Citation CJ2

When Cessna redesigned their popular CJ1 private jet, known for its low operating costs and high performance, the result was the CJ2: bigger, faster, and better. The cabin stretched an additional thirty-three inches, the wingspan stretched an additional thirty-five. Its cruise speed outdoes the CJ by thirty knots with a significantly reduced fuel burn.

The design goals of the Citation Jet series can be summed up in three words: simplicity, economy, and performance.  This proved to be a challenge, especially in creating an aerodynamic structure that is inexpensive to produce and handles well.  Previous Citations had used a straight wing, which slows the aircraft considerably but dramatically reduces production and design costs.  The Citation Jet upgraded to a natural laminar flow wing, which took four years to design in a joint venture between Cessna and NASA.  This wing delays the onset of airflow separation longer, which improves the lift-to-drag characteristics ten to fifteen percent when compared to earlier straight-wing designs.
