Super mid-size jet

The super-midsize class has been one of the hottest selling segments of business aircraft in recent years. These versatile aircraft can fly eight passengers nonstop between East Coast and West Coast North American cities at true jetliner speeds. They also can fly nonstop across the North Atlantic eastbound. Almost all can fly westbound from England or Ireland to the U.S. East Coast. To fly from virtually any city in Europe to any destination in North America, they need no more than one refueling stop. Their cabins provide passengers with ample room to work, to relax and to converse. They have full galley facilities, ample storage space for carry-on luggage and full-width aft lavatories. Most have inflight access to a pressurized aft baggage compartment.

Typical examples: Bombardier Challenger 605, Bombardier Challenger 300, Embraer Legacy 600, Cessna citation X
