The Cessna Citation Mustang (Model 510) is a single pilot approved aircraft which was launched at the 2002 NBAA convention. This very light jet received it’s FAA type certification in September 2006 and first deliveries began in late November of the same year. This aircraft is capable of some of the fastest cruising speeds and largest baggage capacities in its class. It’s also one of the smallest aircraft in the Citation family.
On July 26th 2010, Cessna announced an enhanced upgrade to the Mustang with the new High Sierra Edition at the Experimental Aircraft Association annual week-long conference. This upgrade features luxury editions of the three available Interiors, a Garmin G1000 with synthetic vision technology and more. (1)
In a standard configuration this aircraft can seat up to 4 passengers in the aft cabin and 2 in the cockpit. Powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F turbofan engines (1,460 pounds-force of thrust), the Mustang has a normal range of 718 nautical miles (1,329 km) and a maximum range of 1,200 nautical miles (2,222 km). It can also reach a maximum cruise speed of approximately Mach 0.6 and a normal cruise speed of Mach 0.5.
The Citation Mustang has a takeoff distance of 3,110 ft (948 m), a landing distance of 2,380 ft (725 m) and a maximum cruise altitude of 41,000 ft. Its maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) is 8,635 lbs, while its maximum landing weight (MLW) is 8,000 lbs. (2)
Being one of the smaller aircraft available in the Citation family, this jet offers a much smaller cabin when compared to larger options in stock or on the market. For its size, it does offer quite the amount of space for storage considering the amount of seating and other configurations. Overall this aircraft is quite the cost-effective and an efficient option for short-range trips.
The cabin measures 4’6″ ft in height, 4’7″ ft in width and 9’8″ ft in length. Has 6 windows which provide natural lighting for a more comfortable atmosphere within the aircraft.
In terms of Avionics, the Mustang uses an all glass Garmin G1000 which is an integrated flight instrument system that consists of two display units.
- Being approved for single pilot flight, this aircraft is perfect for owners who are certified to fly their own.
- In May 2021, Cessna introduced upgrades from Garmin Aviation to the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck. These improvements included enhanced connectivity (GSR 56), improved weather radar (GWX 75), as well as improved retention of ADS-B In / Out transponder diversity. (3)
