BizJet Has Been In Production Less Than Three Years
Cessna rolled out its 300th Citation Mustang at its assembly
facility in Independence, KS Thursday, less than three years after
the first Mustang delivery in 2007.
"The aircraft continues to set the mark for entry level business
jet operations around the world, and its demand has remained fairly
resilient during the past year," said Jack J. Pelton, Chairman,
President and CEO. "It has found success in air taxi and charter
operations, in flight departments, in training organizations as
well as with owner-operators."
The 300th Mustang will be delivered later this year to a retail
customer in Australia.
The Citation Mustang is the world's first fully certified
entry-level business jet. It was announced at the 2002 National
Business Aviation Association convention and made its first flight
in April 2005. The first Citation Mustang was delivered in April
The Mustang features Garmin avionics, Pratt & Whitney Canada
engines and boasts a maximum 1,200-nautical mile range. Price at
delivery was right at $3 million.
