciate.


Citation CJ4


The pilot-friendly flight deck features category-leading technology and ergonomic enhancements centered around the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21™ avionics suite.


Standard CJ4 capability includes enhanced weather tracking via the Rockwell Collins RTA-4112 MultiScan™ Weather Radar system.  Pilots can use this solid-state radar system to detect weather systems and navigate around them to minimize turbulence.  Short, mid and long-range weather detection is included with multiple radar scans at preselected tilt angles.  At any altitude or range, the system displays an optimized weather picture for the pilot.

Citation Hemisphere


The Citation Hemisphere aircraft comes equipped with Honeywell’s latest avionics system, providing pilots with a conformal 3D view of the outside world in challenging weather conditions such as fog, rain or snow to improve situational awareness.

Honeywell’s connected aircraft solution spans satellite communications and connectivity airtime as well as cockpit, cabin, and integrates with Textron Aviation’s proprietary LinxUs™ maintenance and diagnostics reporting ecosystem.

A transoceanic flight management system, coupled with SmartView™ for lower minimums, precision inertial reference sensors, and a comprehensive connected aircraft, combined these innovations will enable Hemisphere operators to reach destinations faster and with reduced cost.


Citation Hemisphere


The Citation Hemisphere will be powered by two next-generation Safran™ Silvercrest™ engines with over 12,000 pounds of thrust. The Silvercrest engines incorporate the latest advanced, field-proven technologies to offer unrivaled performance in its class in terms of direct operating cost, propulsion efficiency, reliability and environmental friendliness.

These engines lower fuel consumption by up to 15 percent, reduce NOx emissions by up to 40 percent under CAEP/6 standards and half the noise footprint compared to other engines in its class.

By combining the visible and infrared capabilities of the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes, astronomers and visualization specialists from NASA’s Universe of Learning program have created a spectacular, three-dimensional, fly-through movie of the magnificent Orion nebula, a nearby stellar nursery.

Using actual scientific data along with Hollywood techniques, a team at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Caltech/IPAC in Pasadena, California, has produced the best and most detailed multi-wavelength visualization yet of the Orion nebula.
