Cessna 525 Citation

Cruising speed: 704 km/h
Maximum range: 2750 km
Passengers: 5-7 pax
Crew: 2 pax

Cessna launched the new Model 525 CitationJet at the annual US National Business Aircraft Association convention in 1989. First flight occurred on April 29, 1991, FAA certification was awarded on October 16, 1992 and the first delivery was on March 30, 1993.

The CitationJet is effectively an all new aircraft. The same basic Citation forward fuselage is mounted to a new T-tail configured tailplane and a new supercritical laminar flow wing, and it features Williams Rolls FJ44 turbofans (with paddle thrust reversers) and trailing link main undercarriage. The CitationJet's fuselage is 27 cm (11 in) shorter than the Citation/Citation I's, while cabin height is increased courtesy of a lowered centre aisle. It features EFIS avionics and is certificated for single pilot operation.

Gulfstream 100

Cruising speed: 850 km/h
Maximum range: 5700 km
Passengers: 7 pax
Crew: 2 pax

The IAI-1125 Astra is comprehensively upgraded development of the successful IAI-1124 Westwind, with a number of key changes to improve performance and increase cabin volume. It is now part of the expanded Gulfstream stable, designated G100.

The Astra is based on the basic Westwind II fuselage and tail, mated with an all new high speed swept wing (initially lacking winglets). Aside from the aerodynamic and hence performance benefits of the new wing, it was also repositioned low on the fuselage (as opposed to mid mounted on the Westwind), where it does not intrude on internal cabin space.

The original 1125 Astra was replaced in production by the Astra SP. Thirty seven were built before it was replaced by the SPX. The SPX, renamed G100 from September 2002, first flew in August 1994. It features more powerful FADEC equipped 18.9 kN (4250 lb) Honeywell TFE731-40R-200Gs, winglets and Collins Pro Line 4 avionics.

Cessna Citation III

Cruising speed: 745 km/h
Maximum range: 4300 km
Passengers: 7-8 pax
Crew: 3 pax

The all new Cessna Model 650 Citation III was designed as a high performance, mid size long range corporate jet to supplement the much smaller Citation I and II.

The new jet made its first flight on May 30, 1979 with a second prototype flying on May 2, 1980. Certification was granted on April 30, 1982, first customer deliveries occurring the following year. The Citation III set two time to height records for its class in 1983 and a class speed record by flying from Gander to Le Bourget in 5 hr 13 min.

Falcon 20

Cruising speed: 820 km/h
Maximum range: 2400 km
Passengers: 8-9 pax
Crew: 2+1 pax

The Mystere or Falcon 20 and 200 family remains Dassault's most successful business jet program thus far, with more than 500 built.

Development of the original Mystere 20 traces back to a joint collaboration between Sud Aviation (which later merged into Aerospatiale) and Dassault in the late 1950s. Prototype construction began in January 1962, leading to a first flight on May 4, 1963. This first prototype shared the production aircraft's overall configuration, but differed in the powerplant. The first GE powered 20 flew on New Year's Day 1965. Throughout the type's production life Aerospatiale remained responsible for building the tail and rear fuselage.

Hawker HS-125-400

Cruising speed: 740 km/h
Maximum range: 2740 km
Passengers: 7 pax
Crew: 2 pax

One of the British aviation industry's most successful postwar designs, the Hawker Siddeley HS-125 was one of the most successful first generation business jets and in developed form remains in production with Raytheon (refer separate entry).

When De Havilland merged into Hawker Siddeley the Series 4, which featured numerous minor refinements, was marketed as the Series 400A and 400B and 116 were built.

Hawker HS-125-700

Cruising speed: 724 km/h
Maximum range: 4625 km
Passengers: 7-8 pax
Crew: 2 pax

The HS-125-700 and Hawker 800 are two more recent versions of the world's longest running corporate jet production program.

The introduction of the HS-125-700 in 1976 brought with it significant performance and fuel economy benefits as the -700 incorporated Garrett TFE-731 turbofans. The 125-700 first flew on June 19, 1976, and the model remained in production until it was replaced by the 125-800 in 1984.

Hawker HS-125-800

Cruising speed: 810 km/h
Maximum range: 5000 km
Passengers: 8 pax
Crew: 2+1 pax

The HS-125-700 and Hawker 800 are two more recent versions of the world's longest running corporate jet production program.

The 125-800 first flew on May 26, 1983. Current production is of the 800XP (Extended Performance) which was certificated in 1995 and has improved engines for better climb and cruise performance.

The Hawker 800 is a comfortable mid-cabin class jet with long range capabilities and seating for 8 passengers. The forward cabin offers 360° club seating giving travelers a private office/meeting area complete with 110V outlets for laptop computers and related equipment.

Learjet 40

Cruising speed: 787 km/h
Maximum range: 3926 km
Passengers: 9 pax
Crew: 2 pax

The new Bombardier Learjet 45 is Learjet's latest entry into the medium size corporate jet market.

Bombardier owned Learjet announced it was developing the Model 45 at the US National Business Aircraft Association's annual convention in Dallas in September 1992. First flight was on October 7, 1995 (the 32nd anniversary of the original Lear 23), and, after some delays, US FAA certification was granted on September 22, 1997. The first customer aircraft was delivered in January 1998.

Learjet 60

Cruising speed: 880 km/h
Maximum range: 4700 km
Passengers: 6-9 pax
Crew: 2 pax

The Learjet 55 and its followon successor, the Learjet 60, are the largest members of the Learjet family, and date back to development work undertaken in the late 1970s.

The improved Learjet 60 first flew in its basic definitive form in June 1991 (the modified Learjet 55 prototype earlier served as a proof of concept aircraft for the 60 with Garrett engines). It differs from the 55 in having a 1.09 m (43 in) fuselage stretch and new Pratt & Whitney Canada PW305 turbofans. Certification of the 60 was awarded in January 1993, with first deliveries following shortly afterwards.

Falcon 50

Cruising speed: 870 km/h
Maximum range: 6000 km
Passengers: 8-9 pax
Crew: 2 pax

The trijet Falcon 50 is a very substantial long range upgrade based on the earlier twinjet Myst?re/Falcon 20 and 200 family.

The first flight of the prototype Falcon 50 occurred in November 1976, although it wasn't until March 7, 1979 that FAA certification was granted. In the meantime the design had been changed to incorporate the supercritical wing, although the original wing's basic planform was retained. A second prototype first flew on February 18, 1978, the first preproduction aircraft following on June 13, 1978. First customer deliveries began in July 1979.
