Midsize Jet Advantages
Extended Range, Larger Cabin Space and Increased Luggage Capacity
Midsize Jets offer added comfort and ample room for storage, paired with the ability to traverse the entire United States, sometimes with no fuel stops. For a similar price to a Light Jet, you receive extended range and added comforts of a full lavatory, roomier seats, and more room for storage. Family vacations or overnight business trips can easily be accommodated in this aircraft cabin size.
On average, passengers can expect a cabin height of 5’8” with a baggage space of roughly 60 cubic feet, enough for one medium roller bag and one personal item per passenger. Although the cabin size allows room to stretch in a midsize private jet, you still must plan accordingly if you plan to travel with more than five or six passengers.
Fly in Comfort for Longer Missions
Midsize jets feature elegant club-style side-by-side seating, with swivel, recline and track seating, to accommodate up to eight passengers. The additional space and headroom leave plenty of room for productivity or for relaxation. With an enclosed lavatory (complete with vanity) and potential for a full galley in most midsize aircraft, you can expect to ride in comfort. Your Personal Flight Concierge will stock your favorite snacks and beverages in preparation for your flight.
Midsize Jets work well for those that want a little more legroom and a little more room for baggage. You could easily fit six passengers and six sets of golf clubs on a Midsize Jet, plus a small carry-on. Also, if you’re a taller or a larger person, you’re going to be much more comfortable sitting or standing in a Midsize Jet.Christof Pignet
Ideal Trip Profile
For those looking to avoid fuel stops while paying a similar price to a light jet, a midsize jet makes a convincing substitute. While some passengers don’t mind a 20-minute delay to stretch their legs, others prefer nonstop flight, which midsize jets can offer on most trips throughout the United States. Depending on the payload and passenger count, trips from coast- to- coast can often be accomplished without a fuel stop. However, keep in mind that the more payload aboard the plane, the less capacity there is for fuel. When you bring more people and luggage aboard an aircraft, you’re doing so at the expense of fuel efficiency and range of the aircraft. So, if avoiding fuel stops is a concern, then you may ultimately want to go to a larger size private jet or cut back on passengers or luggage in a midsize jet.
These jets are also excellent business aircraft because you have the added range and extra comfort to keep your team productive while in the air. Passengers looking to carry skis, snowboards, golf clubs, etc. will find a midsize private jet more suitable for their purposes. Also, a lot of families prefer this cabin size for ski trips or missions where more luggage or equipment would be required.
