Embraer announced the Praetor 500 and 600 midsize and super-midsize jets, while Honeywell’s Global Business Aviation Outlook forecasts up to 7,700 new business jet deliveries worth $251 billion through 2028

 

On the eve of the National Business Aviation Association’s (NBAA) annual convention being held here in Orlando, Honeywell released its 27th Global Business Aviation Outlook calling for “strong growth in the short to medium term, supported by several new airplane models coming to market and an improved used aircraft environment.” The new forecast predicts 7,700 new business jet deliveries worth $251 billion during the next decade. Earlier in the day at a hangar at Orlando Executive Airport, Embraer announced it was launching two new business jets, the Praetor 500 and 600. 

Can I choose a specific airplane type when I buy a jet card?

When you charter on-demand, buy a full aircraft or fractional share, you buy a specific aircraft type. What about jet card membership programs?

 

In case you haven’t noticed, most jet card programs specify cabin size, then fulfill your needs from a variety of aircraft types in that cabin category. In some cases that’s because you are buying your jet card from a management company and they are clustering all of the aircraft in that cabin size category together. In other cases, it’s a broker program that is sourcing aircraft from charter operators, including management companies and fleet operators. You’ll often see a range of seating for the aircraft that apply to that category, so in the SuperMid category you could get a jet that fits eight people one time and 10 the next. In Large Cabin jets it’s not unusual to see a range of 10 to 14 seats.
