The Cessna Citation Mustang is a business jet built by Cessna Aircraft Company at their Kansas production facility. It was a light business jet, hence it was commonly referred to as a very light jet (VLJ). The Mustang, like any other small business jet, is certified to fly without a co-pilot. Length is 21-3/4" and wingspan is 19-1/4".
The Mustang was first flown on April 23, 2005. On September 8, 2006, Mustang received full type certification from the Federal Aviation Administration. In fact, the Mustang was the first of its class to receive full type certification, first to receive certification to fly into known-icing conditions, the first VLJ to be delivered to a customer, thus, making Cessna the worlds first fully certified, new-generation entry level business jet.
The Mustang features a wide passenger door and a large eye-level window for natural ambiance and externally accessed luggage space in the front and rear cabin. The Mustang is powered by two Pratt and Whitney Canada PW615F engines with dual FADECs for efficient fuel consumption. The Mustang has a top speed of 340 kn and a range of 1,150 nautical miles and a service ceiling of 41,000 feet which is well suited for getting above weather and commercial traffic for more efficient operations.
Cessna Citation Mustangs sales have climbed to 250 units, with the majority coming from international customers, selling out production well into 2009. Cessna plans to enhance its sales and marketing efforts by increasing its domestic and international sales force, conducting intensive demonstration tours with multiple aircraft on a worldwide basis and stepping up its marketing campaign in response to the very high level of interest in the Citation Mustang expressed by customers globally.
