Bombardier Learjet 40 XR

Capacity: 7 Passengers
Speed: 465 Knots
Altitude: 51,000 ft
Range: 1,991 Nautical Miles

The Bombardier Learjet 40 XR business jet is, without question, the premium aircraft in today’s light jet category, outperforming its competitors on almost every criterion. Its cruise speed is faster than any other aircraft in its class, shortening travel time and bringing destinations closer. With enhanced engines, it is faster off the ground and in air than the category leader, predecessor, the Bombardier Learjet 40.

Bypassing traffic and bad weather, it rockets to 51,000 feet. There, it can fly fully fuelled and loaded with category-leading high-speed cruise, whisking seven passengers to their ultimate destination in comfort and style.

As with the Bombardier Learjet 40, the Learjet 40 XR cabin is twenty percent larger than that of any other light business jet. Learjet 40 XR is the tallest in its class, reflecting the aircraft’s premium status. With superior style and functionality throughout, every amenity maximises productivity and passenger comfort.

Capitalising on its 363 cubic feet (10.28 m3) volume, the aircraft’s large cabin offers more seating positions than you would expect in a light jet. Its flat floor and ‘track and swivel’ seating enables passengers to move comfortably throughout the aircraft.

2010 Gulfstream G250

Capacity:8 Passengers
Speed: 459 Knots
Altitude: 45,000 ft
Range: 3,400 Nautical Miles

Gulfstream’s newest aircraft, the G250™ (renamed G280™ on July 2011), boasts of superiority in all areas of the super mid-size business jet market. It encompasses outstanding performance, comfort and advanced technology to bring together this best-in-class aircraft.

The G250 boasts the longest range at fastest cruise speed in the super mid-size business jet category. A new high speed wing and Honeywell HTF7250G engines provide the platform for this superb performance. With excellent field performance, the G250 has the ability to obtain access into some of the most difficult airports.

With the most spacious cabin in its class, the G250 cabin can provide seating for up to ten passengers in two seating areas. The large galley and in-flight access to baggage provides the best accommodations for passengers. The 100 percent fresh air, low cabin altitude, quiet cabin and large windows reduce fatigue and accentuate a comfortable cabin environment.

Beechcraft Premier IA: Business Jet

Capacity: 7 Passengers
Speed : 451 Knots
Altitude : 41,000 ft
Range : 1490 Nautical Miles

Representing balance of speed, performance, reliability and flexibility, the Beechcraft Premier IA vividly demonstrates that travel for business and pleasure in air travel need not be mutually exclusive.

Whenever and wherever you need to travel for that next business opportunity, rest assured, you can travel Premier in elegant style and comfort. In fact, from the exceptionally quiet and spacious cabin – the largest among all comparable light jets – it is easy to forget you are cruising at over 500 miles per hour.

Once aboard, the first question is, “How did Beechcraft manage to create a light jet with a ‘midsize-jet’ interior?” It began with the advanced composite fuselage. It has none of the ribs and stringers required by aluminium airframes. That not only saved a lot of space and weight, it also allowed the creation of an interior that is roomy, quiet and comfortable with features like down-wash lighting, contoured seats that swivel and recline, a private aft lavatory, and the availability of a variety of audio and video entertainment systems.
