Citation Mustang For Sale
Cessna Citation Mustang Aircraft For Sale
The Cessna Citation Mustang, Model 510, is a very light jet (VLJ) class business jet built by Cessna Aircraft Company at their Independence, Kansas production facility. The Mustang, in standard configuration, has four passenger seats in the aft cabin, a toilet, and seating for two in the cockpit. Like most other light jets, the Mustang is approved for single-pilot operation.
The end of production was announced in May 2017, with just over 470 aircraft built over 12 years.
Citation Mustang Development
The Model 510 Mustang first flew on 23 April 2005. The airplane received full type certification from the Federal Aviation Administration on September 8, 2006. Cessna received FAA certification to fly into “known icing conditions” on November 9, 2006. Cessna delivered the first production LJ on November 22, 2006, the same day the FAA awarded Cessna with the necessary certification. Dave and Dawn Goode of GOODE Ski Technologies received the first retail delivered Cessna Mustang on April 23, 2007.
In 2010, Cessna launched an enhanced edition of the aircraft called the High Sierra, which features higher quality cabin furnishings and enhanced avionics, including synthetic vision.
Cessna ended production of the design in May 2017, with just over 470 examples produced. Production ended due to lack of customer demand for the aircraft, as a result of competition from the company’s own Cessna Citation M2. The company had been selling an average of 40 Mustangs per year until the M2 was introduced in 2013 and then Mustang sales dropped to just 24 aircraft over the next three years. The M2 is a faster and larger aircraft, but can operate from similar length runways and requires only a single pilot with the C/E-525 type rating, which reduced training and crewing costs over the Mustang.
