Textron Aviation Cessna said Wednesday it has sold a Citation CJ3-Plus business jet to a Canadian fractional aircraft operator.

AirSprint took delivery of the single-pilot light jet in Wichita this week.

The company, which serves fractional owners in numerous areas throughout Canada — Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and the Maritimes — has a number of Citation jets in its fleet, including XL/XLS and CJ2-Plus.

“The Citation CJ3+ is a natural extension for our fleet of Citation CJ2+ aircraft,” James Elian, AirSpring president and COO, said in a Textron Aviation news release.

The base price for a CJ3-Plus is $7.9 million.
