Very Light Jets


2 - 4 pax    
716 - 1,400 nautical miles    
€2,000 - €2,200 per hour

Very light jets (VLJs) are ideal for short to medium range and lightweight trips (under 10,000 pounds), VLJs are an excellent option due to their versatility and efficiency. Optimal for small groups of passengers, VLJs typically accommodate two to four people. Due to their small size, VLJ's can travel quickly in addition to being able to land and take off utilizing smaller airports.

The wide variety of VLJs available encompass diverse performance characteristics and payloads although their maximum takeoff weight is under 10,000 pounds. While most VLJs are designed for small groups of people, some larger VLJs can accommodate more baggage than others and/or might include a semi-private lavatory. All VLJs are powered by jet engines (normally two) and feature pressurized passenger cabins for added comfort, safety and performance. In comparison to turboprop aircraft however, VLJs offer significant time savings by utilizing jet engines, yet offer the same cost savings due to reduced operational costs. VLJs are generally configured in a VIP format to cater to executives and to maximize passenger capacity.

Light Jets


6 - 7 pax    
1,088 - 1,929 nautical miles    
€2,200 - €2,800 per hour

An efficient and economical option for short to medium range flights, light jets offer superior versatility, speed, and range over non-jet aircraft. Additionally, light jets have the added advantage of being able to fly into and out of smaller airports that are inaccessible to major airliners. With cruising speeds of around a 440 mph average and a nonstop range of around 1,500 miles, light jets get you to your destination quickly and efficiently.

For added comfort, performance and safety most light jet aircraft have pressurized passenger cabins and often have a private or semi-private lavatory. Baggage capacity and luggage storage space may be limited and light jets often cannot accommodate skis or large golf bags.

Super Light Jets


7 - 8 pax    
1,741 - 1,933 nautical miles    
€2,800 - €2,900 per hour

If a more spacious option is the key, Super Light jets are a step up from light jets, offering a greater cabin space as well as larger baggage compartments. SLJs are suitable for short to medium range travel, carrying between seven to eight passengers. With an increased range from light jets and a bigger cabin space, SLJs are both efficient and economical. For a small increase in price, like light jets, SLJ are also capable of landing in smaller airports while offering an increase in travel comfort. These jets are a great way to travel, with additional accommodations and an extended range to assure a safe and expeditious trip overall.

Midsize Jets


8 - 9 pax    
1,300 - 3,000 nautical miles    
€2,700 - €3,800 per hour

Midsize jets offer the ultimate balance of efficiency, comfort, performance and economy for medium length flights. Able to fly further and faster than their lighter counterparts, midsize jets take advantage of a 500 mph average cruising speed and a maximum nonstop range of around 2,100 miles. Without sacrificing the ability to fly into and out of smaller airports, midsize jets provide the best of both worlds.

Most midsize jet aircraft have external baggage storage and can accommodate a reasonable amount of baggage. Despite this, baggage capacity and luggage storage space may be limited on certain aircraft such as the Hawker line of jets, as they only have internal storage. This can pose problems for skis or other oversized items. However, unlike light jet aircraft, all midsize jets offer a full private lavatory.

Super Midsize Jets


8 - 10 pax    
2,450 - 4,000 nautical miles    
€3,700 - €5,700 per hour

As an attractive middle ground between midsize jets and large jets, super midsize jets are ideal for those who require a little more carrying capacity, speed, and range, but don't want to go quite as big as large jets. Exceptionally fast, quiet, and efficient, super midsize jets are ideal for those looking for the comfort of a large jet and the versatility of a midsize jet.

Super midsize aircraft such as the Falcon 50 offer a wide variety of route options and amenities to the private jet seeker. Comparable to large jet aircraft, these jets are outfitted with a number of luxurious amenities for passenger comfort and convenience. Typically seating more around 8-10 passengers, super midsize aircraft enjoy a longer range than most midsize aircraft. With average cruising speeds exceeding 500mph, these aircraft are fast, efficient and normally quieter than smaller comparable corporate jets. These aircraft have plenty of room for external baggage, oversized items and more. All have fully enclosed lavatories for convenience and privacy.

Large Jets


10 - 16 pax    
3,600 - 6,000 nautical miles    
€5,000 - €7,200 per hour

Prioritizing luxury and diverse amenity service for long distance flights, large jets are the epitome of comfort and performance. Large jets can naturally travel faster and longer than their smaller counterparts. Boasting average speeds of as high as 530 mph and average ranges of around 4,000 miles, large jets are perfect for those who want the premier option for private jet travel.

