- The use of light jets in business aviation
- Details of the Citation CJ3 and the Learjet 40
Light jets are the perfect choice for a family or business trip to destinations only a few hours away. With more room than a turboprop, but at a price that will be appealing, light jets are the best choice for fast transport of up to seven passengers. Light jets are perfect for runways that are smaller, keeping island or mountain destinations a possibility to land at. The most popular light jets are the LearJet aircrafts and the Citation Aircrafts.
The Learjet 40 is produced by Bombardier Aerospace and is derived from the Learjet 45, but wit a shorter fuselage and is powered by two Honeywell TFE731 engines. The Learjet 40 is an upgrade of the discontinued Learjet 31a with performance and comfort improvements. The Lear 40 holds 7 passengers and has a max takeoff weight of 20,350 lbs. The Citation fleet offers the Citation Encore, Citation Bravo, Citation CJ2, Citation CJ3 as well as other aircrafts. The Citation CJ3 delivers superior reliability without sacrificing quality and comfort. The range, speed and operating economics are a perfect combination that supply the passengers with the best ability in high and hot airports. The CJ3 features go above and beyond the rest with seating for up to nine passengers and 1,000 pounds of baggage.
