Business Jet Traveler magazine just published its first-ever Book of Lists. We at New Flight Charters would like to pass on a few highlights:
Speedy and efficient, but make sure your pilot is well trained, and often.
The pioneering bizjet and still going strong after decades of reliable service.
Sure, the GE CJ610 engines are noisy and use lots of fuel, but dang does a Lear 25 climb like a homesick angel!
Progenitor of the big-cabin Gulfstreams, the latest being the bigger and ultra-long-range G650.
Does beauty in the form of sleekly shaped aluminum matter? Dassault would say, “absolutement!”
The ideal business hauler, a twin-turboprop cabin with single-engine efficiency and bladder-busting range
The ideal combination of passenger comfort and pilot pleasure.
Quiet, strong, quick – what a light jet should be.
Under new owners, finally becoming the personal jet that launched the very light jet revolution.
Thurber, a senior editor at Aviation International News, is a certified commercial pilot, flight instructor and aircraft mechanic.
