Take Your Next Trip in a Falcon 50

Falcon 50 The Falcon 50 is often used as a cost effective alternative to a heavy jet. This jet features a galley with plenty of space for meal service, a fully enclosed lavatory, enough baggage space to accommodate 8 full-size suitcases or sets of golf clubs, and often comes equipped with a cabin attendant and Wi-Fi. The cabin is very comfortable with leather chairs, fold-out tables, and couch seating. The quiet cabin makes the Falcon 50 ideal for business meetings or just relaxing.

The Dassault Falcon 50 is a super midsize jet designed to meet the demand and need for an aircraft that could travel non-stop, coast to coast. The Falcon 50 is the Falcon family’s first transoceanic aircraft based on the earlier design of the Falcon 20. The Falcon 50 typically seats 9 and can travel 3,500 nautical miles at average speeds up to 496 mph. It also offers impressive runway performance,
requiring only a short takeoff distance.

The Falcon 50 was produced after a complete redesign of the wings of the Falcon 20 and contains three jet engines instead of the two jet engines on board the Falcon 20. This made the Falcon 50 the world’s first civilian jet with supercritical wings to minimize drag and noise pollution, a breakthrough technology for the time.Falcon 50The Falcon 50 EX, an upgraded version of the Falcon 50, was later introduced and designed to fly a bit higher and faster than the
original Falcon 50, while also reducing fuel consumption by about 7%.To request a Falcon 50 for your next trip, please contact us. We would be happy to provide you with a flight quote.

If the Need is Speed, Look to Citation X

Citation X+
Photos courtesy of Cessna

Loyal Citation customers sought increased baggage capacity, longer range and more speed at a time when Lear jets were the
champions of speed and range but were limited on cabin size and baggage area. Cessna needed to develop something bold for their loyal following.

Citation X+ Interior

Using the same fuselage diameter as their popular Citation VII (5’6″ x 5’8″) the Cessna design team developed 35% more baggage
capacity and stretched the cabin length by 25%. Engineers doubled the thrust of the engines, increased their intake capacity and
adjusted the sweep of the wing. The result was a stunning increase in cruising speed from 506 mph to 588 mph with top speed
capability of 699 mph, creating not only a faster jet, but also a
revolutionary new model. The six-year project culminated in the birth of the “fastest civilian aircraft in the world”, the Citation X
(roman numeral ten).

Citation X+

The increased speed and 3,000-mile range make the Citation X very popular for coast-to-coast trips and for customers who are looking to take advantage of the possible time-saving. The fastest we have ever tracked one of our customers in a Citation X was 627 mph on a trip from SNA-TEB. This resulted in a one-hour time-saving over a heavy or midsize jet.

The Citation X is classified as a super midsize jet.

Citation X+

If you have the need for speed we have your answer. FlyPrivate
customers have on-demand access to the entire national and
international charter fleet of the Citation X. They are popular
aircraft and book up as swiftly as they fly.

Meet the Citation Sovereign

Citation Sovereign Exterior

The Cessna Citation Sovereign was first unveiled in 1998 at the
annual NBAA Convention, but it wasn’t until 2002 that the first
Sovereign took flight. Created to bridge the gap between the
Citation Excel/XLS and the Citation X, the Sovereign falls in the
Super Midsize Jet class and offers many impressive features.

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 135 cubic feet of baggage space.

 

Citation Sovereign Interior

The Citation Sovereign has 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 514 mph.  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.

The Gulfstream 280: A Smart Charter Choice

Gulfstream G280 Interior

In 2009, Gulfstream Aerospace’s G280 took its first flight, and since has become a very popular jet in the super midsize category. The G280 was designed with the input of many existing Gulfstream
customers on their Customer Advisory Board. Some notable
enhancements include: a new wing, tail, engine and an updated
interior. The jet also features the Gulfstream PlaneView 280 cockpit developed from the Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line Fusion avionics suite. According to Gulfstream, “A newly designed long, sleek wing and high-thrust engines increase range and speed, yet fuel economy is so well maximized the G280 has earned best-in-class fuel efficiency.”

The Gulfstream 280 quickly became one of the most popular jets in the super midsize class because it offers unmatched performance and handling capabilities, as well as a quiet and exceptionally
comfortable cabin. The G280 can fly non-stop for up to 8 hours,
surpassing all other midsize and super midsize business jets, and has the ability to take off and land from shorter airfields. With
remarkable fuel efficiency, the G280 is said to consume 12% less fuel than comparable jets.

The cabin of the G280 is also impressive. Some notable features
include:  a 6’3″ cabin height, 935 cubic feet of cabin space, seating for up to 10 passengers with some models offering beds for up to 5 passengers, 19 windows for maximum natural light, 100% fresh air circulation and a cabin management system that allows passengers to adjust the lighting, temperature, high-definition monitors and other entertainment features from an on-board iPod Touch. The G280 comes with a galley equipped with all the essentials for meal and beverage service, as well as an aft lavatory with floor-to-ceiling closets, a vacuum toilet, vanity, and mirror.

inside the aircraft.

exceed private fliers’ expectations.

