Cessna Aircraft Company announced that the first charter certificate for the Citation Mustang has been issued to L.J. Aviation.
Based at Latrobe, Pa., L.J. Aviation offers domestic and international charter flights using a fleet of 28 aircraft, including 11 Citations: one Mustang, three Bravos, two Ultras, one Encore, one VII, two Excels and one Sovereign. The fleet will soon be expanded with one Citation CJ3 and one Citation XLS+.
“Our diverse fleet can accommodate a wide variety of charter requests. The addition of the Citation Mustang and its low operating cost will allow L.J. Aviation to provide the comfort and flexibility of charter flight to customers who have previously been unable to afford it,” said Ed Kilkeary, Sr., president and chief executive officer of L.J. Aviation.
The Mustang became the first of a new category of entry-level jets to achieve full certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (September 2006) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (May 2007)
