Cessna's New Citation M2 Light Business Jet

  1. Cessna Citation M2 business jet

    What is the Citation M2? This is Cessna’s new Light business jet that bridges the gap between the CJ and Citation Mustang models. The new Citation M2 is run by two FADEC-controlled Williams International turbofans - FJ44-1AP-21-. These new engines are billed for better performance with approximately a ten to fifteen percent dependent on conditions. It is also more efficient on fuel consumption in long-range cruising mode over the previous engine set model.
  2. The new light business jet will come with a 4.195-million dollar price tag. She will be seating as many as six passengers in the comfortable and contemporary themed cabin. The dimensions of the passenger cabin are respectable. From the cockpit divider aft through the rear lavatory, the main passenger cabin of the Citation M2 is 58-inches wide (1.47-meters) and 11-feet (3.3-meters) long with a 5-inch dropped aisle providing a cabin height of 57-inches (1.45-meters). The cabin is pierced by eight (four on either side) large windows to maximize views outward and let in natural light when needed. Everything has been re-thought from the roomy pedestal seats and technologically advanced as well as the luxury cabin appointments underscore the all-new interior. Some customizing can be had in the area of materials and colour choices by discerning customers.
  3. According to Cessna President and CEO, Scott Ernest, “operator feedback and owner insight have indicated a market for a Citation with the size, speed and range of the Citation M2. We expect to see customers new to the Citation family, Mustang owners looking for a logical next step or CJ1+ operators who want a new, more advanced Citation.”

    The new Cessna M2 is being built of aluminum with straight wings and T-tail. If you want to see this aircraft, you won’t see an actual full aircraft however, a mock-up cabin will be at the Cessna stand at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) in Las Vegas, Nevada (October 10th to 12th 2012). With first flights conducted, work is ongoing to get the aircraft model FAA certified by the first half of 2013. Subsequently, deliveries to customers will occur in the second half of 2013.

    The forward end of the jet, the cockpit, is state-of-the-art with top-notch avionics from Garmin. She flaunts the G3000 avionics suite with three large primary multi-functional displays. The top cruising speed is around 400-knots with a 1,300-nautical mile range. Cessna suggests the aircraft can operate at airports with runways as short as 3,250 feet (991 meters) and will climb to 41,000 feet (12,497 meters) in 24 minutes.
