CJP’s Commitment to Citation Safety

The Citation Jet Pilots, Owner Pilot Association (CJP) has formed a dedicated Safety Committee to engage with its CJP members on methods and procedures for operating their Citation aircraft in the safest possible manner, and to share safety-related resources for use by its CJP members and the broader aviation community. As a CJP member you will now receive a quarterly newsletter called CJP Right Seat. Within these pages you will have access to the latest Citation safety dialog, as well as this safety page on our website where tools and documents will be present as they become available.

CJP Safety Committee

The new Safety Committee is chaired by noted industry professional Charlie Precourt, a former Air Force F-15 test pilot / instructor and a four time NASA space shuttle astronaut who was inducted into the NASA Astronaut Hall of Fame. Precourt holds a commercial pilot certificate with instrument and certified flight instructor (CFI) ratings, and has accumulated over 11,000 hours of flight experience in 90 different aircraft types, including several versions of the Cessna Citation.

You can read his full bio here and see the press release here.

“I'm delighted by the opportunity to lead CJP's new Safety Committee, and I look forward to discussing safety philosophies and best practices with CJP members. As one of the largest owner/pilot organizations in the world, CJP’s efforts will help promote safety throughout general aviation.”Charlie Precourt

Safety Documents

Thank you for your consideration and use of the CJP Safety & Education Foundation, Inc. (“CJP”) standard operating practices (“SOPs”) for operators of Citation aircraft. These SOPs are provided to CJP members as a tool to guide and supplement the safety of flight actions of the owner and pilot in command of Citation aircraft. They are a set of best practices taken from various industry sources compiled by the CJP Safety Committee. In the case of any conflict between the SOPs and Federal Aviation Regulations or Federal Aviation Administration policy (together “FARs”), the FARs shall supersede the SOPs. Also, the SOPs do not replace definitive materials such as the approved and current Airplane Flight Manual, Operating Manual or related official documentation from the manufacturer or sub-system vendors (such materials are “Official Documentation”).

CJP SOP Reference Sheet - All Citations

CJP SOPs 510 G1000 – V1.0

CJP SOPs M2-CJ3+ G3000 – V1.0

CJP SOPs 525 Pro Line 21 – V1.0

CJP SOPs Other or Legacy Citations – V1.0

Any user of the SOPs, whether an owner or pilot and whether or not acting as the Pilot-in-Command (PIC), is responsible for verifying the appropriateness and applicability of any action or set of actions in the SOPs against the FARs and Official Documentation. Such verification should reference official sources of information for any particular Citation aircraft, such as the approved and current Airplane Flight Manual provided by the manufacturer. Furthermore, the SOPs may not flag or provide guidance on every safe practice or flight condition. As always, the PIC shall be responsible for gathering all relevant, authorized information before making decisions related to the safe and legal conduct of a flight.

No express or implied warranty is given for the accuracy of the information contained in the SOPs. The accuracy and completeness are not guaranteed and CJP shall not have any liability for the use of the SOPs.

By accepting the SOPs from CJP, you agree to use the SOPs at your own risk and agree to indemnify and hold harmless CJP (including its officers, directors, committee members, employees and contractors) from any losses, financial or otherwise, claims, damages or other expenses that occur directly or indirectly in connection with your use of the SOPs.

Failure to read or understand this disclaimer, in no way absolves the user of his or her responsibility to be familiar with its contents. If you do not agree to be bound by all the terms set out herein, do not use the SOPs.
