Manufacturers of business aviation want to make their inventions better, faster, and more mobile every year. Thus, they complete the list of the greatest jets in the world, which are capable of covering distances up to 18.000 km!

Therefore, we can safely assume that long-range private jets have succeeded the most in this business because today, they have consistently high demand. They demonstrate high speed and other performance characteristics when making transcontinental flights, due to which they are the pride of manufacturers. Long-range aircraft are capable of flying between almost any city in the world.

If you are looking for a private jet with the ability to stay for long in the air, then read our article to find out about the best long-range jets from our company. Below you can find detailed characteristics and interesting facts that will help you make the right choice.

What is an ultra-long-range jet?

Ultra-long-range jets are the most expensive and most advanced technology in the aviation industry. These aircraft are designed for long-range flights in high comfort conditions. Transcontinental business jets are distinguished by powerful technical equipment and an unlimited geography of flights. Such an aircraft can fly on any route, even if they are not on the route map of regular civil aviation. Non-stop flight time can reach up to 14 hours.

Ultra-long-range aircraft primarily have:

  • Ergonomic cabin.
  • Availability of modern means of communication.
  • Upgraded cockpits.
  • Cozy interior.
  • High level of service.

During the flight in such a cabin, you can rest. But for business people who do not waste time – such a jet will always offer all the necessary means of satellite, Internet, and telephone communications. These aircraft have up to 4 separate cabins/areas inside and 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen, and a roomy trunk. They are complemented by noise and vibration suppression systems, and their advanced design keeps them smooth when flying in turbulence. Also, the longest range private jet easily takes off from wet and short runways and can cover distances of over 6,000 km.

Examples of ultra-long-range private planes:

  • Gulfstream G700
  • Global Express XRS
  • Falcon 8X
  • Global 5500
  • Gulfstream G650
  • Global 6500
  • Gulfstream G-V
  • Global 6000
  • Global 7500
  • Gulfstream G650ER
  • Global 5000
  • Falcon 7X
  • Gulfstream G600

Let’s take a closer look at three of the most popular ultra-long-range jets – Falcon 7X, Global Express XRS, and Global 5000

falcon 7X

Falcon 7X

Innovation is the word that best describes the Falcon 7X business jet. It is the first fully digitally engineered aircraft with a digital flight control system with built-in self-diagnosis and maintenance tools. The interior space is divided into a working area and a place to relax. The aircraft is equipped with a climate system that maintains a constant temperature and humidity along the entire length of the cabin and a soundproofing system that reduces noise and vibration to a minimum.

Falcon 7X Features:

  • Innovative high-speed wing – 30% more efficient than analogs.
  • A system for maintaining comfortable pressure in the aircraft cabin: it allows passengers to not feel pressure drops during the takeoff and landing of the aircraft.
  • Reduced aerodynamic noise level due to a fundamentally new form of cockpit glazing.
  • 7-channel satellite communication system (SATCOM) MCS-7000 (optional).

In the bow of the business jet, there is a spacious kitchen, a crew rest area, and a toilet. The aft section of the cabin accommodates another passenger toilet, a dressing room, and a luggage compartment accessible during the flight. Falcon 7X is equipped with modern equipment that passengers need during the flight: satellite communications, Internet, DVD, and CD players, LCD monitors, and the Airshow system.

Global Express XRS

Global Express XRS

The aircraft offers easy and fast travel between any point on the globe. It can easily make a non-stop intercontinental flight, such as Sydney – Los Angeles, New York – Tokyo, or Taipei – Chicago. This aircraft comes standard with the Bombardier Enhanced Vision System, which promotes soft landings and helps pilots perceive the aircraft more sensitively in various weather conditions.

The passenger compartment consists of 2 parts, which allow you to retire to relax or prepare for a meeting while the other part of the passengers can continue to communicate. Each pair of chairs can be transformed into a bed with a completely horizontal and flat surface for comfortable sleep. The cabin height of 191 centimeters allows even tall people to feel comfortable on board and conveniently move around the aircraft. A high level of security is provided by the Central Aircraft Information Maintenance System monitoring, troubleshooting and diagnostics system.

According to pilots, the long-range jet‘s best features include:

  • Technical reliability
  • Cruising speed
  • Takeoff and landing characteristics
  • Cabin and cockpit comfort
  • Quality in-flight experience along with impressively low noise levels
  • Small pressure drops in the cabin and automation of many systems

The smoothness of flight, especially in turbulent conditions, is one of the strengths of this aircraft. It can carry passengers across the Atlantic with ease in unsurpassed comfort. The large buffet, entertainment center, flight attendant, bathroom, and large luggage compartment leave a fantastic impression.

global 5000

Global 5000

The Bombardier Global 5000 is perhaps the only long-distance private jet in its class that can easily take off from short runways less than 1 km long and land at hard-to-reach mountain airports. A private jet cabin has three comfortable areas equipped with everything you need for work, leisure, and entertainment. In 2005, the Global 5000 aircraft set a world speed record by covering a distance of 6,500 km in 7 hours and 15 minutes during a competitive flight among business jets on the Chicago – Paris route. All of this makes this aircraft an excellent choice for flying.

Features of this ultra-long-range jet include:

  • High-speed performance, reaching 930 km / h and a flight range of 9000 km.
  • Favorable price for a business jet.
  • Advanced wing design ensures smooth aircraft behavior in turbulent conditions.
  • A steep landing approach allows you to land at hard-to-reach mountain airports.
  • More spacious cabin compared to most aircraft in this class
  • Unsurpassed flight reliability.

With its powerful engines, automatic braking system with small carbon brakes, and upgraded wing structure, rainy conditions won’t prevent you from reaching your destination on time.
