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.
