And, Cessna now announces a 2013 certification of its new airframe called the Citation M2!
I always did like the Mustang, but I also thought it lacked range and overall performance when compared to the competition. The new M2 is an obvious Mustang upgrade - though company officials claim it to be a CJ1 upgrade.
I think this officially puts my buying decision on hold. 2008, was economically brutal on a lot of companies in aviation, so I think I'll wait until 2013 to finalize my decision. By then, aircraft like the Hawker 200, SyberJet, HondaJet and now the Citation M2, should have enough time to position themselves against completed programs like the Phenom 100, Phenom 300, Cessna Citation CJ-IV and the grandfather of the bunch, the Hawker 400XP - all Single Pilot Certified airframes in the VLJ or LJ classes.
So, it looks like we are going to have a small jet war after all! Score one for General Aviation as a whole!
