Cessna Aircraft Company announced it has achieved certification in 40 countries for the Citation Mustang entry-level jet.
The Mustang became the first of a new category of entry-level jets to achieve full certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (September 2006) in the United States and the European Aviation Safety Agency (May 2007), which comprises 33 countries. Mustang certification has also been completed in Brazil, Australia, Mexico, Venezuela, South Africa and Lebanon. The certification process is under way in more than a dozen additional countries.
Deliveries in the aircraft’s first year of production have spanned the globe; nearly three of every four Mustangs ordered this year are destined for international customers.
