Cessna Aircraft has announced the rollout of the first production Citation CJ3+ business jet from its Wichita, Kansas facility.

The new model – which was first announced in March –  features a redesigned cabin with new pressurisation and new diagnostics systems, a Garmin G3000 avionics suite incorporating turbulence detecting weather radar, TCAS II, advanced Terrain Awareness Warning Systems (TAWS), and ADS-B capabilities, and is expected to receive Federal Aviation Administration certification during the second half of the year.

“Today’s rollout occurred just two months after the announcement of the new CJ3+, showing our strength in investment and certification of new products,” Cessna’s vice president, Jets, Chris Hearne said in a statement. “We are eager to get the CJ3+ into the hands of customers later this year where they will benefit from the upgraded Garmin G3000 flight deck and incorporation of the latest Citation cabin features.”
