Cessna Mustang Sales Looking Up Down Under
Cessna has sold at least three Citation Mustangs in Australia and New Zealand and predicts it will be a popular aircraft there. “The Mustang makes perfect sense for businesses across Australia, and in New Zealand,” Todd Duhnke, Cessna’s director of international sales, said in a news release. “Performance, price and reliability are all meeting our original projections, and sales have really accelerated since gaining full type certificate in September.” The first Australian Mustang, a demonstrator to be used by dealer Aeromil Pacific, will arrive in August. The second will go to a Queensland businessman who will fly it himself. The first sale to New Zealand was recently confirmed. Cessna says it will deliver 40 Mustangs this year and 100 in 2008.
