In 2004, Raytheon (the maker of the midsize Hawker series)
renamed their popular light jet the Beechjet 400A, the Hawker 400XP. The move was designed to create brand identity among the light and midsize jets that Raytheon produced.
In addition to the name, Raytheon also imported cabin comforts of the midsize Hawker including: additional shoulder and head room, a refined interior design, as well as a flat floor, making it the most
spacious cabin in its class. The baggage space, airspeed and range of the Hawker 400XP rate at the top of the light jet fleet.
The Hawker 400XP is ideal for short trips and is most impressive in the air. With cruise speeds of over 400 knots and fuel-efficient Pratt & Whitney JT15D-5 turbofan engines, pilots agree that the Hawker 400XP is a reliable, efficient and well-designed aircraft.
Primarily available to whole and fractional owners or members of jet membership programs, FlyPrivate’s customers have been able to
enjoy the Hawker 400XP “on-demand” since 2008.

AGS Director of Aviation Services: “We start the planning process as
early as August. We review items from the previous year’s event and
continually make tweaks to the operations to ensure that the proper staffing levels and supplies are sufficient. We have implemented an aircraft parking reservation system which will help maximize ramp space utilization.”
AIK Customer Service Supervisor: “To prepare for the influx of traffic
during The Masters tournament, Aiken Aviation takes many steps to
ensure a convenient and pleasurable experience for each individual. Aiken Aviation brings in additional fuel trucks for speedy fueling,
additional transportation to transport passengers and pilots to and from their aircraft if needed, and the line and customer service hours are
extended to accommodate those arriving or departing outside of our
normal operating hours.”
FlyPrivate®: “Do you plan to ramp up staff for the event? If so,
approximately by how much?”
AGS: “Yes, we bring in additional fuelers and customer service support. We normally operate with 15 employees but that number increases to 65 during Master’s week.”
AIK: “Aiken Aviation is doubling its staff for the event in order to swiftly and professionally accommodates each aircraft.”
FlyPrivate®: “On average, how many flights in and out of AGS and AIK do you expect during these dates?”
AGS: “Augusta Regional Airport typically has about 2000 operations
during the week and we’re expecting a slight improvement for this year.”
AIK: “Aiken Aviation has a little over 400 arrivals during the week of The Masters. This year we are looking forward to another great week of flights.”
FlyPrivate®: “Which dates are the most popular for flights?
(i.e. What are the busiest days?)”
AGS: “Thursday is probably the busiest day because it’s the first official day for tournament play followed by the last day, Sunday evening. It’s hustle and bustle to ensure that every flight is ready for departure. It’s an amazing site to see airplanes departing one right after another.”
AIK: “The latter part of the week is the most popular for flights, when the practice rounds are over and the rounds take place on that Thursday,
Friday, Saturday and Sunday.”
FlyPrivate®: “Do you have any preferred vendors you would
AGS: “I couldn’t pick just one, because they all do a nice job, but what I can say is that the southern hospitality will definitely be in full effect!”
AIK: “Aiken Aviation recommends Enterprise Rent-A-Car service as they will be on site that week for all your needs. There are many wonderful
hotels in the area such as the Town Place Suites and the Hilton Garden Inn, just to name a few. Downtown Aiken offers beautiful scenery with an array of unique and delicious eateries from coffee shops, diners and delis to three course gourmet restaurants.”
FlyPrivate®: “Is there anything else you would like our readers to know about AGS and AIK that may be helpful when planning their trip?”
AGS: “Plan carefully and super early with respect to lodging, and
transportation. Most importantly enjoy your golf experience, most people never get the opportunity.”
AIK: “It is a pleasant surprise at how easy and convenient it is to fly in and out of Aiken, plus we are an easy, non-congested drive (about 27 minutes) on Interstate 20 to get to the Augusta National Golf Course. Our prompt and personalized attention along with our Southern hospitality is always a delight. We are well-known for our superior customer service and we will strive to make all trips to Aiken, SC a memorable one.”
The Bombardier Learjet 45 was first introduced at the US National Business Aircraft Association’s annual convention in 1992, and the first consumer aircraft was delivered in 1998. The Learjet 45 was designed to replace the Learjet 35 and offers the classic Learjet
layout with enhanced and improved design features. In 2004, the Learjet 45 evolved into the Learjet 45XR which offers an upgraded engine and improved climbing performance.
The Learjet 45, and newer Learjet 45XR, are categorized within the light jet class, but offer many of the features and benefits found in midsize jets. When looking at performance, the Learjet 45 excels in both high and low speed handling, runway performance and fuel
efficiency. On the interior, the Learjet 45 was designed to offer the most passenger space possible for a light jet.
The Learjet 45’s cabin can accommodate 8 passengers and a flightcrew of two. The additional legroom, galley storage, full width aft restroom, and wider than average seats offer passengers a
comfortable and practical experience. This jet also offers work
tables that fold down from the walls and a quiet, temperature
controlled cabin, ideal for working from the air. The Learjet 45 has an external baggage compartment that provides 50 cubic feet of baggage space and another 15 cubic feet of internal storage. The Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics suite comes standard on the
Learjet 45XR and includes a 3-D approach navigation system.
When comparing the cruise performance, the Learjet 45 is top in its class. It can cruise at speeds of 465 mph and is able to fly 1,824
nautical miles nonstop. This jet also offers the most advanced anti-ice system of any light or midsize jet, can complete a 1,000
nautical mile trip in just over 2 hours, and the 904-gallon fuel system can be filled rapidly in about 10 minutes, offering very quick
turnaround. The Learjet 45 really shines at cruise altitude and offers exceptional handling capabilities, as well as fuel economy. The
Learjet 45 and Learjet 45XR are great options for anyone looking for a cost-effective light jet that offers superior performance.

