The very light jet par excellence!

Introducing the Cessna Citation Mustang

The Citation Mustang single-handedly transformed business aviation. Arrived in 2007, this aircraft is the first “very light jet” certified to fly in known icing conditions, a privilege hitherto enjoyed by larger aircraft. A pioneer in this segment, it is now in direct competition with the Embraer Phenom 100 and the HondaJet.

Its small size allows it to consume less fuel than heavier jets making it both more accessible and less polluting.

The performance of the Citation Mustang definitely puts it above all propeller-driven business jets (with the possible exception of TBMs) with a cruise speed of 630 km/h and a range of 2100 km.

This is the most rented device for business trips because its rental cost is far from prohibitive compared to the time saved!

Advantages of the Cessna Citation Mustang

  • A business jet and the speed that comes with it.
  • A very controlled sound level that has nothing to envy to the Beechcraft C90.
  • The most affordable price in its category (from 1500€/hour excluding pilot(s) on openfly.fr).
  • Relative landing flexibility on short runways.
  • A maximum range of 2160 km, the equivalent of a Paris – Saint Petersburg. (with 1 pax)
  • Can be piloted by a single pilot, freeing up a passenger seat. (in private)


Interior of the Cessna Citation Mustang

Despite the size of the aircraft, the flight is very comfortable. The four leather seats are arranged in a square, and two tablets come out from between the seats which allows the use of 2 laptops.

The sound environment of the aircraft is low enough to discuss, hold a meeting or rest during the journey.

The luggage space does not allow you to take large volumes if you are traveling with four.
