The Cessna Citation Mustang is considered an entry level business jet. In the standard configuration, the Cessna Citation Mustang has four passenger seats in the aft cabin and seating for two in the cockpit. Like other small business jets, the Cessna Citation Mustang is certified to fly without a co-pilot.
The Cessna Citation Mustang first flew on April 23rd, 2005 and received full type certification from the FAA on September 8th, 2006. This was a historic moment for Cessna and the Cessna Citation Mustang in general because the Cessna Citation Mustang was the first of its class to receive full type certification. It was also the first to receive certification to fly into known-icing conditions, the first VLJ to be delivered to a customer, and it is from the first company to obtain the FAA Production Certificate for a VLJ.
The Cessna Citation Mustang airframe is constructed primarily of aluminum alloys, with a three spare wing group. One main door is located in the forward left section of the aircraft, with an additional emergency exit located on the center right section of the aircraft.
Unlike many light jets, there is no overhead panel. All the switches and gauges are on the instrument panel and the center console. The thrust levers, pitch trim wheel, flap lever, an alphanumeric keypad for the Flight Management System and the switches for aileron and rudder trim are also located on the center console. The instrument panel is dominated by the huge, centrally mounted multi-function display (MFD) and each pilot has a large Primary Flight Display (PFD).
The Cessna Citation Mustang is powered by Two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F turbofan engines, mounted in pods on the aft fuselage. The landing gear is fully retractable and is equipped with anti-skid protection.

"I found the Flight1 Cessna Mustang to be a highly accurate depiction of its real world counterpart. Taken and viewed in its parts, external visual model, 2D panels, virtual cockpit, virtual cabin, sound set, flight dynamics they are all representative of the state of the art in FSX add-on aircraft. May the good old days never return, this is neat stuff. If you don't already have it, put it on your Christmas list." - AVSIM Online
"This aircraft is remarkable, so much so that if I had the money I truthfully think I would consider purchasing the real Mustang. The performance is just incredible. The feel and information available is second to none and it is an overall well modeled detailed aircraft! The exterior lacks nothing! The 2D panel lacks a few systems but again that's an FSX limitation. This aircraft was a real joy to fly and has probably become one of my favorite add-ons." - Flightsim.com
"So how would I regard the Flight1 Mustang? I think the answer to that is that I haven't flown anything else since its release, partly as a result of writing this review and also because I happen to be enjoying the product very much. Now, with the inclusion of SID's and STAR's and Navigraph updates, I feel confident, that the Flight1 Mustang will quickly become just as successful (if not more so) as the developers other products." - Mutley's Hangar - Full Review
"Very often, when it comes to a flight sim product, you can tell immediately whether the developer has access to real aircraft and flight data, and the endorsement and collaboration with Cessna on the Flight1 Mustang is testament to the fact that authenticity and realism was the project goal. The Mustang packs a lot of functionality into a very small aircraft." - PC Pilot Platinum Award, Issue 64
"Business jets are among my favorite aircraft to fly in a flight simulation environment. I have always been a bit disappointed in one way or another with these jets. Flight1 has surprised me by excelling in almost every area which has been a pain to me in prior jet add-ons. I would very highly recommend this product to any virtual pilot who desires familiarity with business jets, jet transition and especially G1000 avionics procedures in an FS environment." - HavetoFly.Com
"You really do realize that this is one sophisticated aircraft with nearly everything electronically monitored and controlled. The development team of the Flight1 Citation Mustang did an amazing job pulling off a near perfect replication of this aircraft's computerized systems. While I can go on and on about the features of the Flight1 Cessna Citation Mustang, I have to stop at some point. It is a great plane to add to any hangar." - FSBreak, June 14th Podcast
