Deliveries of Cessna's Citation Mustang may resume following the FAA's approval of a fix for a software glitch in the aircraft's Garmin G100 avionics suite. The first Mustang was delivered Nov. 22, with the second delivered into demo service last week and showcased on the grounds at Sun 'n Fun in Lakeland, Fla., this week. Cessna says it's on track to deliver 40 Mustangs this year with further deliveries planned for this month. "The production facility is ramping up," Roger Whyte, senior vice president of sales and marketing, told AVweb this week.

As AVweb reported Monday, the Mustang is making its international debut on Thursday at the biannual Aero Friedrichshafen general aviation trade show in Germany. Cessna expects to obtain European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification for the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW615F-powered twinjet later this year in time for the first delivery in Europe.
