Ascend in the Best-in-Class Phenom 300

Photo Credits: Embraer

The Phenom 300 is 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 Nextant 400XTi: Reimagined. Rebuilt. Reborn.

“The Nextant 400XTi is one of the fastest aircraft in the sky, getting you to your destination quicker than anything else in this cabin size. And it goes further, with an operational radius that puts whole new territories within reach. Its ergonomically designed cabin optimizes space and efficiency while low-noise levels minimize fatigue. Fully equipped to support high-value users, its data and communications systems ensure maximum productivity at all times.” – Nextant Aerospace

The Nextant 400XT is an upgraded (re-manufactured) version of both the BeechJet 400 and Hawker 400XP, two of the most popular light jets available for charter.  These jets were transformed from nose to tail to optimize performance and functionality, while lowering the overall operational costs. The Nextant 400 XTi was later launched as an improved version of the Nextant 400 XT.  The improved Nextant boasts new engines, improvements in aerodynamics, a new avionics suite and completely redesigned cabin. Compared to its predecessor, the Hawker 400XP, the Nextant 400XT/XTi is faster and can fly 50 percent further while consuming significantly less fuel. 88% of the Nextant 400XT/XTi aircraft is new and improved compared to the BeechJet 400/Hawker 400XP.

The Nextant 400XT/XTi has a virtually silent cabin that passengers love for both its comfort and privacy. The unique and customizable cabin design features flat floors, additional headroom, and several seating arrangements. Passengers will enjoy the improved HD entertainment systems and enhanced productivity technologies, allowing them to work or leisurely pass the time. The Nextant 400XTi also has a Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite found in newer private jet cockpits.

The interior of the Nextant 400XT/XTi can comfortably fit 8 passengers with several different cabin configurations including club and divan seating options. The cabin is over 15 feet long, 4′ 9″ tall and 4′ 11″ wide. The interior also has a full-service galley and increased space in the lavatory. The Nextant 400XT/XTi has ample baggage space providing a total of 56 cubic feet of internal and external storage.

The Nextant 400XT/XTis are favorites amongst private fliers. The Nextant 400XT/XTis are popular because they offer all the perks of a new jet as far as range (2305 statute miles), speed (466 mph average) and cabin comforts (362 ft³ cabin volume) – all at an unmatched value.

The Challenger 605: All-Encompassing Enhancements

The Bombardier Challenger 605 is the fifth jet of the Challenger 600 series and it has earned its place in a line of exemplary jets. An
upgrade to the Challenger 604,  the Challenger 605 offers several enhancements. Challenger 600 models have become the most sought after and versatile jets in the heavy jet category, and the 605 is no exception.

The Challenger 605 is powered with two General Electric CF34-3B engines that allow it to fly coast-to-coast and to many destinations abroad without a fuel stop. This aircraft has a range of around 4,274 statute miles with 8 passengers on board, at an average speed of 515 mph. The Challenger 605 features the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 Integrated Avionics System, a larger display, turbulence
detection radar, and fewer control panels to improve pilot efficiency, among other features. The 605 has a 200 lb payload improvement over the Challenger 604 due to better fuel economy, as well as
improvements in weight distribution. Maintenance procedures have also been streamlined, allowing for a better overall experience for pilots and passengers alike.

The cabin of the Challenger 605 is very spacious with 6′ 1″ of
standing height,  28′ 5″ in length, and measures over 8′ 2″ in width, making it the widest stand-up cabin in its class. Like the
Challenger 604, cabin space can be configured into a 12-passenger conference space, in a double-club, forward or half club, or divan arrangement. This aircraft will accommodate 8-12 passengers comfortably as well as 2 crew members and a flight attendant. The Challenger 605 also has a generous baggage compartment providing 115 cubic feet of external storage that is accessible during flight.

The cabin improvements consist of 30% more natural lighting due to the larger, higher windows, larger LCD video monitors, improved work tables, more lighting throughout the cabin, new acoustical
insulation reducing interior noise and improvements to the cabin electronic system. The galley offers a better ergonomic design and more storage space. The full lavatory has also been upgraded from its predecessor to improve comfort. It is not hard to see why the Challenger 605 (and all the Challenger jets) are a favorite of private fliers.

The Challenger 605 is a fantastic option for travelers seeking a modern heavy jet that offers unmatched comfort, dependability,
efficiency and luxury.

Falcon 7X: “The benchmark for the 21st century business jet”

Photo credits: Dassault Falcon

At the top of its class, the Falcon 7X outperforms its competitors in range, efficiency, comfort, technology and design. The 7X is a heavy jet that delivers on all the promises it makes to both pilots and passengers.

Dassault’s Falcon 7X has revolutionized the business jet market with the industry’s first Digital Flight Control System, backed by
Dassault’s 30 years of military experience.
Transferred directly from Dassault’s fighter jets, this technology gives more precise handling and reduces workload, improving safety. It also mitigates the effects of turbulence for a smooth and quiet ride.

Photo Credits: Dassault Falcon

The Falcon 7X’s cabin is taller, wider and designed for an ideal travel experience with 28 windows, ambient lighting, three spacious
climate-controlled lounge areas, and technology that makes the
cabin quiet for work or rest.  The air inside the cabin is humidified and the cabin pressure at 41,000 feet feels like 3,950 feet. While all Falcon 7Xs come standard with a full galley and lavatory, some also come equipped with a second lavatory or an on-board shower,
ensuring passengers have everything they need for a pleasant flight and are ready and rested when they arrive at their destination.

According to Dassault, “the advanced cabin management system provides a full complement of entertainment and connectivity tools in an exceptionally user-friendly format. Work, relax, manage cabin features, track flight progress and communicate — and do it all using your own portable devices from anywhere in the cabin. FalconCabin HD+ also includes Skybox, the media server with vast iTunes video and music capacity.”

