Today Cessna announced at the National Business Aviation Association convention in Las Vegas that Stuart Woods, the best selling author, is the launch customer for the Cessna Citation M2.
The M2 took its maiden flight in August 2013 and will be certified for single-pilot operation and has seating configurations for six passengers. The aircraft will be fitted with Garmin G3000 avionics.
Stuart Woods said: “I am glad to be on the cutting edge at this moment with this airplane. I am grateful to have the M2, grateful to be able to see it go through the line, to see how carefully everything is built. It brings me a great sense of comfort.”
Woods recently visited the Cessna production facility in Independence, Kansas and after the visit flew to Wichita for a book signing in his Citation Mustang.
“I am looking forward to flying from New York to Key West, Fla., in three and a half hours at 400 knots without stopping to refuel. I do two book tours a year, usually coast to coast, so about 90 percent of my flying is for business. I’m looking forward to great things from the M2, and my wife is looking forward to being the co-pilot,” Woods added.
