Roll-out for the 100th Citation M2.

Cessna prepares to deliver the 100th Cessna Citation M2 only two years after certification

Cessna Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. company, today announced at NBAA's Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition in Las Vegas that it recently rolled out its 100th Cessna Citation M2 business jet from its factory less than two years after gaining Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification and is preparing for its delivery next month.

“Since entering the market in December 2013, the Citation M2 has quickly become the best-selling business jet in its class,” said Kriya Shortt, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing. “No comparable light jet can offer the M2's combination of speed, range and payload, making it a great fit for customers in a wide variety of missions around the world.”

The milestone aircraft is scheduled to be delivered in December to Aviation Unmanned, a Dallas-based business providing unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) consultation, training and commercial services.

“Our team is thrilled to take delivery of this special aircraft,” said Blake Stovall, CEO, Aviation Unmanned. “The M2 is a perfect platform to support our company's dynamic operations. As a business with years of experience operating the world's most technologically advanced systems, we appreciate what goes into these aircraft. Safety, reliability and unrivaled technology are critical elements to our business – all determining factors in our decision to select the Citation M2.”

About the Cessna Citation M2

The Citation M2 has a maximum cruise speed of 404 knots true airspeed (464 miles per hour) and a range of 1,540 nautical miles. The aircraft can operate at airports with runways as short as 3,250 feet and will climb to 41,000 feet in 24 minutes. The Citation M2 is designed for single-pilot operation and features two Williams FJ44 engines, Garmin G3000 avionics and seating for seven. The main passenger cabin of the Citation M2 is 58 inches wide and 11 feet long with a 5-inch dropped aisle providing a cabin height of 57 inches. Eight large windows, roomy adjustable seats and intuitive controls highlight the cabin.

Leading the light jet segment

Cessna created and continues to lead the light jet segment, with more than 4,900 light jets delivered, giving customers the widest product range on the market. From the popular entry-level Citation Mustang and M2 jets, to the efficiency and comfort of the CJ3+ and the top-performing CJ4, Cessna's light business jets have evolved to offer a range of capabilities, systems and options unmatched in its class.
