Want to buy a business jet? How about a six-seater that can fly above the weather at 41,000 feet, cruise at 370 knots (430 mph), and is equipped with hyper-sophisticated avionics? It costs about half as much as its competitors ($1.4 million vs. $3 million) and, thanks to its easy-fly design, can be flown by a single pilot. Less than 30 feet long, it weighs about half as much as a Chevy Suburban — thanks to composite construction. And because of that light weight, it’s substantially cheaper to operate than its competitors ($370 per hour vs. $680). It’s also quieter and produces fewer emissions.
