Cessna MustangAs the world's leading builder of business jets with more than 5,000 Citations delivered, Cessna is accustomed to success. But even in that family of winners, the Mustang stands out. The Mustang achieved every performance guarantee Cessna made when it announced the program, and it accomplished all of that exactly on schedule. We can't think of another clean-sheet airplane design that has matched or exceeded every speed, runway length, range and payload goal initially, and to do all of that on schedule is exceedingly rare. The Mustang also received almost immediate certification from the European authorities, another very unusual accomplishment. And pilots and operators have responded, placing more than 350 orders for Mustangs as Cessna ramps up production to perhaps as many as 100 for 2008.
