Cabin height is usually 5’, comfortably accommodating up to seven passengers. All jets are pressurized and provide a full lavatory and outside luggage compartment for your convenience. Light jets have an average cruising speed of 400-560 mph and a nonstop range of 1,500 mi.
Mid-size jets have an average cabin height of 5’8” and can accommodate up to eight passengers while offering increased luggage capacity and a full lavatory; some also come equipped with a galley. They have an average range of 2,500 mi (about 4-5 hours of flight time) and an average cruising speed of 550 mph. Seating arrangements vary but usually consist of combinations of club seats, bench seats, divans and couches to allow for maximum relaxation and interaction, providing ample arm and legroom. Jets also come equipped with CD and DVD players as well as outlets for laptops and other electronic devices. Amenities such as Wi-Fi and catering can also be arranged.
Heavy jets offer a more spacious cabin interior as well as a more quiet, relaxing and luxurious flight experience. With an average cabin height of over 6’, passengers can stand up fully and move about the interior, which can accommodate up to 16 passengers. The average nonstop range is 4,000 mi; maximum range is 6,700 mi. Average cruising speed is 550 mph. All heavy jets offer at least one full lavatory as well as a galley for catering services. Flight attendants, catering and other optional amenities create an unforgettable private jet charter trip to The Bahamas. However, heavy jets require a longer runway and therefore cannot land at some of the smaller airports.
Twin Engine Piston Aircraft
Twin engine piston aircraft are the most cost-effective and versatile aircraft, allowing you to land at small airports throughout The Bahamas. Reliable and convenient, twin engine aircraft can typically bring you closest to your desired destination. However, they are only able to accommodate individuals and small groups and don’t offer the spaciousness and luxuries of mid-size and heavy jets. Most can seat up to six passengers; seating arrangements vary and often include space for baggage. The maximum average speed is 235 mph and the maximum range is around 990 mi.
Turboprop aircraft comfortably seat up to nine passengers; cabin height ranges between 4’-6’. Most cabins are pressurized and typically provide a lavatory and luggage area. Turboprop jets are able to take off and land at small airports, allowing travelers to fly in and out of smaller islands such as Eleuthera, Harbour Island and Exuma. Speeds can reach up to 335 mph and range is typically about 1,700 mi.
