Cessna Model 525 celebrates 25 years


Cessna recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of the maiden flight of the Model 525 Citation Jet (CJ) prototype. The maiden flight took place on April 29, 1991, with deliveries starting two years later. Eight platforms have been certified within the 525 light jet line. Cessna has delivered more than 1,800 Model 525 aircraft, including the current production M2, CJ3+ and CJ4.

“We’re closing in on 2,000 Model 525s delivered to customers around the globe; nearly three times that of our nearest competitor,” said Kriya Shortt, senior vice president, sales and marketing at the company. “We continue to innovate in this segment, driving significant investment in our products based on our customers’ evolving mission requirements.”

Cessna has delivered more than 4,900 light jets. The line ranges from the entry-level Citation Mustang and Citation M2 jets to the upgraded efficiency and comfort of the CJ3+ and the top-performing CJ4. In total, Cessna has delivered 6,900 Citation jets to customers around the world.
