The Citation CJ3 is one of most popular Cessna light jets. Since the first delivery of a CJ3 over 18 years ago, the aircraft has consistently been in high demand on the pre-owned aircraft market. The single-pilot certified jet offers an economical gateway to the skies that is attractive to many owners and operators. Just six months ago, the CJ3 market had only one publicly listed aircraft available, which was less than 1% of its available fleet. Today, inventory levels have risen to 11 aircraft, or about 3.2% of the available fleet. The levels today were last seen in the second quarter of 2021, just before the aircraft buying frenzy ensued.
Buyers can rest assured that more options will become available as we continue to trek through the second half of 2022. Average asking prices remain strong increasing by $858,000 compared to just six months ago. Omni Aircraft Sales is closely monitoring the Citation CJ3 market.
