1. Gulfstream G500
The $43.5 million G500 represents a significant upgrade on its predecessor, the G450. It will fly 30 knots faster and 18 per cent further on the same fuel burn. Fly faster and further while saving fuel.
The G500 flies 30 knots faster and 18 per cent farther with the same amount of fuel as the G450 and can fly up to 5,000 nautical miles at Mach speed 0.85.
The spacious cabin can sleep up to eight passengers with plenty of elbow and sitting room for maximum comfort. The jet also features pedestal mounted conference tables, which are height adjustable, as well as high-speed communications and entertainment equipment that allows the cabin to double as an office or media room in the sky.
The all-new Gulfstream G500 stretches the limits of high-speed travel. The advanced airframe design and powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada engines give the aircraft a range of 5,200 nautical miles/9,630 kilometers at Mach 0.85. The G500’s nonstop reach connects distant cities such as Istanbul to Cape Town, South Africa; Los Angeles to London; and San Francisco to Tokyo.
The aircraft outdistances all peers above Mach 0.85 and is the only jet in its class to combine incredible speed with significant range—4,400 nautical miles/8,149 kilometers—when flying at Mach 0.90. The G500 blazes across the sky at a maximum Mach of 0.925.
Every aspect of the all-new Gulfstream G500’s design and performance is dedicated to the fastest flight possible, while in the cabin, every detail is devoted to providing a uniquely personalized and completely comfortable interior.

3. Embraer Phenom 300 E
Following on the heels of the successful Phenom 300, the 300E (the E stands for enhanced) has a new cabin design, which allows for more headroom, and can be fully customized. The new private jet also features significant upgrades to its technology panels.
The Phenom 300 is an extremely popular super-light private jet that delivers amazing performance every time for our clients. They’re never disappointed when flying on this aircraft.
Its lighting system and flight information can be accessed by the touch of a button, while passengers can tune into two seven-inch screens that float from the plane’s ceiling with their Bluetooth devices.
At 45,000 feet, the Phenom 300E is pressurized to a cabin altitude of 6,600 feet. So occupants feel less fatigued and have a more comfortable flight experience.
With the largest windows in its class -1.33 square feet – the Phenom 300E lets in plenty of natural light to work or read by.
Measuring 74 cubic feet (2.09 cubic meters), the Phenom 300E’s external baggage capacity is big enough to accommodate your whole group’s luggage. An optional wardrobe keeps your suits wrinkle-free, and for additional convenience, the aircraft also offers 10 cubic feet of internal stowage space.
Though the Phenom 300E is a light jet, the aircraft is big enough to carry up to 10 passengers in comfort and style. The 17-foot-2-in-long Oval Lite cabin offers more more legroom, headroom and aisle space; the largest refreshment centre in its class; and innovative, fully articulating seats with enhanced cushioning, adjustable headrests and thigh bolsters, retractable armrests, ergonomic seat levers and convenient under-seat drawers.
If the Phenom 300E is half as successful as its predecessor then we have a jet on our hands that will change the super light category.
