The Cessna Citation M2 is an American turbofan-powered light corporate jet built by the Cessna Aircraft Company in Wichita, Kansas. The Citation M2 is based on the earlier Model 525 CitationJet (CJ1).

Design and development

The original Model 525 CitationJet was launched in 1989.[2] The M2 was launched in September 2011 and it was described as a new light business jet.[3] The M2 is based on the then out-of-production CJ1 variant and has similar avionics, a new cabin layout, and a more-efficient version of the William FJ44 engine.[3] The M2 first flew on 9 March 2012.[4][5]

The Citation M2 is a low-wing cantilever monoplane with retractable tricycle landing gear, a pressurized cabin, a T-tail, and is powered by two Williams FJ44-1AP-21 turbofan engines that are pylon-mounted on the rear fuselage.

The certification program will involve only one other aircraft, which is expected to join the program in May. The second aircraft (which WILL be considered completely conforming to the certificated design) will be used for aerodynamics testing.