Large jets are among the most comfortable executive aircraft available and offer optimum performance and luxurious amenities for long-range flights.

Amenities onboard large jets often include a full private lavatory, external baggage compartments, stereo DVD, satellite phone, fax, and a full galley. In addition flight attendants can enhance your in-flight experience, with added comfort and safety and can also assist with gourmet catering and entertainment.

Turboprop Aircraft


6 - 8 pax    
739 - 1,938 nautical miles    
€1,200 - €1,800 per hour

Above and beyond piston aircraft in terms of average range, speed, and comfort, turboprop aircraft still maintain the cost-efficiency of their piston counterparts. Utilizing turbine propeller engines, turboprops can maintain average speeds of up to 300 mph and have a non-stop range of around 1,000 miles. Turboprops are most popular for short to medium distance flights and have the added advantage of being able to take off and land using virtually any airport.

For added comfort, performance and safety most turboprop aircraft have pressurized passenger cabins and often have a semi-private lavatory. Baggage capacity and luggage storage space is limited.

Helicopters


3 - 8 pax    
250 - 660 nautical miles    
€1,521 - €2,275 per hour

Particularly useful for short to medium distance flights, helicopters come in a wide variety of available models. Diverse and versatile with the flexibility of numerous configurations, helicopters specialize in VIP format transport for executives traveling city to city. They can also serve other purposes such as cargo missions, medical evacuation flights, and versatile passenger transport.

Helicopters are designed for smaller groups of people (anywhere from 3-15). There are a wide variety of helicopters and rotorcraft available in a variety of different configurations. While most helicopters are designed for small groups of people, some larger helicopters can accommodate more baggage and passengers than others. Due to their high operation costs, helicopters are generally not used for long-range flights but rather for inner city flights or short routes. Most rotorcraft are generally configured in a VIP format to cater to executives and to maximize passenger capacity yet they can also be configured for medical and evac flights, passenger configurations and cargo operations.

Turboprop Airliners


29 - 74 pax    
348 - 2,869 nautical miles    
€2,800 - €16,500 per hour

Turboprop airliners deliver large passenger capacity supplemented by turboprop efficiency. Ideal for short to medium distance trips, turboprops are generally more economical than jet airliners and have the added advantage of being able to land on shorter runways. This versatility combined with high standards of comfort and safety make turboprop airliners excellent mid-range flight options.

For maximum efficiency, turboprop airliners are best flown at 725 km/h or less due to the velocity of the propeller. This makes turboprops perfectly suited to short haul flights, and many aviation enthusiasts insist on turboprops for short distance flights for the unmistakable authenticity of the experience. Typically turboprop interiors are quite intimate, making it the perfect choice for passengers who want to converse with one another throughout the flight – many short haul business flights are conducted on turboprop airliners.

Turboprop airliners’ power and consistency have helped them become a mainstay in private aviation, proving particularly useful when a short takeoff and landing (STOL) is required, particularly in remote areas. Not all turboprop airliners are small, however, with the Airbus A400M carrying up to 166 passengers when required, showing just how versatile turboprop airliners are.

Regional Airliners


37 - 50 pax    
1,006 - 2,000 nautical miles    
€6,000 - €7,000 per hour

Regional airliners have an average range of about 1700 miles and a cruise speed of about 400 Knots, making them perfect for medium range flights. These aircraft are capable of accommodating larger groups of passengers, while also offering comfort and safety. Uniquely, regional airliners are usually contracted by larger carriers to travel between smaller cities or from larger cities to smaller ones nearby. This adds convenience to the trips of many travelers in search of direct flights.

Regional Airliners – also known as feederliners – are aircraft which can seat up to 100 passengers over short haul flights, including city-to-city trips covering smaller airports. Dating back to the early years of aviation, regional airliners played a pivotal role in the transition from a time when all aircraft were short haul into the modern long haul era. Early models such as the BAE 146 were pivotal in helping cause the regional airliner boom which saw them become one of the most popular methods of short haul flight.

Fairly narrow cabins ensure that regional airliners remain one of the most efficient aircraft around, wasting little space in seating areas yet with ample room in the cargo hold. Their introduction came at a time when turboprops were viewed as too noisy, and so from the very beginning regional airliners have been designed to be as tranquil as possible, ensuring a smooth flight for those who are easily disturbed by outside noise.