Understanding Jet Classes and What Each Offers

Citation Hemisphere

If you are looking for the right jet aircraft for your next trip, whether for business or pleasure, it is important to understand what class of jet will best suit your needs. Jet industry professionals group jet
aircraft into 6 classes consisting of: Heavy Jets, Super Midsize Jets, Midsize Jets, Light Jets, Very Light Jets, and Turboprops. Let’s
discuss the benefits of each class of jet to help you make the most
informed decision.

Global 5000

Heavy Jets

Heavy jets are appropriate when your party numbers fourteen (14) or fewer. Heavy Jets have the most luxurious onboard
accommodations, always including a galley and enclosed lavatory. These jets are generally the most comfortable for long-range trips and can include internet access, audio and video players, satellite phones and a range of other amenities. Additionally, the crew will usually include a cabin attendant.

Gulfstream 280

Super Midsize Jets

Super Midsize jets are appropriate when you seek more range than a standard midsize but may not have the need for a heavy jet. Super Midsize jets will typically avoid a fuel stop on flights less than 2,500. Often Super Midsize jets are the fastest and most fuel efficient of the jet classes. These jets also include a wide variety of amenities similar to that of the heavy jets.

Hawker 800XP

Midsize Jets

Midsize jets are appropriate for parties of seven (7) or fewer and will typically avoid a fuel stop on flights less than 2,500 miles. The
Midsize jets are the most versatile in that they offer better fuel economy than the larger jet classes, but still offer many of the same amenities. Midsize jets are equipped with an enclosed lavatory.

Phenom 300

Light Jets

Light jets are appropriate for parties of five (5) or fewer and will
typically avoid a fuel stop on flights less than 1,500 miles. Light jets are economical, have a quiet engine, and are a great option for short to mid-range flights. Because of their smaller size, light jets can land at smaller FBOs and airports to help get you closer to your
destination and often fly at higher altitudes. Luggage capacity is
limited.

Citation Mustang

Very Light Jets

Very Light Jets (VLJs) are small light aircraft that typically hold a small group of 4 or 5 passengers comfortably. The very light jets are a fairly new category of aircraft, and thus are equipped with the very latest in jet engine technology which delivers the speed, quality, and fuel efficiency that allow for a more cost effective means of private jet travel.

  • Average Range: 1,000-1,500 miles
  • Average Cruising Speed: 400 mph
  • Passenger Count: 4-6 seats
  • Average Baggage Capacity: 47 cubic feet
  • FlyPrivate Round Trip Hourly Rates: $1,500-$2,000
  • FlyPrivate One Way Trip Hourly Rates: Quoted per trip
  • Examples of Popular Very Light Jets: Phenom 100,
    Citation Mustang and the Eclipse 550

King Air 300

Turboprops

Turboprops are a great solution for trips less than 500 miles and for trips into airports with shorter runways. Seating varies by aircraft model from 4-8 passengers. Turboprops provide better performance on shorter runways, many models have larger cabins than Light jets. Some Turboprops have enclosed lavatories while others do not have any lavatory facilities.

Get Going in a Gulfstream G150

Gulfstream 150

The Gulfstream G150 is a high speed super midsize jet with a
“dispatch-reliability rating higher than 99.8 percent,” according to Gulfstream. Versatility is a mainstay of the Gulfstream G150. This aircraft offers ample cabin space, a cockpit equipped with advanced flight deck technology, and is able to fly coast to coast in just 6 hours.

The G150 can travel non-stop over 3,400 statute miles at a cruise speed of 500 mph. With a forward galley, taller side walls that
provide generous head room, and a fully enclosed lavatory, the G150 specializes in passenger comforts. There is also 80 cubic feet of baggage space allowing passengers to bring their golf bags while still leaving room for additional luggage. “Closets at the front and the rear of the plane offer enough storage for anything one might need to access in-flight.”

Gulfstream 150 Interior

The Gulfstream G150 sets the standard for both versatility and
efficiency. The G150 can seat up to 8 people at max capacity in a number of different configurations, some with sleeping
arrangements. The cabin is ideal for conducting business on the go with advanced soundproofing technologies that cuts outside noise significantly. To combat fatigue and contribute to passenger
comfort, fresh air is circulated around the cabin every two minutes. The 11 oval windows allow for more natural light in the cabin giving it a more spacious feel and making for a more enjoyable ride.Gulfstream 150

The interior of the Gulfstream G150 is 465 cubic feet, with a cabin height of 5′ 9″, width of 5′ 9″ and length of 17′ 8″. Many G150s come standard with other cabin technologies including: a
high-definition entertainment center and televisions, satellite phone, CD/DVD player, Wi-Fi network, electrical outlets, and tables to conduct work or enjoy a meal.

The G150 is also a pilot-friendly aircraft with impressive cockpit
capabilities. According to Gulfstream, “Flight information, weather conditions, electronic charts and options for advanced navigation create one of the most technologically equipped super midsize
business aircraft ever to take flight. Four liquid crystal displays
provide pilots crisp graphics and flight data. The avionics system also features an Engine-Indication and Crew-Alerting System, which monitors key engine performance and alerts pilots when a
component is operating outside ideal parameters. The flight
management system also integrates a Global Positioning System and a diagnostic maintenance computer.”
