The Cessna Citation Mustang
The Cessna Citation Mustang is a beautiful aircraft and it is not yet in IF :( It is a very light private jet made by Cessna. My friends dad flys this plane all the time and is an awesome plane. I think this would be a really fun plane to fly in the sim because I got the exact plane in X Plane 11 and it is very fun to fly. IF always makes high quality planes so I think that it would be very similar. We need more private jets and this one is so different compared to all of the other small jets.
Why the mustang? There’s so many other jet
N1? What’s that! Never worry about overworking the engines. The engines are all monitored by a computer so you can’t go over 100% N1. No matter what!
Easy power settings! Since everything is all done by a computer the plane automatically sets takeoff, cruise, climb power. If you tell it to. I think this could be simulated because it is simulated in X-Plane 11
G1000 Cockpit! The mustang has a nice G1000 cockpit which will be a live cockpit. It has 3 screens. (Very similar to TBM 930 cockpit in IF)
Best in class takeoff and landing distance. The plane only requires 3,110ft to takeoff and only 2,380ft to land. This makes it so you can land at almost any airport.
De-Icing capability’s. Since IF is about to add clouds, ice simulation must come soon. Ice is not problem for the Mustang. It uses bleed air and boots for de-icing. When using the bleed air you lose about 30% power so hopefully that would be simulated in the simulator.
FD shoes best climb pitch. The FD shows what your pitch should be to climb.
It’s so unique! There is no plane like the Mustang.
Why this over the Citation X or the Gulfstreams?
This plane has so many features listed above that no other private jets have. It is also very different than the Citation X and the Gulfstream Series. The planes I mentioned above are a lot bigger making them faster. The planes above are large business jets and they carry more than twice as many passengers compared to the Mustang. Those planes need an over mile runway and the Mustang only needs about 3,000ft.
Without a doubt the Mustang is better 🤣
