Textron Aviation has named FlyExclusive the fleet launch customer for the Cessna Citation CJ3 Gen2.

The next-generation light jet was formally announced during the National Business Aviation Association conference in Las Vegas.

“We are thrilled to announce FlyExclusive as the fleet launch customer for the Citation CJ3 Gen2, the latest addition to the industry-leading Citation family,” said Lannie O’Bannion, Textron Aviation Senior Vice President, Global Sales and Flight Operations.

He continued, “The CJ3 Gen2 is the ideal aircraft to enhance FlyExclusive’s existing fleet, offering both passengers and pilots an elevated experience. With its proven performance, leading-edge technology, and unmatched cabin amenities, this aircraft reflects our commitment to innovation and excellence in aviation.”

Earlier this month, FlyExclusive took delivery of its first three CJ3+ jets as part of an order of up to 44 new Textron Aviation aircraft, including up to 30 CJ3+s.

“FlyExclusive customers expect the best, and we believe the best planes money can buy are built and serviced by Textron Aviation,” said Jim Segrave, FlyExclusive Founder, Chairman and CEO.

He continued, “We take pride in being the fleet launch customer for the Citation CJ3 Gen 2, building on our decades-long relationship with Textron Aviation. I am excited that our fractional customers will get to invest and travel in the top light jet in the world.”
