Cessna's latest Citation business jet, the M2, took to the skies for the first time on 9 March. The flight, from Cessna's facility in Wichita, Kansas, lasted around
1h 30min during which the light cabin jet's G3000 avionics, autopilot,
instrument approaches, engine and aircraft systems were tested. The Williams International FJ44-powered twinjet is based on the
out-of-production CJ1 (Model 525) featuring a 400kt (740km/h) maximum
cruise speed. The eight-seat M2 is priced at $4.2 million.
