If you’re in the market for a business-class private jet, the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) has a lot to offer. According to Boeing, the BBJ design is based on the Boeing 737, the best-selling commercial aircraft of all time. That design includes a light, aerodynamic frame that allows for increased range. In fact, the 2012 model can fly more than 6,000 nautical miles nonstop, meaning it can get you anywhere you need to go.
The BBJ is also designed with passenger comfort in mind. It has an 807-square-foot cabin that’s over 11 feet wide and 7 feet high. This means room for more passengers — up to 29 — who are able to move around freely. The BBJ also features less pressure change during climb and descent and offers passengers more oxygen during flight.
On the flight deck, the BBJ does not disappoint. In 2010, Boeing announced the addition of a state-of-the-art avionics system for the BBJ series, including the Enhanced Vision System, which helps to ensure situational awareness at critical times, and the Vertical Situation Display, which provides a vertical view of the aircraft position oriented to the predicted flight pattern and the terrain. As implemented in this 2012 model, the Rockwell Collins Flight Dynamics HGS-4000 Head-up Display and six Honeywell flat-panel LCD flight displays also ensure that pilots have full visibility and orientation in any situation. The result is more accurate flight paths and reduced landing errors or missed approaches.
This jet has two CFM International CFM56-7 engines, which were designed as the result of a partnership between General Electric and Snecma. These engines are optimized with Full Authority Digital Controls and an automated flight management system, all of which is backed by Boeing Business Jet Company maintenance and warranty agreements.
As a business-class jet, the BBJ is nearly unsurpassed in functionality and comfort. The flexibility of this aircraft means it will meet all of your needs, and you’ll know that you have a commercially designed aircraft that offers the luxury of a private jet.
