The Citation M2: Cessna’s Latest Light
Launched in 2011, the Citation M2 is the newest addition to the CitationJet 525 series small business jets. It fits perfectly between the Mustang and the Citation Jet 1 in the Cessna jet lineup. The Citation M2 is sleek, stylish and more efficient than its predecessors, with a completely overhauled interior, longer range and ability to travel at faster speeds.
The Citation M2 is a single-pilot light jet, able to travel 1772 statute miles before needing a fuel stop. Equipped with two Williams FJ44 turbofan engines and 1965 pounds of takeoff thrust, the Citation M2 cruises at average speeds of 465 mph. The M2 can maintain maximum cruise speed up to 39,000 feet, with a maximum altitude of 41,000 feet.
Pilots love the Citation M2. For starters, it was designed for single-pilot operation. The roomy cockpit is equipped with the new Garmin G3000 touchscreen avionics system and is built to work with the latest navigation and air traffic control systems. The M2 can get in and out of airports with shorter runways with ease, getting closer to the end destination and decreasing total travel time, another bonus for pilots and passengers alike.
Standard avionics include:
- Garmin FMS with dual WAAS-enabled GPS receivers for
- Weather Avoidance Radar
- Terrain Avoidance Warning System (TAWS-B)
- Garmin Traffic Collision and Avoidance System (TCAS I)
- Dual Altitude Heading Reference System
- Dual Air Data computers

The cabin in the Citation M2 is roomier than one may expect, able to comfortably fit 4-5 passengers, with an enclosed lavatory and adjustable club seating. The seats slide sideways toward the aisle, allowing for ample passenger headroom while in flight. The cabin is about 5 feet wide and 11 feet long, with a cabin height of 4′ 9″. The eight large windows also give the cabin a more spacious feel. Other amenities include: climate control, in-cabin technologies, and adjustable lighting. The M2 is able to carry 725 pounds of baggage in 46 cubic feet of storage space divided between two storage areas.
