Cessna is offering a new interior option for the Cessna Mustang called the High Sierra Edition. It was unveiled during EAA AirVenture.
It features special luxury editions of the three currently offered interiors, a special paint scheme, a Garmin G1000 with Synthetic Vision Technology, electronic charts, locking fuel caps, and a unique service and parts programs.
“The special High Sierra Edition gives our customers more luxurious interior and exterior options to outfit their Mustang,” said Roger Whyte, Cessna’s senior vice president of sales and marketing.
The Citation Mustang is the world’s first fully certified entry-level business jet. The program was announced at the 2002 National Business Aviation Association convention, and the aircraft made its first flight in April 2005.
Coming in at slightly more than $3 million (2010 delivery), the Mustang features Garmin avionics, Pratt & Whitney Canada engines, and a maximum 1,200-nautical-mile range.
AOPA Pilot Senior Editor Alton Marsh has been a pilot since 1970 and has an airline transport pilot certificate and instrument and multiengine flight instructor certificates, aerobatic training, and a commercial seaplane certificate.
Flight Display Systems now lets passengers control their cabin environment and entertainment from a wearable device that looks like a watch.
Universal Avionics now offers the Insight Integrated Flight Deck with embedded synthetic vision.
Standardized training offered by Cirrus is now accepted by OpenAirplane, thanks to an agreement between the companies.
