The Citation M2 is the latest iteration of the original 1992 Citation 525 model. The single-pilot Very Light Jet (VLJ) offering from Cessna shares the same fuselage cross-section, cockpit, and engines with 2 other larger Cessna Citation CJ models, the CJ3 and CJ4. The M2 is developed around an all-aluminum airframe with a T-tail and a straight wing with room for two crew and up to six passengers. Since it’s first delivery in March 1993, the Citation M2 has changed its marketing designation two times, first marketed under CitationJet designation then Citation CJ1 and enhanced CJ1+.

The latest M2, recognizable with the small winglets’ addition, introduces more powerful FJ44-1AP-21 engines and GARMIN G3000 avionics in replacement of the Collins Aerospace Pro Line 21 on the previous versions.
