Typical Super Light Jet Mission
Super light jets are larger than light jets, suitable for short to mid-range flights. The cabin is more spacious, the baggage compartment is larger and up to nine passengers can fly onboard a super light jet. The Citation XLS is a good example: it seats nine passengers and has a nonstop 1,704-nautical-mile range; the Citation Excel also has a 1,704-nautical-mile range and seats up to eight passengers. Other popular choices are the Learjet 40 and the Learjet 45. The Learjet 40 seats eight passengers and can fly 1,954 nautical miles nonstop; the Learjet 45 can fly 1,824 nautical miles nonstop, seats eight passengers, has an external baggage compartment providing 50 cubic feet of space with an additional 15 cubic feet of storage inside of the cabin.
The Gulfstream 100—also an excellent private jet charter choice—can fly 2,950 nautical miles with a maximum flight ceiling of 45,000 feet, seats seven passengers and has a private lavatory. The G100 can fly from Los Angeles to New York, London to Boston, and easily fly nonstop from Tokyo to Singapore, New York to Seattle, and the G100 has a maximum cruise speed of Mach .84.
