Boston-based jet card broker Magellan jets has swapped the CJ3 and CJ4 from the Hawker 400XP and Challenger 604/605 series from the Falcon 2000 in its jet card line-up
Magellan Jets is revamping its line-up of semi-specific jet cards. The move is designed to focus its jet card line-up around Cessna’s Citation, Bombardier, and Gulfstream aircraft.
Gulfstream bumped Bombardier as the most used large private jet in 2020 while holding onto the top spot in super long-range private jets, according to Argus TRAQPak
Textron Aviation’s Citation Excel/XLS, Mustang, and King Air 200 were the most flown aircraft in their respective categories
Gulfstream Aerospace had the most popular large cabin and super long-range private jets in 2020, according to just-released data from Argus TRAQPak.
At the same time, Textron Aviation saw three of its business aircraft take the top spot in three of the eight categories. Its Beechcraft King Air 200 was the most flown multi-engine turboprop. The Cessna Citation Mustang was the most popular very light jet. Its Citation Excel/XLS/XLS+ won the midsize private jet category.
