Late model business jet airplanes

Business jet aircraft (also known as "biz-jets") typically carry 5-15 passengers and are primarily used as transportation by business executives and government officials.

In the early days of flight, before World War I, aircraft were constructed entirely of wood and canvas. They were shaped and joined by skilled craftsmen, many of whom were drawn from other woodworking trades. Every aircraft was unique, reflecting many different thoughts and constant design changes. The beginning of World War I brought a sudden demand for thousands of aircraft. This meant that factories had to accommodate large-scale manufacture and assembly of aircraft components by unskilled workers. Small companies grew into major manufacturers capable of producing many different types of aircraft in large numbers.

The techniques for building aircraft evolved gradually during the years between the wars. Wood and canvas changed to aluminum as the principal structural material while designs improved and records were set and broken. Monoplanes (single wing aircraft) were becoming more popular than biplanes (two wing aircraft). More power-ful and reliable aircraft engines were continually being developed to increase pay-loads and ranges. Because of the increased reliability and improved comfort, aircraft became a more acceptable form of freight and passenger transport.

In the late 1990s, Cessna wanted to fill a gap in its midsize line-up as demand for its Cessna Citation III /VI/VII waned, with greater cabin comfort, performance and utility than its concurrence but with Citation reliability, a high aerodynamic lift wing for runway performance, and near transcontinental flight range to compete with the Hawker 800 , a thrust-to-weight ratio to rival the climb performance of the Learjet 60 .

It was announced at the 1998 NBAA convention, it made its maiden flight in February 2002 and deliveries began in late September 2004. [4] FAA certification was awarded on June 2, 2004. [5] EASA certification came on 31 March 2005. [6]

The improved Sovereign+ was announced at the October 2012 NBAA, it rolled out in early March 2013, first flew in April, and began deliveries on December 23 after certification, at a time when the Sovereign fleet reached 349 and had flew 802,000 hours. Winglets were for more range of 150 to 3,000 nmi (280 to 5,560 km), new PW306 D engines with autothrottles provides 5,852 lbf (26.03 kN) of thrust for a 458 kn (848 km/h) top speed and a FL450 direct climb, full fuel payload was increased and the Garmin G5000 replaces the avionics.

Working at AOL in the late 1990s, I watched countless innovative companies crumble after being acquired. Trailblazers like Spinner, Netscape and Bebo either completely disappeared or became a mere shadow of their former selves after AOL forced them to operate within its bureaucratic structure. AOL’s processes killed the entrepreneurial spirit of the startups it acquired, so those deals ultimately had no winners.

The Walmart acquisition of Jet seems very different from my AOL experience. Walmart is actually encouraging Jet to maintain its entrepreneurial spirit with the intention of leveraging Jet and its executives to transform Walmart’s entire digital business. The successful results of this approach are staggering. Here are just a few of Walmart’s recent accomplishments:

Liza Landsman: Jet has always been an innovative place to work. With it’s open office environment and pool table in its signature purple, the company looks like a typical startup and buzzes with positive startup energy. And Jet has always innovated on culture just as much as it innovated on the business. For example, we not only have “take your children to work day,” we also have “take your parents to work day.”

A business jet , private jet , or bizjet , or simply B.J. , [1] is a jet aircraft designed for transporting small groups of people. [2] Business jets may be adapted for other roles, such as the evacuation of casualties or express parcel deliveries, and some are used by public bodies, government officials or the armed forces .

The Lockheed JetStar , seating ten passengers and two crew, first flew on 4 September 1957. 204 aircraft were produced from 1957 to 1978, powered by four 3,300 pounds-force (15 kN) Pratt & Whitney JT12 turbojets , then Garrett TFE731 turbofans for a 44,500 pounds (20.2 t) MTOW , then two General Electric CF700 turbofans.

The smaller, 17,760 pounds (8.06 t) MTOW North American Sabreliner first flew on 16 September 1958. Powered by two Pratt & Whitney JT12 turbojet engines then Garrett TFE731 , more than 800 were produced from 1959 to 1982.
