Business jets are a category of aircraft that are specifically designed for the transportation of smaller groups of individuals. While mostly serving business applications, business jets may also be outfitted and utilized for express parcel deliveries, casualty evacuations, and transportation of government officials and armed forces. Light business jets in particular are aircraft that may access smaller airports and are designed for effective, fast travel. Most light business jets can carry around six to eight passengers, and many average at a weight between 13,000 to 18,000 pounds. While there are many light business jets available on the market, some common and popular models include the Cessna Citation and Beechcraft Premier I.
The Cessna CitationJet series includes light business jets designed and manufactured by Cessna. Across the various model variants, over 2000 units have been produced as of 2017. The variants of the CitationJet include the Model 525, Model 525A, Model 525B, Model 525C, and their respective sub-variants. Depending on the chosen variant, the CitationJet can carry anywhere from six to ten passengers. For travel distance, the Cessna CitationJet can fly in a range of 1,550 to 2,165 nautical miles, provided by a fuel capacity of 492 to 870 gallons.
The Premier I is another light business jet, developed and designed by Hawker Beechcraft
to compete against the Cessna CitationJet series. From the years of 2001 to 2012, 292 units were produced for a variety of operators. Currently, the Premier aircraft comes in three variants, these including the Premier I, Premier IA, and the Premier II. Piloted by one crew member, the Premier I can hold six to seven passengers and carry almost 4,000 lbs with a max takeoff weight of 12,500 lbs. The Premier can also travel up to 830 nautical miles, averaging at a fuel economy of 1.67 pounds per mile.
