Passengers fasten your seat, for we are about to take off in our very own light jets in business suits and files. The most common type of jet is the light jet among the types of aircraft (do not hesitate to check out our blog on Types of aircraft). These jets are owned by private business people. The efficiency of these types of jets depends on the distance and luggage. It supports only lightweight and smaller distances.
Only 8 people!
These kinds of light jets support only 8 seats. Falling under the category of business jets, they can withstand only ten thousand pounds of weight. The very first models of the very light jets had an, even more, smaller amount of seats( four to 6 seats were available in Morane-Saulnier MS.760 Paris and MS.760). Many more versions have also developed along the ages and won awards at the Eclipse 500 in the year 2006and the Cirrus Vision Jet SF50 in the year 2018(to know more about aircraft do not hesitate to check out our blog on Aircraft).
The air taxi without a lavatory!
The major issue with the light jets, in the beginning, was that they didn’t have a lavatory. Since the flight travel for light jets is only 40- 80 mins the manufacturers argue that the lavatory issue wasn’t a big problem.
The later version light jets were equipped with a curtain-powered electric flush toilet. The light jets fly at a higher level than commercial aircraft, to avoid traffic in the airspace.
The very light jets(also known as VLJs) are much cheaper than conventional jets. They need a shorter runway( 3,000 feet), mode operating as an air-taxi service. They are found to be much safer than commercial aircraft. The safety levels of the light jets is variable and it varies from one flight to the other. This is due to the less turbulence encountered compared to commercial aircraft and they are less bumpier.
I trust you’ve observed my article on Light jets supportive and more interesting. The era of inventory of life in the air is still in progress. Hope you enjoyed this short flight in the light jet. It’s time for landing! For more information on aviation and related stuff do check out our blog page at Criss Cross Tamizh. Until then, bye crewmate!
