I like it, not as good as the Lears but still a decent jet with good performance. My fbo is close to another fbo that does aircraft detailing and there are many CJs that stop by, I've been in a couple.

Hard to beat the aircraft for what it does! But don't expect it to go too far too fast. Cessna provides excellent product support so that adds great value especially for dispatch reliability.  thumbsup

I had a demo flight on one last summer. Nicely appointed for a Cessna. They have window shades built in. The sales rep touted it's speed. Well, it's good for a non-swept wing. But I fly a plane that's much faster and has longer range. The CJ3 makes up for this by being quiet and economical. It's pretty roomy for what it is but it's not a Gulfstream or BBJ. The refreshment center and lav are very limited. Carry on bag space is limited although the baggage compartments are very spacious but not pressurized. Make sure your liquids and gels are well capped and double bagged. The cockpit is state of the art and the performance, takeoff, climb, accelleration were all great especially with a full load. The plane doesn't have an APU. The salesman says, "why have one of those when you could just run the Williams engine?"
