Mustang belongs to the class of very light jet aircraft (very light jet – VLJ), created by Cessna. In a standard configuration, Mustang has four passenger seats, a toilet, and seats for two pilots. Like most light aircraft, the Mustang can be controlled by a single pilot.

Citation Mustang – a twin-engine jet aircraft with a low wing, T-tail, and three-landing gear. The main door of the aircraft is located in the left front of the fuselage, also in the central part of the fuselage is an emergency hatch. Aluminum airplane glider with a three-section wing. The power plant is two P&W Canada PW615F jet engines mounted on pylons at the rear of the aircraft.

Unlike most other VLJs, there are no overhead control panels in the Citation Mustang cockpit – all toggle switches and switches are concentrated on the instrument panel and center console. The latter also houses Ores, a trimmer steering wheel, flap control levers, a flight control system keyboard, and toggle and aileron trim tabs. The aircraft is equipped with the Garmin G1000 avionics kit with the highest degree of integration, not only complements the main systems but also directly controls them. Combining all the initial flight information, navigation, engines, and data from numerous sensors, Garmin with three easy-to-read multifunction displays significantly reduces the workload, minimizing all kinds of switching and provides the ultimate in situational awareness.
