Discover the Jet Linx Difference.

Light Private Jets

Light cabin jets are the most requested type of aircraft in Jet Linx’s fleet.  Small private jets provide fast and comfortable transport for as many as seven passengers looking to travel to regional destinations. With the flexibility to land at nearly any airport, these aircraft are often the choice for family vacations, and make ideal business jets as the flight range, cost, and availability.

Typical Light Jet Performance

  • Up to 7 passengers
  • Up to 3.5 Hours of Endurance
  • Small beverage center and lavatory
  • Access to Small Airports & Runways
  • Cruising speed averages 400-450 mph

Light Jet Advantages

Access Remote Destinations


The capability to access remote airports also makes smaller private jets attractive. If you needed to land in a rural area with a small runway – for business or personal travel – a small private jet may be your only option aside from a long ride in a vehicle. Island or mountain destinations would also be well within reach as small private jets can take off and land on more compact runways.

Capable, Cost-effective Aircraft for Business


What a small business jet may lack in spaciousness, they make up for in cost effectiveness. A small jet is ideal for business, and they are the most cost-efficient way to transport multiple executives around the country. Small business jets have become the top choice for many companies due to the cost and efficiency offered. Business teams typically travel light, so there’s no need for large luggage capacity.

A Light Jet is ideal for business. Most often, business trips do not require much storage for baggage, so this must be considered for trips where more than themselves and a personal item is anticipated.

Ideal Trip Profile

While not suitable for transcontinental travel, a small private jet would be able to fly you to and from nearly any Jet Linx Private Terminal in the country – and with access to over 5,000 airports nationwide, nearly endless city pairs in between. Nonstop trips from New York to Atlanta, Dallas to Minneapolis, and Omaha to Scottsdale are well within range. While not able to go for a long-range flight, our fleet of small private jets can most often get you where you need to be without the need for a fuel stop.

Light Jet Models in the Jet Linx fleet each offer slightly different features and benefits. Some provide longer range, some provide slightly larger cabins, and some emphasize technological features. While they can carry up to seven passengers, typically our light private jets are perfect for travelers that require four passengers and a maximum range of two to three hours. This gives every passenger adequate luggage space and decreases the chances of a fuel stop. At maximum capacity, a Light Jet will allow for one small roller bag and one personal item per passenger.
