Dassault’s Falcon 2000 is the roomiest private jet in the midsize cabin category – including super-midsize aircraft – however, Bombardier’s Challenger 300/350 and the Gulfstream 200 family are close behind

 

In reviewing midsize private jets, it’s important to remember that it incorporates super midsize aircraft within its definition of business aircraft with a maximum takeoff weight of 20,0000 up to 41,000 pounds. However, for those of you looking at programs that sell by category – midsize and super mid – such as Sentient Jet, Air Partner, Delta Private Jets, Jet Aviation, Airstream Jets, Jets.com and numerous others, you can review which aircraft are part of each cabin category for their programs so you will have a good idea what you might end up flying in.

 

Midsize Jet Cards For Tall Private Jet Fliers

 

With that in mind, when it comes to roomiest jets across the midsize category – including super mid – Dassault’s Falcon 2000 series is the most spacious by a margin of nearly 10%, according to data supplied by Conklin & de Decker. With the widest cabin in the category – 7.7 feet wide, there is also plenty of headspace with the cabin height of 6.2 feet. NetJets, ProspAir and OneFlight International each offer jet cards on the winner providing fixed rates and guaranteed availability.

 

Bombardier’s Challenger 300/350 with 930 cubic feet of cabin space follows – and Flexjet, XOJET, Magellan Jets, VistaJet, Star Jets International and OneFlight all offer jet cards specific to this type. Close behind is the Gulfstream 280 with 888 cubic feet of cabin space and the G200 at 869 cubic feet.

 

Of the measurements that make up cabin volume, height tends to be the one that tall fliers are most focused on. To that end, the Dassault Falcon 2000 series, Challenger 300/350, Gulfstream G200/280, Embraer Legacy 450/500, Beechcraft Hawker 4000, Cessna Citation Latitude and Longitude all have a cabin height of at least six feet. The relatively new Longitude does not have a published number for cubic volume so you will find it at the bottom of this table.
