Which is the most spacious mid-size private jet cabin?

At 705 cubic feet, the Legacy 450 offers the most cabin volume in the midsize aircraft class. The spacious cabin is also 6.0 feet tall and 6.1 feet wide. This means passengers can enjoy plenty of space to stand up and stretch while in flight.  

What else is a private midsize jet capable of?

If you’ve pre-selected a midsize jet to charter based on its speed, you may want to reconsider. While it’s important that a jet matches a travelers preference, it’s also important to consider everything else the jet is capable of providing.

Things like baggage capacity, take-off and landing performance, years of service, and range are all important factors when selecting the appropriate aircraft for the mission. To better inform our clients of each midsize jet’s capabilities and performance, we’ve created the table below.

What is a midsize jet charter by definition?

Midsize jets are ideal for travelers looking for the convenience and agility of a light jet and the comforts only heavy jets can provide. All midsize jets feature an enclosed lavatory, ample head and legroom, plenty of storage space, and most contain small galleys capable of providing refreshments and light meals. They’re also best suited to groups of less than eight passengers.

In comparison to smaller models, a midsize jet is a huge upgrade in terms of range. The average midsize jet is capable of flying 2,800 miles or five hours non-stop. This means these aircraft are great for travel within the continental US. For some of the top performers, however, a transcontinental trip isn’t unheard of.

Midsize jets are great for passengers traveling for business and pleasure. Most cabins feature comfortable seating configurations, complete with swivel or berthable chairs. This gives passengers the freedom to relax or sleep while in flight. Many cabins also feature high-end communication and entertainment systems.
