Solairus’ fleet of business jets includes light jet aircraft. These jets excel in performance when flights are 3 hours or less. Their size gives them the unique advantage of operating at airports that larger jets cannot access, placing you closer to your destination.
Light Jet Overview
Light jets are a type of small business jet that the Federal Aviation Administration approved for single-pilot operation. The jets accommodate up to eight people, and have a maximum takeoff weight of 10,000 to 11,000 pounds, depending on the model.
The Small Aircraft Transportation System and air taxi markets boosted the popularity of the light jets in the early 2000s. This class of private aircraft remains popular today because of lower operating costs and ability to take-off and land on runways as short as 3,000 feet.
Amenities on the light jets managed by Solairus included partial galleys and fully enclosed, private lavatories.
