To reduce the sound of the already quiet engines the CJ1+ has special acoustic padding to ensure you have a peaceful journey. Moreover, with a ceiling altitude of 41,000 feet (12,497 m) this means you fly high above most weather which equates to greater speed and less turbulence.

The CJ1+ has two powerful Williams FJ44-1AP engines that deliver a huge amount of thrust and performance. The surface of the aircraft has been redesigned to reduce drag and therefore improve efficiency.

The flexibility and ease of use of this aircraft is evident by its ability to take off from a 4,000 foot runway in all types of adverse weather conditions, such as from hot temperatures and high elevation at maximum payload capacity. The re-design of the tail section has reduced the overall weight and size of the aircraft whilst maintaining the cabin size.
All of these technological improvements give this private jet aircraft the ability to climb to an altitude of 41,000 feet in only 27 minutes and cruise at 448 mph (720 km/hr).
