Okay, I understand the need for a relief tube on fighters, maybe on a Cessna 150-172, but I recently saw that the CJ1 also has a pilot relief tube!!! This leads to Questions:

1.Do airliners have them too?
2.How and how often are they cleaned?

On the big jets we get up out of our seats, leave the the cockpit, and use the rest rooms just like all the other passengers.  

BTW..What's a CJ1?

A CJ1 is a just another in the Citation Jet family.

If you could own any corporate jet, what would it be? I am tron between the Citation X, the GV, and the BBJ. I think, though, I would have to take an original Citation Jet so I could fly it myself (single pilot, I mean). What are your thoughts?

I have internally discussed this for years, here's my answer:

1.Money being no object a BBJ.
2.Realistically a Safire S-26.

I'd personally have to go with the new CJII... it is a little bigger, but has more powerful engines and is much more capable of doing longer flights than the CJI. Any route over 1000nm sees big weight restrictions on the CJI... but not the CJII. Which should be single pilot certified.

The Piaggio P-180 Avanti can outrun (OK, not always), outclimb, and has a bigger cabin than the CJ1. That would be my choice. The CJ1 does have a better cockpit, though.

For the ultimate, no holds barred, I really like the Global Express' cockpit suite and strikingly sleek lines. But the BBJ has a huge advantage: space. Right now, I really like my own space. So I'd probably get a BBJ.
