Large Cabin Heavy Jets

 

Challenger 850CS private jet

Bombardier Challenger 850CS

The Challenger 850 CS derives from Canadair’s Regional Jet series. The regional jet featured greater cabin space and wingspan as well as a sturdier frame. Rebranded in 2003, the airliner became the Bombardier Challenger 850. As a result, the 850 fuses the capabilities of a larger aircraft with the comfort and flexibility of an executive jet.

Challenger 870 CS

Bombardier Challenger 870 CS

The Challenger 870 CS derives from Canadair’s Regional Jet series, having all of the space and performance capabilities of an airliner at the cost of a turboprop. Rebranded in 2003, the airliner became the Bombardier Challenger 850 CS and 870 CS. As an “extended” version of the 850, the 870 offers more interior space, a redesigned wing and improved landing gear just    to name a few.

Challenger 890 CS

Bombardier Challenger 890 CS

The Challenger 890 CS Corporate Shuttle derives from Canadair’s Regional Jet series, having all of the space and performance capabilities of an airliner at the cost of a turboprop.  The largest of the Challenger series, the 890 CS offers everything its predecessor, the 870, does with a few additions: extended length and greater thrust.  All of the Challenger Corporate Shuttles were designed to transport high volumes of passengers in a cost effective manner.

Global 5000

Bombardier Global 5000

At the time of the Global 5000’s release, Bombardier called the Global 5000 “the world’s fastest” ultra-long range private jet.  It is designed to be slightly smaller and faster than the Global Express, for those that value reliability and speed, without using the extensive range capabilities of the Express.  It can fly eight passengers and three crew members 4,800 nautical miles nonstop at a speed of .85 Mach.  It is impressive in its speed, cabin size, and reliability.

Global Express private jet

Bombardier Global Express

The Global Express was the pioneer of ultra-long-range private jets.  At the time of its release, no other private jet had a cabin nearly as large, nor could any jet make such long-range direct flights like New York to Tokyo or Paris to Singapore.  The Global Express offers everything an airliner does – range, comfort, and speed –- without the hassle.

Global Express XRS

Bombardier Global Express XRS

Bombardier improved its already successful Global Express when it introduced the upgraded XRS in 2003. The Global Express XRS bears all of the qualities of its ultra long-range older sibling, but with greater range and a modified design. With significant improvements, it’s no surprise that the XRS replaced the original Express in 2005.

Gulfstream G350

Gulfstream G-350

The Gulfstream 350 is the next in line of business jet after the successful 300. However, the 350 is more similar in interior features, aerodynamic design and advanced cockpit to its superior counterpart, the Gulfstream 450. The only difference between the jets is range: the 350’s range is 3,797 nautical miles while the 450’s is 4,349 nm.

Gulfstream G450

Gulfstream G-450

The Gulfstream 400 has been a central figure in the large-cabin private jet lineup since its introduction to the market, and the Gulfstream 450 lives up to its standards.  It can fly eight passengers and three crew members from Tokyo to Seattle at a speed of .80 Mach.  Everything from its engines to its flight control systems are high-performing and reliable.

Gulfstream G500

Gulfstream G-500

Also known as the famous GV, the Gulfstream 500 is that last of a long lineage of business jets, starting with the Gulfstream I. Only the fuselage’s cross-section remains the same, as the GV is a result of many revisions and redesigns to fill the gap for a larger, intercontinental range executive aircraft. A longer fuselage, modified wing and new engines are the most noteworthy changes. The GV was certified in 1996 and redesignated the G500 in 2003.

Gulfstream G550

Gulfstream G-550

Gulfstream is one of the most successful and well-recognized private jet manufacturers and the leader in large-cabin jets. Their aircraft has received exceptional reviews for many years. The Gulfstream G550, an ultra-long range, intercontinental jet, is the vastly improved iteration of Gulfstream’s well-known GV. It can fly faster, farther, simpler and with more room than its counterpart. Gulfstream created the G550 to combat tough competition in the heavy-iron category in the 1990’s.

Gulfstream GIV

Gulfstream G-IV

As the fourth installation in the Gulfstream family line, the GIV offers new advancements that the former aircraft lacked. One of the most significant improvements is the change of engines from the Rolls-Royce Spey to the Rolls-Royce Tay Mk 611-8, used in later jets including the G300 and 400. The successful intercontinental-range business jet has been a prototype for later Gulfstream models.

As the fourth installation in the Gulfstream family line, the GIV offers new advancements that the former aircraft lacked. One of the most significant improvements is the change of engines from the Rolls-Royce Spey to the Rolls-Royce Tay Mk 611-8, used in later jets including the G300 and 400. The successful intercontinental-range business jet has been a prototype for later Gulfstream models. While the GIV’s maximum takeoff weight has increased from predecessors.

Gulfstream V

Gulfstream G-V

The Gulfstream 500 (or Gulfstream V) was the first contender in the ultra-long-range private jet category.  It is capable of flying anywhere in the world: nonstop flights from Denver to Beijing or from New Zealand to San Francisco.  It is extremely reliable and high-performing.  The ultra-long-range private jet class is a very exclusive and competitive one in which the    Gulfstream V competes well.

Falcon 7X

Dassault Falcon 7X

When an aircraft manufacturer introduces a new model, it is most likely an improved version of the predecessor.  There is no better example than the Dassault Falcon 7X; it flies higher, farther and faster than any of its predecessors.  Delivered in 2007, the Falcon 7X outperforms similar aircraft in its class, due in large part to a new engine and complete redesign.
