Cessna Mustang BEW data

I'm building a weight and balance app and need an example of what the Basic Empty Weight (BEW), CG and Moment would be for a typical Cessna Mustang biz jet?

Thank you...

I don't have info on the Mustang, but I'm sure you could email Cessna.

But as a loadmaster, weight and balance app has me intrigued.

Yeah, I might have to call Cessna next week.

Loadmaster...that would be for big cargo aircraft, right? You work for UPS or FedEx or are in the Air Force?

I'm attaching a screen shot of my weight and balance app for business jets. One is for the Hawker 850 (which has a very complex weight and balance envelope) and the other one is for the Citation V.

(I attached two files but I don't see them in my post).

Don’t most large jets use %MAC?

Yes, most (probably all) jet aircraft use %MAC. Any aircraft can use it, but aircraft smaller than jets usually do not use %MAC.

A real quick Google search ( https://www.aerocor.com/aircraft-librar ... n-mustang/) says:

Basic Empty Weight 5,359 lbs
Maximum Payload (No Pilot) 1,391 lbs
Useful Load (No Pilot) 3,371 lbs
Fuel Capacity (useable) at 6.70 lb/gal 2,580 lbs

Truer number depends on options added but this will be close.

Yes Indeed I did find that before I posted. But I also need the (BEW) CG and Moment. That's what I can't find.

Call sign Giant. 747, 767, and 777.

I started out in the general aviation sector and will always have a soft spot for GA. So I'm just as interested in the operating aspects of GA aircraft as well as commercial.

Here are those two screen shots I hard trouble loading previously, showing my W&B app. These are links to my Dropbox account.
