Light Jets Aust. Cessna 525 Citation CJ1 VH-TFW

Archerfield based Light Jets Australia Cessna 525 Citation CJ1 VH-TFW is a semi-regular visitor to Central Queensland, and when spending time in the region, will often pop into Biloela / Thangool Aerodrome for awhile before heading to Rockhampton where it will likely (but not always) remain overnight.

However, the most recent visit to Central Queensland by VH-TFW saw the aircraft spend a weekend at Rockhampton after flying north from Archerfield via Toowoomba on Friday, September 16.

Here, the neatly presented CJ1 remained parked adjacent to the Peace Aviation hangar until departing directly back to Archerfield on Monday, September 19.

Manufactured in 2001 and powered by a pair of Williams International FJ44-1A turbofans, VH-TFW is capable of cruising at 360 knots, achieve a service ceiling of 41000ft, and a range between 1100-1200 miles / 1770-1930km's.
