In proposed special certification conditions for the Citation Mustang published last month in the Federal Register, the FAA revealed some weights for the VLJ that Cessna has not disclosed. The notice listed the mtow as 8,395 pounds; max landing weight, 7,850 pounds; zero fuel weight, 6,500 pounds. Cessna would not confirm the numbers, saying they would “not be final until certification, at which point, [the company] will publicly release specifications” for the Mustang.
