Haute Jet of the Week: Cessna Citation Mustang

Citation Mustang en vuelo

The Cessna Citation Mustang isn’t so much about the luxurious interior—but if you need to get somewhere fast, this extremely lightweight jet will get you there.


The airframe is primarily of aluminum alloy construction, with a three spar wing. It is a low-wing cantilever monoplane with a swept wing, T-tail and tricycle retractable landing gear. One main door is located in the forward left section of the aircraft, with an additional emergency exit on the center right section of the fuselage.


Inside, the Mustang 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.[2]
