Which is the fastest heavy-size private jet in the world?

On average, most heavy jets travel between 5 and 600 miles per hour. However, the jet that soars circles around the rest is the Gulfsteam G650. This jet has reached speeds over Mach .9, which is just shy of breaking the sound barrier and going supersonic.

What else is a heavy jet capable of?

While heavy jets are extremely capable, it’s important to consider the jet as a whole before making a booking decision. This like storage capacity, short field takeoff performance, aircraft age and years in service, and range can affect the appropriateness of the aircraft for your mission.

To help our clients make informed buying decisions, we’ve compiled the table below to highlight these features and more.

What is a heavy jet charter by definition?

Also referred to as ‘bizliners,’ heavy jets are ideal for business executives and professionals. With all the conveniences of a modern-day office, these jets can act as a flying boardroom. They’re capable of keeping up to 16 passengers connected and productive while in flight.

One of the biggest perks to chartering a heavy jet is the cabin space. Compared to smaller models, heavy jets offer an extensive amount of cabin space. This allows passengers to stand up and move about freely, which is important during long trips. The cabin configurations on heavy jets are also exceptional. With full galleys, lounge spaces, work areas, and separate bedrooms, passengers are able to travel in complete comfort. Most heavy jets even boast showers in the lavatories.

Heavy jets are also ideal for long-range travel. In fact, they were designed for journeys up to 6,000 miles or eight hours of non-stop travel. Pair the range capability with their well appointed cabins and it’s easy to see why heavy jets are the perfect choice for travelers who demand the best of comfort and convenience.

Soar Higher with Stratos Jet Charters, Inc.

At Statos, we’re proud to deliver exceptional service every time we book a charter. To do this, though, we do things a little differently than our competitors.

It all begins with our operational framework. As soon as a call comes in from a client calls until the completion of the trip, we strive to provide unrivalled customer service. While the competition focuses on making as many sales as possible, we provide our clients with an experience that extends beyond just the flight.

To ensure we live up to this promise, we created a second department – Trip Support. This team handles all of the details once an air charter agent has secured the appropriate jet for the journey. From booking lodging accommodations to setting up ground transportation to arranging inflight catering, Trip Support can do it all.

At Stratos, we also seek to expand the margin of safety with each charter flight we book. Every time a client books a private jet rental, there is a slight element of risk involved. We mitigate that risk by creating a culture of air charter safety throughout our entire network. This ensures our client’s air charter is one of the safest out there.
