Many others take the ultimate step of buying private jets of their choice. You, too, can take this route to ensure there is a private jet at your disposal 24/7/365. By investing in a private jet, you become a part of the elite owners group, elevating your social status. Horizon Air Group and a handful of other private jet companies have notched up service offerings to now provide specialized aviation consultancy services and help when choosing a private jet that best meets your traveling needs. Research on the latest options, as aviation technologies are always getting better. To help, the blog lists six most awaited private jets that will be making their debut pretty soon. Take a look.
1. Cessna Citation Hemisphere
Cessna unveiled the Hemisphere during the NBAA show in Las Vegas last year. According to the company, the jet has a flight range of 4,500 nautical miles, breaking with convention that a typical Cessna can’t cover more than 4,000 nmi. Cessna claims the Hemisphere has the largest cabin in its class, and provides enough room for 12 passengers. The Citation Hemisphere has a top speed of Mach 0.9 and boasts state-of-the art flight control system that replaces manual controls with an electronic interface, thereby, making it easier to control the aircraft. With these advanced features, the Citation Hemisphere demands attention and is sure to be one of the most sought-after jet in its class when it’s finally available for sale.
2. Dassault Falcon 5X
If, like many other ardent Falcon fans, you wished for a cross between aircraft from the Falcon 2000 series and jets with wider cabin space, the Falcon 5X is the aircraft to watch out for. The jet has a flight range of 5,200 nmi and wide fuselage diameter that enhances its cabin volume. Dassault had to delay production of the Falcon 5X, and you’ll have to wait for at least three more years before you can hop on one of the jets for a test ride.
3. Bombardier Global 8000
One of the most awaited ultra-long range business jets, the Global 8000 has a flight range of 7,900 nmi, which means connectivity from Sydney to Los Angeles, Hong Kong to New York and Mumbai to NY, all in a single non-stop flight at a top speed of Mach 0.925. According to the the aircraft manufacturer, the jet has enough room for eight travelers and deliveries will start in 2019.
4. Pilatus PC-24
Buoyed by the commercial success of the PC-12, Pilatus started working on the PC-24 in 2007. The twin engine business jet was unveiled to general public in 2013 and will enter service in 2017. According to Pilatus, the PC-24 is a short takeoff and landing aircraft, with the ability to take-off and land on unpaved runways and grass strips, giving it access to more than 21,000 airports globally. The aircraft features a larger than usual cargo door that provides direct access to the luggage compartment. The PC-24 also features what the company calls an Advanced Cockpit Environment, which uses as many as four LCD displays to provide vital information in real-time to the pilot. The jet’s engines are mounted on the upper portion of the fuselage to avoid any damages from foreign objects when landing or taking off on rough airstrips.
5. Gulfstream G500
Gulfstream intends to replace the G450 with its more fuel efficient and faster cousin, the G500. According to the aircraft manufacturer, the jet will enter service in 2019 and can achieve a maximum speed of Mach 0.925. The G500 has a flight range of 5,000 nmi and can accommodate as many as 19 passengers. Gulfstream G500 includes active sidesticks by BAE Systems that provide better display and instrument panel access to the pilot, which scores high on the safety front.
