MU2 FACTS

The Mitsubishi MU2 is a cabin-class, twin-engine, propeller-driven business aircraft produced between 1967 and 1985. The aircraft can carry between 7 and 10 people in executive configuration, and is used to carry both passengers and cargo.

Despite ceasing production of the MU2 in the 1980s (as did all manufacturers of comparable aircraft with the sole exception of Beechcraft/Raytheon), Mitsubishi continues to this date to provide unmatched support of the MU2 as evidenced by:

  • Best in class ranking in Aviation International News’ Product Support and Service Surveys (2000, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2008)(Best for all turboprops 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2008; for twin- engine turboprops in 2000 and 2004) (#1 for Older and Newer Turboprop – Also Highest Rating for ALL Aircraft (Jets and Turboprops) for 2005, 2006 and 2008)

  • Multi-million dollar sponsorship and support of state-of-the-art simulator training facilities at SimCom, Orlando, Florida – brand-new in 2002

  • Creation and sponsorship of free “Pilot’s Review of Proficiency” Safety Seminars biennially since

1994 and continuing into at least 2010.

These aggressive efforts have played a large part in making the MU2 the safest aircraft in its class today, as is apparent from the following:
