While many people love the idea of private air travel, they understandably have questions about their safety when in the air. Are private jets reliable? Are they as rigorously tested as commercial airliners (such as Boeing’s numerous models)?
In this article, we’ll be answering a straightforward question: which are the safest private planes? There are a lot of private jets available, many of which we use in our private jet fleet. Check out our rundown below if you’d like to know more about private jet safety and the steps we go through here at NICHOLAS AIR to ensure it.
What Are the Safest Private Jets?
Embraer Phenom 300
The Embraer Phenom features an aerodynamic design that makes flying at high altitudes as relaxing as a leisurely bike ride. The intelligently designed cabin offers fast Wi-Fi. In-flight entertainment and ergonomic seating for your comfort. In addition, the Phenom 300 produces 29% less CO2 than older jets and 14% less than current jets, making this model safe for the environment as well.
The Phenom 300 boasts state-of-the-art avionics, so passengers have the very best in communicative and airplane navigation features. The state-of-the-art navigation systems also add an array of predictive issue and alert systems all designed to ensure safe, smooth travel during all stages of a flight. Plus, the Phenom 300 is built to take off in challenging airports, hot temperatures, and high elevations; meaning there is less chance of any issues on the runway.
Although the Phenom 300 was already one of the best-selling, most reliable jets in the world, the updates Embraer made in 2017 paved the way for the Phenom 300E which was released in 2020. It offers even more performance, comfort, and technology than its predecessor.
Cessna Citation Latitude and Citation CJ3+
Cessna has a sterling reputation for efficiency and reliability. NICHOLAS AIR offers two unique Cessna jets, the Citation Latitude and Citation CJ3+.
The Latitude is the best-selling mid-size business jet anywhere in the world, combining power, range, and aesthetics. The plane is built with high-powered turbofan engines that smoothly propel the aircraft to the correct altitude and cruising speed smoothly.
The CJ3+ has the ability to operate on short runways due to its large wingspan, allowing for slower landings. Its ability to climb quickly to a top cruising altitude also allows travelers to fly above weather and avoid other air traffic altogether in many cases. In addition, the CJ3+ is the most advanced aircraft of its kind, utilizing modern engineering and innovations to keep passengers safe in the air. In short, this is an incredibly reliable plane without losing any comfort or efficiency.
Bombardier Challenger 300
Not to be outshined, Bombardier makes safety their mission as well, even going so far as to hold yearly events dedicated to safety in the industry of aviation. The Challenger 300 was built to be incredibly reliable and maintain its performance over the years, offering coast-to-coast travel capabilities without a hitch. However, this plane is also comfortable, with a spacious lavatory and generous cabin space.
