Charter a Bombardier Global Express to Austin

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

Nicknamed the “Live Music Capital of the World,” Austin, TX, has endless entertainment and fun options, including upscale shopping in South Congress or 2nd Street District, a wide variety of outdoors activities, and much more. One excellent choice for a private charter jet to Austin, and anywhere across the vast stretches of Texas, is the Bombardier Global Express. This business jet is known for its ability to travel between almost any two points in the world with only one stop, and between many intercontinental destinations nonstop.

On such lengthy trips, 8 to 19 passengers can relax in comfort or engage in well-accommodated business aboard the Global Express’s luxurious cabin. Multiple floor plans are available, including a conference area or workstation, a large galley, private lavatory, and a three-place divan which converts to a sleeping area. Peace and quiet in the cabin are ensured by an Ultra Electronics noise and vibration reduction system. The rear luggage compartment is accessible in-flight.

When you fly aboard the Global Express with evoJets Charter, Austin can seem like its right next door. The Bombardier Global Express’s incredible range and performance are facilitated by two BMW Rolls-Royce Deutschland BR710A2-20 turbofan engines with FADEC. Even at its size, the aircraft has excellent short-field capabilities, allowing it to land in airfields closer to travelers’ destinations.

The outer Austin area is known for its Hill Country vistas, and in the center of town is Lady Bird Lake. Hike, climb, or cycle for miles along the Barton Creek Greenbelt, home to habitat for several endangered wildlife and plant species. Visitors may also enjoy strolling through the 360-acre Zilker Park or a cool swim in Barton Springs Pool whose spring-fed waters are 68 degrees all year.

Cessna Series – Ideal when Travelling Private

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

The private jet market has expanded greatly in recent years to include a wide variety of brands and styles. It may be difficult to choose an appropriate aircraft for your diverse business and vacation travel needs. One tried and true series you may want to consider is the family of Midsize Cessna Citation Jets.

These aircraft have been in use as far back as 1980 and continue to perform quite well today. The midsize portion of this series includes the Citation III, Citation VI, Citation VII, Citation X, Citation Excel/XLS, Citation Sovereign, and the CJ4.

Groups with as many as twelve passengers can travel together in the largest of these jets, to destinations ranging from 2100 to 3500 miles away. The slowest of them – The CJ4 – can zip by at 500 mph, while the fastest – The Citation X – trumps that pace by over 100 mph making for a breathtaking speed of at least 600 mph.

The cabin dimensions, except that of length, are about the same for each of these aircraft – 5 ft. 7 in. high by 5 ft. 5 in. wide. The CJ4 is slightly smaller, about 4 ft. 9 in. by 4 ft. 10 in. In length, they vary from 17 ft. 4 in. on the CJ4 up to 25 ft. 3 in. on the Sovereign, which generates extra space for passengers or gear. As for baggage capacity, these aircraft offer anywhere from 60 cubic feet at the smallest up to 135 cubic feet on the Citation Sovereign.

While it is unlikely that just one of these jets can solve all your private aviation travel needs, perhaps some of the specifications mentioned sound like they may match up to one of your upcoming trips. Try taking a closer look by clicking on the “Mid Size Jets” link under the evoJets “Aircraft” drop-down menu to see if a Cessna Citation jet may be right for your next private flight.

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

Here at evoJets, two of the six top preferred aircraft chartered by our clients are Cessna Citations. It’s no wonder why; these jets are sturdy and trustworthy, some having been in use as far back as 1980, yet also provide a high quality of comfort and luxury. There are many types of Cessna Citations, from very light jets and light jets, to midsize jets and super midsize, all of which are available through evoJets Charter.

Flying to or from Los Angeles ? Depending on your departure location or arrival destination and how many companions you are traveling with, any of the different Cessna Citations may be more suitable for your trip than the others. The smallest and lightest of the series is the Cessna Citation Mustang, which seats a total of four passengers and can travel up to about 1320 miles. Meanwhile the Citation CJ3, a light jet, can reach a distance of 2156 miles max and carry up to eight passengers. And the largest and fastest of these aircraft is the Cessna Citation X, which holds up to twelve passengers and can fly as far as 3530 miles nonstop.

This last aircraft is also one of the most popular at evoJets. Amenities aboard the Citation X include eight executive, fully reclining seats typically arranged in double club configuration, heated and pressurized luggage compartments, a private lavatory with plenty of space to double as a dressing room, a full galley, and a closet for coats and small bags. Each of the other Citations comes with varying facilities and usually adjustable seating options, each with similar alternatives and styles to that of the Citation X. The other Citation which falls into the Preferred Aircraft category is the Cessna Citation III, an affordable and yet luxurious midsize jet. This aircraft comfortably carries six passengers in its roomy stand-up cabin and can hold up to eight or nine passengers total. There is plenty of extra leg room for increased comfort and the luggage compartment offers 61 cubic feet of space for storing suitcases and vacation equipment.
