What is the Cessna Citation M2?

The Citation M2 was introduced in 2013 as an upgraded version of the Citation Mustang, with a longer and wider cabin that can accommodate up to seven passengers.

Flying magazine writes, “As it turned out, M2 was intended, as one might assume, to sound as if it’s the next logical step after the entry-level Model 510 Mustang, but it wasn’t a Mustang at all. It was, in reality, a Model 525 CitationJet or CJ.”

The Citation M2 Next Gen was introduced in 2021, offering further improvements and enhancements over the original Citation M2.

What are the cabin dimensions of the Cessna Citation M2?

The Citation M2 has a cabin height of 4.75 feet, a width of 4.83 feet, and a length of 11 feet. It has a seating capacity of up to five in the cabin. There is a fully enclosed lavatory in the rear of the cabin.

What is the range of a Cessna Citation M2?

The M2 has a range of up to 1,550 nautical miles (1,783 miles) and a maximum cruise speed of 404 knots (465 mph). It is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F turbofan engines. The M2 also features an advanced avionics suite and improved systems.

How much does a Cessna Citation M2 cost?

The Citation M2 was priced at around $4.5 million when it was first introduced, while the Citation M2 Next Gen is priced at around $5.4 million.

Cessna Citation M2 reviews

I’ll cut to the chase and start with the question that so many people in the market for a first light bizjet ask: Why would anyone not buy a HondaJet? Based on the response of the market, perhaps the biggest reason is the Cessna Citation M2, which while not quite as fast or as roomy as the new kid on the block, has no shortage of other crucial advantages.

With more than 2,200 jets produced in the Citation 525 series, you can find one at almost every business airport around the world. The line encompasses the CitationJet CJ, CitationJet CJ1+ and Citation M2 (525), CJ2 and CJ2+ (525A), CJ3 and CJ3+ (525B), and CJ4 (525C).

Cessna is looking to remake the DNA of its success and beat back encroaching light-jet competition. But can a nearly 25-year-old fuselage design do the trick? The new Citation M2 is a refreshed version of the company’s smallest Model 525, also known as the CJ1—and that airplane has been around for a while. Cessna delivered the first Model 525 CitationJet (CJ) in 1993. It was a replacement for, and vast improvement over, the Citation I. That aircraft had brought Cessna into the civilian jet age and systematically gutted the business turboprop market in the 1970s and 1980s.
