Would love that. And one for the Phenom 100 too would be nice.
When you have time..... :thumbup:

This Mustang thread has been hugely helpful and informative. Also was Mike's thread on Williams engines.


I have 1000 hours and 6-years in the Phenom 100. I'd be happy to answer questions. The numbers in FLTPLAN.com are spot on. My aircraft cruises 5 knots faster than book and the engine numbers (%N1, lbh) are dead-on; crazy accurate book numbers.

I am at one year under my belt with the mustang. My 1000nm commute had a 100% non stop success rate. Was close a couple times at just under 4 hours, but regardless, I am impressed. It performs as advertised, and then some. Never had to postpone due to weather, was always cruising in the sunshine, have carried a ton, and had minimal downtime for maintenance. Absolutely love the Mustang.


May I ask, how many pounds of fuel do you have after landing?

Sometimes over a 1000. Other times, when into a strong headwind, just over or just under 600. I believe my max time flight, which was 3 hr 58 minutes, I shut down at hangar with 580 pounds. Got held down lower than I like out of Fl that time as well.

With Jet-A getting so cheap, it’s changed the flight planning strategy for SP jets. Now, you just flightplan for minimizing flight time and burn the extra fuel.


Very good point!!

Fast is fun too!

I'll get it done. I think there has already been a thread comparing the two.

I actually view them differently and have a hard time comparing the two... we use to say that Citation finds the gaps between other airplanes and their individual strengths and fills in the gap :)

I would just change the title a little. I would reword it to if you have a jet mission, the Mustang is just about perfect. Might seem like semantics, but as someone who has really looked at getting a Mustang several times through the years....

My take on it, is it really shines when you need to fly far and fast, and can get high. The perfect trip is 750 nm from nice runway to nice runway. On short, low altitude missions which is the norm for an owner pilot, it is not so perfect. If your missions are mixed, like a lot of GA owner pilots, and involve shorter flights, Training flights, hamburger runs, short fields, high, hot, short fields, contaminated runways, it just not the best tool. Is a nice aircraft though. ;-).



Chuck, I’m curious, what is the best tool then? Because I am the GA owner pilot you speak of!

Cody, don’t play coy. You already have the right tool for that job!
