Off to Chicago on a Gulfstream G500!

November 2nd, 2011 by

The “Windy City” may be leagues away from you, but evoJets puts Chicago, IL, right in your backyard. Let us fly you direct to any of the area’s four airports, in maximum speed, comfort, and luxury. Chicago is a hub for transportation, telecommunication, industry, and infrastructure, and three major financial and futures exchanges are based there – The Chicago Stock Exchange, The Chicago Board Options Exchange, and The Chicago Mercantile Exchange. The city’s enormous McCormick Place is the third largest convention center in the world.

If you have an upcoming business in one of these happening locations, or elsewhere, or if you’re planning to visit the city for leisure, one of the best options available to reach Chicago is, on a Gulfstream G500.

This ultra-long range business jet is the ideal choice for travelers who desire separate areas for dinner, entertainment, work, or rest. In the cabin of the Gulfstream G500, passengers can enjoy plenty of space for anywhere from 8 to 18 passengers, in a choice of six different configurations, with three separate temperature zones and numerous amenities that reinforce in-flight productivity and absolute rest and respite.

All arrangements include a combination of cozy club seats, divans, and conference or dining areas, and maximum berthing can be prepared for up to 6 travelers. The cabin also features an entertainment system including an Airshow info system, DVD and CD players, and two LCD monitors, a full-sized galley for fresh meal services, and a spacious lavatory with shower. The BMW / Rolls Royce BR-700-710-C4-11 turbofan engines of the G500 provide the aircraft with an extra-long range, spectacular takeoff performance, and a higher flight ceiling than earlier models.

Once you arrive in Chicago aboard your private jet charter aircraft, you will find countless attractions and entertainment possibilities awaiting your attention. Many of them are hosted at Navy Pier and its boardwalk, including a 150-foot Ferris wheel, endless dining and shopping locations, and boat and segway tours. Another entertainment plaza is Millennium Park, where visitors can enjoy the fabulous art, music, architecture, landscaping, and in winter, ice skating too.

Other Chicago sights are found at the Skydeck Chicago in the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), the Hancock Observatory, Chicago Cultural Center, the Lincoln Park Observatory, Chicago History Museum, The Joffrey Ballet, The Art Institute of Chicago, and several Frank Lloyd Wright buildings. The city also has numerous golf courses and options for fishing and yacht excursions.

Chicago has nearly 700 hotels, ranging from economy to the posh and luxuriant. A few of the top tier accommodations include Four Seasons Chicago, Trump International Chicago, The Ritz-Carlton, The Peninsula Chicago, Fairmont Chicago, The Drake, Conrad Chicago, and the Park Hyatt.

There are two major airports in the Chicago area – Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD, KORD) and Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW, KMDW). O’Hare is located about 17 miles northwest of the Chicago Loop, and is the second busiest airport in the world. Midway is 8 miles southwest of the Chicago Loop. A third, “reliever” airport for O’Hare is Waukegan Regional Airport (UGN, KUGN), which is located in Waukegan, IL, about 35 miles north of Chicago. Due to the high amounts of commercial traffic at O’Hare, many private, business, executive, corporate, and governmental aircraft choose to operate out of Waukegan when flying to and from Chicago. About 38 miles northwest of the central business district of Chicago is another small reliever airport – Lake in the Hills Airport (3CK).
