The Mustang is a low-wing cantilever monoplane with a swept wing, T-tail and tricycle retractable landing gear. One main door is located in the forward left section of the aircraft, with an additional emergency exit on the center right section of the fuselage.

The airframe is primarily of aluminum alloy construction, with a three spar wing.

Power is provided by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F turbofan engines, mounted in pods on the aft fuselage.
