Around 40 members and friends of the association "Citation Mustang Interest Group", short "CMIG", met on 11.05. - 14.05.2023 for the annual general meeting in Oxford, England.

A varied supporting program for the pilots, owners and friends of the Mustang C-510 provided a great positive response.

On Friday evening, members and accompanying persons exchanged ideas intensively in a relaxed atmosphere over a welcome drink at Oxford Airport in the hangar of JMI Maintenance and an original street food truck with fish and chips under musical accompaniment. Textron presented the new Citation M2 Gen2 here, present demo pilots answered all questions competently.

26.01.2023 | Cessna Citation Mustang Meeting in Valencia


From 24.11.22 to 27.11.22 another member meeting of the Citation Mustang Interest Group (CMIG) took place, this time in Valencia. The Spanish port city welcomed the participants with best sunny weather and offered at this time of year a welcome change to the gray November in Germany.

But not only the Mediterranean climate attracted the club members to southern Spain, in Valencia is the most modern and largest maintenance center of Textron Aviation. Unfortunately, despite the support of Execujet Handling, the arrival at the airport was somewhat marred by Spanish regulatory madness. Numerous regulations and an unusual amount of paperwork and registration bureaucracy had to be complied with and mastered in advance.

The tour of the Service Center impressed the enthusiastic participants. Textron offers Scheduled and Unscheduled Maintenance, a complete Paint Booth and an Interior Shop for complete refurbishments. The Hotel Las Arenas Balneario Resort impressed with its location in the first sea line and well-equipped oceanfront rooms.

The actual meeting took place on Saturday. Highlights here were the latest features from RocketRoute, ForeFlight and Garmin. Unfortunately, there was also some need for discussion with Textron on the availability of spare parts, a problem that is affecting all of aviation at the moment. Constantin Hingerl presented his mobile EU wide aircraft reconditioning service Optimum Clean, which is certified by Cessna.

On Sunday, the members received their annual NCC Recurrent training, after which they headed home in all directions.

The Hugo Junkers Hangar not only offered the necessary framework, but also hit the mood of the participants. Dr. Till Werner welcomed them and led into an extensive and highly interesting program. Jan Brill, editor-in-chief of the magazine Pilot & Flugzeug, gave a lecture on the subject: „What can go wrong, goes wrong - error analyzes in HPA aviation“. Dr. Till Werner reported on the experiences with the NXI Phase 2 Update, GSR56 Iridium Phone & Weather, the weather radar GWX75, Wolfgang Östreich from ForeFlight fascinated the participants with the innovations of the program using an example flight with the Citation Mustang.

All participants were eagerly awaiting the presentation by Dirk Reinhart, head of the NCC department at the LBA in Braunschweig, on the subject: „What does the LBA value in an NCC audit and what are the usual mistakes and findings“. In addition to Stefan Bednarz and Kay Kraatz, Martin Görres from Textron Aviation Düsseldorf also provided the latest information from their company. Jürgen Mies, AOPA author of the safety letter, reported on airspace violations and the daily work of AOPA. A tour of the RAS hangars and the presentation of the latest HONDA jet could not be missed due to sponsorship.

Dresden Airport worked extremely professionally, a stroke of luck for all approaching and departing pilots. The Dresden service was simply fantastic. All participants were welcomed with a reception and a tour of the shipyard. The first evening event in the restaurant of the Bülow Palais offered the new members a good opportunity to get to know the association "CMIG" and its members better.

A large number of technical seminars and the Annual General Meeting determined the Saturday from 09:00-19:00. As expected, the board was relieved and confirmed.

On the occasion of the subsequent dinner together, one heard almost exclusively technical discussions among the highly motivated pilots.

07.10.2020 | Citation Mustang Meeting Despite Corona

thumbnail thumbnail

With more than 40 participants, this year's two-day annual general meeting of the CMIG (Citation Mustang Interest Group) was probably the largest aviation event in Corona times nationwide.

In compliance with hygiene regulations, this year's meeting took place from 18 to 20 September 2020 in Lindau on Lake Constance. Friedrichshafen EDNY was chosen as the appropriate airport. Thanks to the proximity to Switzerland and Austria, the participants from these countries and from Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg travelled by car and two even by boat across Lake Constance. Nevertheless, Friedrichshafen was able to welcome 11 Citation Jets and 3 more aircraft for 2-3 days.

Lake Constance Airport proved to be extremely cooperative and customer-oriented. Despite the reduced workforce, the employees of the air traffic control seemed pleased with the choice of their airport and were happy to be able to help shape an event again.

The participants first met on Friday for a welcome reception and a subsequent shipyard tour at AirPlus. Afterwards they went to the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Lindau, the conference hotel. At a hearty dinner at the Max & Moritz Brewery Inn, the participants activated their contacts and took the opportunity to exchange professional experiences.

Saturday was marked by the Annual General Meeting, enriched with a wide range of specialistlectures. There was great praise to the organizers and a repeated desire for a next meeting aloud. The dinner together at the hotel once again offered many opportunities to make new contacts and deepen existing ones, with the expertise dominating at all tables. The four flight jackets, which Cessna raffled off that evening, generated enthusiasm among the winners.

Before the flight home, the pilots had the opportunity to fly a demo with a Bell 505 helicopter, which was used by many in bright weather over Lake Constance.

At the end of September 2019, 25 participants – arrived with 13 aircraft – met in Bremen for the first annual general meeting of the Citation Mustang Interest Group after the foundation of the association in 2018. First there was a reception with a visit of the aircraft maintenance facility at Atlas Air Service, then the annual meeting of the members was hosted by the Lufthansa Airline Academy in Bremen.

Hans-Alfred Kaut, spokesman for CMIG, thanked the 10 founding members and his board colleagues for the perfect support in the founding year, and then reported on the pleasing development of the association. The association now has nearly 30 members, who together operate more than 40 aircrafts, including 36 Citation Mustangs.

The Board of Management and the Treasurer were unanimously exonerated with the abstention of those affected. Since Hans-Alfred Kaut had already declared at the founding meeting that he would only be available for one year for the speaker's mandate, Dr. Till Werner became the speaker and Dr. Klaus Lesker was unanimously appointed as his deputy.

A lively and wide-ranging exchange of experiences and interesting lectures on the topics of accident investigation by Axel Rokohl from the Federal Office for Air Accident Investigation, OM-NCC and the use of ForeFlight in Europe followed.
