Cessna Citation Mustang is the smallest and least-expensive aircraft, belonging to the Citation family.
This business jet aircraft has four passenger seats in the aft cabin and seating for two in the cockpit. Like the other very light jets (VLJ) models, the Mustang is approved for single-pilot operation.
The Mustang is a low-wing cantilever monoplane with a tricycle retractable landing gear and two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F turbofan engines, mounted in pods on the rear aft fuselage.
This aircraft is also a low-wing cantilever monoplane with a tricycle retractable landing gear and two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F turbofan engines, fixed in pods on the rear aft fuselage.
Cessna delivered the first production VLJ (very light jet) on November 23, 2006 and also in the same day the FAA offered the necessary Type Certificate in recognition of merit.
The fastest business aircraft in history, offers you some benefits like an ample cabin-class seating, a good price, true jet speed and a good half-continent of range.
High levels style
The Citation Mustang has the same avionics package, the Garmin G1000, as the majority of Cessna single-engine aircrafts. The high levels of performance are obtainable now, in a jet aircraft, costing millions less. Comfort and security are other words to describe Citation Mustang.
The Cessna Citation Mustang Exterior
340 knots(630 km/hr), 1,460 pounds, 1,150 nm
An ideal equilibrium between performance, good looks and efficiency, this aircraft take off from just 3,110 feet (948 m) of runway, climb swiftly to 41,000 feet (12,497 m) and fly 1,150 nautical miles (2,130 km). The main landing gear offers superior shock absorption on landing, also the anti-skid brakes which are powered by hydraulic system with an emergency pneumatic back-up system.
The equilibrium between performance, good looks and efficiency
The large storage area, the advanced engine controls and the sleek aerodynamic design, make from the airplane a smart choice for the jet-aspiring aviators.
The storage area measures 57 cubic feet (1.61 m3). The icing conditions are not a problem for the Mustang, because of the pneumatic boots on the leading edge of the wing.
The Citation Mustang’s short landing distances and slow approach speeds increase landing safety, especially when utilizing airports with minimal runways.

Citation Mustang Avionics
The pilot will enjoy the best technology give by the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit delivering at-a-glance awareness that is comprehensive and intuitive. We have to consider the autopilot controls, the crew alerting, the engine indication and the digital audio panel, all of which will bring the security and the confidence you need to buy this aircraft.

Multi-Function Displays (MFD) found on any business jet, two large, 10.4-inch high-resolution Primary Flight Displays (PFDs), that present the flight information, everything from aircraft position and air data to engine instrumentation, real-time weather, traffic and terrain can be gathered and assimilated in a click.
Citation Mustang Engine
The Mustang is a low-wing cantilever monoplane with two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F turbofan engines, mounted in pods on the rear aft fuselage.
Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F turbofan engines are the best option
Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F turbofan engines are the best option
Delivering 1,460 pounds (6.49 kN) of takeoff thrust apiece and powering the aircraft to cruise speeds reaching 340 knots (630 km/hr), Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F turbofan engines are the best option for a very light jet aircraft. Having these engines you’ll notice a substantial saving in overhaul costs, because Full-authority digital engine controls (FADEC) will reduce the pilot workload and will simplify the operation, providing time-limited dispatch, diagnostics and also engine synchronization according to switch position.
Producing 1,460 pounds (6.49 kN) of thrust at sea level, static conditions, flat rated up to 77°F (25°C), the engine is a 2.8:1 bypass ratio, counter-rotating twin-spool design with three compression stages and two turbine stages.
Citation Mustang Safety
Safe and soundly built. The exceptional performance and the payload are two very important reasons why Cessna Company has sold more airplanes than anyone else in history. Also we should remind the interior comfort, reliability and value, having all these reasons, safety is always at the forefront. These aircrafts have been tested exhaustively to prove its durability and reliability. The durable Citation airplanes have recorded more than 20 million flight hours, and taken off and landed more than 18 million times.
These aircrafts have been tested exhaustively
Now, the pilot operation will not require much effort, because you’ll notice certain "rightness" to the flight deck, a sense of familiarity to the controls and that make flying safer, simpler and more pleasurable.
