The Cessna Citation CJ3 and CJ3+ are light jets developed and built by American manufacturer Textron Aviation Inc.

Based on the earlier Citation CJ2, the model 525B Citation CJ3 features a longer cabin, greater range and larger engines than those of its predecessor. The Cessna 525B Citation CJ3 was introduced in 2002 and flew for the first time the following year.

Two variations of the 525B have been manufactured; the Citation CJ3 and the upgraded Citaiton CJ3+. The latter model features a redesigned cockpit, which includes an updated Garmin G3000 touchscreen avionics suite. The Citation CJ3+ has a maximum range some 250 nautical miles greater than the earlier Citation CJ2+.

The Cessna 525B Citation CJ3 has since gone on to form the basis for the larger Cessna 525C Citation CJ4 model.
