Light Jet – Longest Range Comparison

Which private light jet offers the longest range?

Though most light jets aren’t built for long-range travel, they are still one of the most popular choices among both business and vacation travelers. At the top of the list sit the Phenom 300 and the Lear 35. These two light jets will get you the furthest without stopping for fuel.

What else is a private light jet capable of?

When considering which private light jet offers the longest range, there are a few things to be considered. Details like how much space the cabin has, how much cargo the jet can hold, the age of the aircraft and its take-off performance should all be considered when matching an aircraft to the intended mission.

To better inform our clients, we’ve added additional columns to the table below to include these data points.

What is a light jet charter by definition?

A light jet is typically designed for shorter, regional flights while still enjoying all the amenities of an upscale charter experience. These jets are typically configured to seat up to eight passengers. However, we recommend limiting occupancy to just five or six.

Although the space is tighter in these compact jets than bigger models, many light jets come with high-end entertainment systems, business amenities, and an enclosed or curtained lavatory.

Many travelers prefer light jets for both business and personal trips due to its ability to access smaller runways and more remote destinations. Because these compact jets offer many of the same amenities found in larger jet categories as well, light jets are extremely popular for short-range charters.
