The Top Ten
1 Boeing Business Jet

The new business jet was introduced by Boeing in 1996. Since then, many people around the world have been astonished by the design. The inside has an 807-square-foot interior, making the personal jet feel like a flying home with the capacity to accommodate at least 25 people. It is now the most reliable business jet in the world and has become the most popular jet of all time. It is the best of all private airlines in the world and will totally amaze you.

Hi, Dave Kennedy here again, just wanting to share my opinion on planes. I really love planes. They're fabulous! The Boeing Business Jet is my particular favorite. When I grow up, I want to be a pilot and fly this plane because it's just a tank. Haha, I seriously really love planes - Pilot Kennedy reporting for duty.

2 Gulfstream V

The Gulfstream V is the largest and latest development in the Gulfstream line of corporate transports, designed to fly intercontinental distances. It competes with Bombardier's Global Express, the BBJ, and the Airbus A319CJ.

The Gulfstream V is recognized as the safest, most reliable, most comfortable, high-performance, ultra-long-range business aircraft in the world. With an astonishing non-stop range of 6,500 nautical miles, the Gulfstream V offers unparalleled performance and unprecedented comfort - even at 51,000 feet. With speeds up to Mach 0.87, the Gulfstream V can reach any destination in the world in record time.

3 Cessna Citation X

Talking about luxury, the Cessna Citation X is luxury at its best. With comfortable seating for 10-12 passengers, you have it all when you own this jet. I have had this jet for just over a year, and it is nothing but amazing. It costs only 25 million dollars and needs only 5,000 feet of runway to land or take off.

I take this jet from New York to Britain and get there in only 5 hours. Sometimes I fly from New York to Los Angeles, then from Los Angeles to Kona or another gorgeous island. I strongly recommend it. If anybody wants to revoke my review, they're most likely insane. I hope this helps.

4 Bombardier Challenger 604

At its introduction, the Challenger 604 set new standards in general aviation for comfort, low cabin noise levels, and unprecedented cabin space. The Challenger 604 makes lengthy trips comfortable and enjoyable with room for 9 to 10 passengers. Amenities include a full-service galley, large comfortable leather seating, in-flight accessible baggage, and a spacious private lavatory.

Here is one private flight provider among many that can help you book your next trip to the Fiji Islands.

5 Embraer Legacy

The Legacy encompasses comfort and can seat 13 passengers in a cabin only slightly smaller than that of a Gulfstream G500. Shareowners and their passengers experience three different seating areas: forward club seating, a center dining and meeting table, and a semi-private aft cabin, which includes a divan. In addition, the Legacy is also equipped with the latest in avionics technology for global navigation.

While national charter operators have yet to add the Embraer Legacy to their fleets, industry professionals believe that the price and performance capabilities of the Brazilian aircraft will make it a favorite in the near future.

6 Bombardier Learjet 60

The Learjet 60 is a midsize aircraft that can fly across the country nonstop, while passengers enjoy generous space and comfort. There is an exceptional amount of room for baggage. The combination of range, speed, and comfort has made the Learjet 60 one of the world's most popular midsize jets.

Learjet 60 features state-of-the-art safety equipment and avionics, including TCAS (Traffic Collision Avoidance), GPWS (Ground Proximity Warning), and Windshear Detection Systems.

I, in fact, own a Lear 60 and feel as though it is the best plane for my purposes. I previously owned an Eclipse 500, and I am loving the difference in range and comfort. The plane is fast, powerful, and relatively efficient with an average operating cost of nearly $2,200 per hour.

7 Learjet 31A

The popular Learjet 31A is the performance and flexibility leader in its class. It can operate with full seating and maximum fuel capacity from runways shorter than 3,500 feet and has an unsurpassed ability to climb to 43,000 feet in 20 minutes. It offers freedom from turbulence as well as airport and airspace congestion. Flying faster than any aircraft in its class, the Learjet 31A routinely flies at 45,000 to 47,000 feet while offering the lowest operating cost per nautical mile of any transport category business jet.

The most agile and best-looking jet in its class, it should be first.

8 Hawker Beechcraft Beechjet 400A

The BeechJet 400A is a superb example of traditional Beech leadership in quality, reliability, and support. It is clearly superior to its major competitor in speed, cabin comfort, and fuel efficiency. Its supercritical-type swept-wing and powerful turbofan engines allow a fully loaded 400A to climb directly to 43,000 feet and to cruise at 449 knots with incredible fuel efficiency. As a productive business tool, the BeechJet 400A is unmatched in its class.

9 Hawker 800XP

The Hawker 800XP retains all the basic leadership advantages of its distinguished predecessor, the Hawker 800, and adds dramatic new dimensions in overall performance. Cruise speeds have been increased by as much as 23 percent. Range has been extended by up to 35 percent, and the takeoff field lengths have been significantly shortened for all range and payload combinations.

The 800XP also claims the title to the largest cabin of its midsize competitors, with almost 40 percent more space than that of its nearest competitor.

10 Cessna Citation V

The Citation V is one of the fastest, most spacious light jets. At 17 feet long, the cabin is the largest in the light jet category, more than adequate for 7 passengers to stretch out and relax. The baggage capacity of 67 cubic feet ranks among the largest in the light jet category. The aircraft travels at a high-speed cruise of 489 mph up to 41,000 feet. The expanded payload at full fuel gives it a broader range of 2,145 statute miles.
