The twin engine VLJis a nice choice for shorter trips, combining the comfort of a jet with the economy and shorter field performance of the Turboprop.
Very Light Jets (VLJs) are small light aircraft that typically hold a small group of 4 or 5 passengers comfortably. The very light jets are a fairly new category of aircraft, and thus are equipped with the very latest in jet engine technology which delivers the speed, quality, and fuel efficiency that allow for a more cost effective means of private jet travel.
Most of the deliveries to date have been to owner operators so
charter availability can be limited. For years we have been
presenting VLJ’s to our customers saving them substantial dollars and improving the quality of their flight experience.
If you would like more information on the VLJ for charter, please contact us or request a flight quote. We look forward to helping you plan your next trip!
The Phenom 300is a light jet, developed by Embraer in 2005 and put into operation in 2009. According to Embraer, “the goal was to bring forth innovative solutions that would redefine the standard for both performance and comfort and offer advanced technologies, from the flight deck to the cabin, that previously were found only on much larger, more expensive jets. The best-selling light business jet in the world seven years in a row, Embraer’s Phenom 300 made waves as the fastest, most efficient and longest-range single-pilot aircraft in the market.”
The Phenom 300 is one of the most requested jets for charter with its impressive range and performance, able to travel 2268 statute miles before needing a fuel stop. The Phenom 300 cruises at
average speeds of 495 mph with impressive short runway
capabilities, allowing it to be chartered in and out of smaller airports getting passengers closer to their destination. The Phenom 300 is best-in-class for single-pilot jets with its notable design, innovation and technological advancements.
The Phenom 300 can fly with ease from Dallas to New York or Palm Springs to Washington D.C. without a fuel stop. It is able to fly at higher altitudes (45,000 ft. service ceiling to avoid inclement
weather) and take off and land from higher elevations than most competitor aircraft. The Phenom 300 offers the lowest fuel
consumption in its class and produces significantly less CO2 than both older and newer comparable aircraft. It can also be fueled in just 12 minutes from empty to full!
The Phenom 300’s cabin seats six passengers comfortably. This jet boasts the largest windows and baggage compartment in its class and features beautiful interior design by BMW. Even the lavatory seat has a window, not typical in light jets. Taking a closer look at the cabin, the Phenom 300 showcases clean lines, lots of natural light from the special “Oval Lite” window design and luxurious leather and wooden details. The cabin offers WiFi, an on-board entertainment system, refreshment center and a state-of-the-art glass cockpit with an integrated avionics system by Garmin.
The cabin measures 17′ 2″ in length, 4′ 10″ in height and 5′ 1″ in width. The external baggage space in the Phenom 300 is generous at 74 cubic feet and can hold several pieces of luggage including
suitcases, golf clubs and skis.
Phenom 300s are in demand and popular for charter passengers and pilots for their cabin comforts, cutting-edge technology, fuel
efficiency and range.

The Embraer Legacy 600 is a highly regarded heavy jet known for its superior cabin amenities and overall performance. The Legacy 600 has a class-leading, three-zone cabin configuration, a visibly larger lavatory and plenty of baggage space for all passengers.
According to Embraer, “the aircraft was developed to cost
effectively meet the air travel needs of corporations, successful
entrepreneurs and heads of state. Designed using the highly
successful ERJ 135 platform, the Legacy 600 combines cabin
comfort, performance and operating efficiency.”
The Legacy 600 is fully equipped for business, but also designed with passenger comforts in mind. The three-zone cabin allows for work and relaxation to take place simultaneously without interfering with one another. The cabin measures at 6′ in height, 6′ 11″ in width and 42′ 3″ in length. Some of the technological amenities include: WiFi, power outlets, a multi-line phone system, two 17-inch flat screen TV monitors, DVD player, LED lighting, a Honeywell Ovation Select™ cabin management system, and a conference table area. The galley of the Legacy 600 is also quite impressive and often includes: a
convection and microwave oven, a cutting board, electrical outlets, wine chiller, and refrigerator. With the largest, most spacious cabin, lavatory and baggage space (286 cubic feet) of most heavy jets, the Legacy 600 offers something for everyone.
As far as performance goes, the Legacy 600 does not disappoint. This jet has two Rolls Royce AE3007A1E high-bypass, turbofan, dual FADEC engines, allowing it a range of 3912 statue miles and a cruise speed of 598 mph, carrying up to 14 passengers. The engines are both fuel-efficient and quiet, the best of both worlds. Some of the seats on this aircraft also lay flat for a pleasant sleeping
experience, while 22 large windows provide a more spacious feel.
It is not just passengers who enjoy flying in the Legacy 600. Keeping with the theme of spaciousness, pilots love the large cockpit and Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics suite with the latest advancements in aviation technology. For a jet of its size, the Legacy 600 is also
remarkably inexpensive to operate and compares in costs to smaller jets. Embraer commends the Legacy 600 for its “outstanding
operational flexibility in: busy air spaces, terrain-challenged airports and poor weather conditions.”
All in all, Embraer has demonstrated a clear understanding of the needs of business travelers and has exceeded expectations in
performance, cabin luxuries and pilot operations.