This aircraft has a range of around 6,100 statute miles with 12
passengers on board and flies at an average speed of 548 mph. The Falcon 7X has a fuel consumption that is 15 to 30% lower than other heavy jets and is powered by three Pratt & Whitney engines,
delivering 6,400 pounds of thrust each. Most impressively, it can fly multiple short and long trips without refueling.

The highly intuitive cabin of the Falcon 7X is very spacious
measuring 39 feet in length, 7.6 feet in width, and offering over 6 feet of standing height. This aircraft will accommodate 10-12
passengers comfortably, as well as 2 crew members and a flight
attendant. The Falcon 7X also has a generous baggage compartment providing 131 cubic feet of storage space.

Other notable features of this jet include: the fly-by-wire system that gives pilots greater control by limiting the pitch of the aircraft, a completely new wing design and unique aerodynamics allowing it to take-off and land at slower speeds giving it access to thousands of small airports. With all of these state-of-the-art enhancements, it is easy to see why the Falcon 7X is a heavy jet favorite.

Where Will Your Legacy Take You?

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′ 10″ in width and 49′ 9″ 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 3740 statue miles and a cruise speed of 528 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.

Lear 45: Eight is Enough

Learjet45

The Learjet 45’s cabin can accommodate 8 passengers and a flightcrew of two. Passengers love the 8 captains chairs that come standard on board. The additional legroom, galley storage, full width aft restroom, and wider than average seats offer passengers a comfortable and practical experience. This jet also offers work tables that fold down from the walls and a quiet, temperature controlled cabin, ideal for working from the air. The Learjet 45 has an external baggage compartment that provides 50 cubic feet of baggage space and another 15 cubic feet of internal storage. The Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics suite comes standard on the Learjet 45XR and includes a 3-D approach navigation system.

The Bombardier Learjet 45 was first introduced at the US National Business Aircraft Association’s annual convention in 1992, and the first consumer aircraft was delivered in 1998. The Learjet 45 was designed to replace the Learjet 35 and offers the classic Learjet layout with enhanced and improved design features. In 2004, the Learjet 45 evolved into the Learjet 45XR which offers an upgraded engine and improved climbing performance.

Learjet 45 Interior

The Learjet 45, and newer Learjet 45XR, are categorized within the light jet class, but offer many of the features and benefits found in midsize jets. When looking at performance, the Learjet 45 excels in both high and low speed handling, runway performance and fuel efficiency. On the interior, the Learjet 45 was designed to offer the most passenger space possible for a light jet.

When comparing the cruise performance, the Learjet 45 is top in its class. It can cruise at speeds of 489 mph and is able to fly 1,597 statute miles nonstop. This jet also offers the most advanced anti-ice system of any light or midsize jet, can complete a 1,000 statute mile trip in just over 2 hours, and the 904-gallon fuel system can be filled rapidly in about 10 minutes, offering very quick turnaround. The Learjet 45 really shines at cruise altitude and offers exceptional handling capabilities, as well as fuel economy. The Learjet 45 and Learjet 45XR are great options for anyone looking for a cost-effective light jet that offers superior performance.

The Citation Encore is able to operate out of shorter airfields, allowing it to takeoff and land in places typically suitable only for turboprops. The cabin measures at 4′ 9″ in height, 4′ 10″ in width and 17′ 2″ in length. The cabin offers amenities usually found in larger jets such as a full refreshment center and fully-enclosed lavatory.

The cabin amenities can also include XM satellite radio, Airshow entertainment system, DVD Player, individual flat panel entertainment systems, Bose noise-cancelling headphones, a satellite phone, a refreshment center and fully-enclosed lavatory.

Experience the Smooth and Speedy Lear 60

The Bombardier Learjet 60 received FAA certification in 1993 as an improved version of the Learjet 55. The Learjet 60 has a longer
fuselage than the Learjet 55 and also contains more powerful
engines and several improvements that make it more aerodynamic than its predecessor. The Learjet 60  was designed with an all-new inboard wing cuff and wing-to-body fairing, and a new engine pylon to accommodate the new turbofan engines.

The Learjet 60 is renowned for its performance. At max weight, this jet can climb to 43,000 feet in less than 14 minutes. The Learjet 60 is also noted for its ability to climb quickly to high cruise levels at fast cruise speeds. It has a transcontinental range of 2,453 sm and once at cruise level, it can reach speeds of up to 502 mph. It is not only a very reliable jet, but it is also an economical option compared to other aircraft in the midsize jet class and more comparable to many light jets as far as fuel consumption.

Steve Schulte Photography

The cabin of the Learjet 60 is the largest in the Learjet family.
Typically able to hold 7-8 passengers, the cabin is very spacious with amenities like fold-out work tables, a radio phone, microwave, and coffee maker, amongst others. The Learjet 60 has an external
baggage compartment that provides 24 cubic feet of baggage space and another 24 cubic feet of internal storage.

Passengers love the Learjet 60 because it offers smoother flights, even when flying through turbulence. The nosewheel steering
system allow for better ground handling, and stronger wheel brakes help with landings and ground control.

Production of the Learjet 60 ended in 2007 when Bombardier
introduced the current Learjet 60XR model. It is an improved
version of the 60, offering more efficient use of the interior space. It is also the first to use PW305 turbofan engines instead of
General Electric engine models, helping it excel in performance
compared to its competitors. The 60XR also features many design improvements over previous Learjets including: a digital
steer-by-wire nosewheel, drag-reducing winglets, and a heated windshield, just to name a few.

Both the Learjet 60 and Learjet 60XR are great options for anyone looking for a cost-effective midsize jet that offers exceptional
performance.
