Mid-size jets are a great option for those wanting to charter a private jet, as they offer a balance between range, speed, and cabin space.

Flying longer distances than smaller jets, these jets can also operate out of smaller airports, unlike their larger counterparts. With a higher cruising altitude matched with faster speeds, medium jets provide a smooth and comfortable flight, without compromising efficiency. They also often have larger cabins than light jets, allowing for more seating and space. Taking a medium size private charter flight is often a great option for customers wanting to travel quickly and in comfort over longer distances

Gulfstream G280

The Gulfstream G280 is a super mid-size jet and the successor to the popular G200, known for its speed and increased cabin length.  

The jet has a cruising speed of 528 mph and a range of 4143 miles, thanks to its two Honeywell HTF7250G turbofan engines. The cabin accommodates up to 10 passengers and boasts 19 performance windows to let in plenty of natural light, and features leather seating and an impressive entertainment system. The cockpit has a Primus 1000 integrated avionics suite with three 8×7 LCD displays, a dual flight management system and digital autopilot. Additionally, the jet is certified for steep approaches, allowing it to land at smaller airports with short runways making it a popular choice for those travelling to more remote areas.

The Challenger 350 is a super mid-size jet produced by Bombardier and was uniquely crafted to fly coast-to-coast within the US. Known for its impressive range, this jet is powered by two Honeywell HT7350 turbofan engines giving it a flight time of 7 hours. It has a cruising speed of 541mph, space for up to 9 passengers and features a large cabin. Its avionics are equipped with a Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 which features four 21.1-inch LCD displays and dual flight management system, enhancing the safety of the aircraft.