The Dassault Falcon 900 is a heavy jet designed as a larger,
enhanced version of the Falcon 50 super midsize jet. The Falcon 900 received FAA certification in 1986, and while it does share a similar configuration to the Falcon 50, it has a larger range, can seat more passengers and has a longer and wider fuselage. The longer fuselage allows the interior to be more spacious and comfortable, while also providing passengers a bit of separation from the crew.
The Falcon 900s‘ design incorporates composite materials wherever possible, drastically reducing the weight of the aircraft. The flight range is impressive, able to travel 4,000 nautical miles because of the innovative three-engine configuration. The third engine is ideal for international flights and also offers flight planning and safety benefits. The Falcon 900 can seat up to 12 passengers and travels at average speeds up to 535 mph. The Falcon 900 jets share virtually the same wing design as the Falcon 50.
In 1994, Dassault introduced the Falcon 900EX, a longer range
version of the Falcon 900with increased fuel capacity. The Falcon 900EX features a Honeywell Primus 2000 avionics package, engine upgrades that provide the aircraft with additional thrust, and a Head-Up Display for the pilot.
The Falcon 900s offer a spacious cabin with some seats that can be reclined into a full-length bed perfect for a mid-flight nap. All of the additional seats are also fully adjustable, able to swivel and recline. This jet also has a private lavatory, as well as an isolated galley and cockpit. The Falcon 900 offers 127 cubic feet of internal baggage space that can be accessed during your flight.
Few other jets in it’s class can compete with the Falcon 900 in terms of passenger comfort, range and performance.

The Citation Sovereign was designed to offer exceptional overall performance, while also providing unrivaled comfort and amenities for passengers. The Sovereign’s spacious interior is over 24 feet long and offers many amenities typical of a Heavy Jet, such as a full size refreshment center, several entertainment options and a full size lavatory. It can seat up to 8 passengers comfortably and the cabin height is tall enough at 5′ 8″ that most people can stand up. The
baggage space in the Citation Sovereign is unmatched compared to other Super Midsize Jets with 132 cubic feet of baggage space.
The Citation Sovereignhas a truly impressive range with its coast-to-coast capabilities. The long range makes the Sovereign a
customer favorite because it compares to a Heavy Jet, but is more economical as far as fuel economy. It performs exceptionally well at high elevations and is very capable of take-off and landing from shorter runways.
Citation Sovereigns are also a favorite of pilots because of it’s many automatic features and easy handling. With an improved wing
design that drastically improves airflow and lift capabilities, the
Sovereign is able to cruise at speeds of .75 Mach. It is equipped with Pratt & Whitney Canada PW306C turbofan engines that are flat-rates to minimize noise pollution, and provide 5,600 lbs of thrust during takeoff. From the landing gear to the brake system and unique variable gearing mechanism that adjusts the jet’s flaps to optimal angles during flight, the Citation Sovereign is hard to beat in overall performance, comfort, versatility, and range.
