Adding Range and Fuel Savings to a Remarkable Platform

The Citation M2 Gen 2 is the latest in a series of aircraft, known as the CE525, that include the Citation CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, and M2. All based on the same aerodynamic design, Cessna has upgraded the popular platform throughout the years following the initial CitationJet FAA certification in 1992. Tamarack President, Jacob Klinginsmith, added, “We’re thrilled to work with the most recent, GEN2, models as well going forward. This is an outstanding aircraft and we’re proud to serve our customers by adding some performance and offering another level of safety for their families or in their charter operations.”
