WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Cessna Aircraft Co. has unveiled a new light business jet it plans to build at one of its Kansas facilities.
The Citation M2 announced Monday aims to fill the market gap between the company’s Citation Mustang and the Citation CJ planes.
The $4.2 million aircraft has room for two crew members and six passengers. It can go faster and farther than the Mustang with a cruise speed of 400 knots and a range of 1,300 nautical miles.
Cessna President Scott Ernest says no decision has been made about whether the plane will be built at Cessna’s Wichita or Independence plant. He says the plane provides an opportunity to add more employees, but offered no specifics.
He says the company has already sold a few of the planes sight unseen.
