Cessna Citation Mustang

    Cessna's acclaimed entry-level light jet, the twin-engine Citation Mustang, is big and powerful enough to satisfy those moving up from piston airplanes, yet still small enough that an owner-operator can feel comfortable flying it without a copilot. The Mustang’s cockpit is designed for easy single-pilot operation, with computer-monitored systems and digital engine controls. The Garmin G1000 avionics panel is loaded with features, and the brand is familiar to many pilots transitioning from smaller airplanes. In fact, the Mustang’s $2.86 million price tag makes it a sensible step up from a piston twin or a high-performance single. FlightSafety, an international pilot-training firm, offers a tailored course for new Mustang owners. Contract mentor pilots are also available, should a new owner want an experienced hand in the cockpit during initial flights. The jet engines can be easier to maintain than pistons, and for what care they need, Cessna’s worldwide service-and-support network is unparalleled in the private-aviation industry. The Mustang has been flying since 2005. It's popular in Europe as a charter and air-taxi aircraft that makes short hops between cities. The Mustang seats six, including the pilot, and has a top speed of 391 mph.
