Private Jet Companies
Citation Mustang Dassault 2000EX
Clyde Cessna started this small company back in 1927 and little did he know then that it would one day go on to become the world’s largest manufacturer of general airplanes and one of the best private jet companies around.
In 2005, Cessna delivered 1,157 aircraft with revenues of about $3.5 billion. Since it was started in 1927 it has produced 187,000 airplanes which have been delivered to nearly every country in the world. The Citation’s are also listed in the top three of best selling business jets of all time.
This plane has been voted the world’s best selling airplane four years running by the General Aviation Manufacturers Association.
One owner of this plane is Angelina Jolie who has her pilot’s license. Brad Pitt has also been seen flying it to earn his wings as well. The starting price is $199,000 for the basic model and $449,000 for the deluxe.
Marcel Bloch was the founder of Dassault but what is most fascinating about his story is why he changed his name.
The story goes that towards the last days of World War II when he was 53 years old,
Marcel changed his surname from Bloch to Dassault in apparent honour of his brother. Darius-Paul was a hero of the French resistance and his code name was “the tank” which in French translates to, char d’assault. And so was born the Dassault legacy.
