The airplane at first seems an odd way for Cessna to innovate to win back market share in the light to midsize bizjet game. At first glance, the neo-Mustang-branded, CJ-platform M2 also seemed a strange way to create the next entry-level Wichita bird. After a few more looks, it’s nothing short of brilliant. With a CJ derivative, you get more speed, a roomier cabin, a nice lav, better legs and proven design all without cutting a single sheet of new metal in the process. Yet Cessna upped the ante by improving the engines, adding FADEC, putting in Garmin touch-controlled glass, and throwing in cutting-edge styling to create an airplane that’s a combination of tried and true and brand spanking new. And they were able to do this while cutting the price by a lot more than a million bucks.
