Cessna Aircraft Company announced that the Citation Mustang has been named “Product of the Year” by The Aviation Consumer.
"We base our selection on a product’s outstanding value achievement and impact on the market. With the Citation Mustang, it’s not just the airplane itself — although it´s impressive. It’s the achievement of producing it on time, on budget and on the numbers," said Aviation Consumer Editor Paul Bertorelli.
The Cessna Citation Mustang became the first new-generation entry level jet to achieve full Federal Aviation Administration type certification on September 8, 2006. Cessna has delivered nearly 20 Mustangs and is well on its way to meet another target: delivering 44 aircraft in 2007.
