CitationJet 525

CitationJet 525

We are excited to be developing the CitationJet 525 for X-Plane 11. The CitationJet entered service in 1993 as a corporate/executive jet. It is powered by 2 Williams FJ-44-1A engines. We are modeling this initial model in the CitationJet series. This aircraft is the precursor to the CJ1, CJ1+, and M2.

We are working with a type-rated CitationJet Captain, GrauAdler, who flies the aircraft on a frequent basis. He will be helping with development, testing, and data acquisition.

Our estimated release timeframe is Late Summer 2018 (Note, this is just an estimate). You can follow along on our development both at our forums and our discord!
