The 7 Greatest Midsize Jets to Cruise the Skies in Excessive Model


Textron Aviation

Business jets have expanded to cover all extremes of the spectrum, from very-light-jets like the Cirrus SF50 to ultra-long-rangers and even  bizliners, or commercial jets adapted for private use. A step-up from light jets is the midsize category, with expanded seating (six to eight passenger seats) and luggage capacity that make travel for corporate executives or extended families more viable. The typical midsize also has four to six hours of range, an enclosed lavatory and cruising speeds of 430 to 480 mph. Some historical examples include the Learjet 45, Hawker 800XP, Falcon 2000LXS, Citation Excel, Gulfstream G250 and Embraer Legacy 450.

Seeking to fill the gap between midsize and large jets, the super-midsize class subsequently emerged, offering higher cruising altitudes and speeds, coast-to-coast range, seating for up to 9 or 10 passengers, and stand-up interior cabin heights of around 6 feet. The Citation X, Hawker 4000, the Falcon 50EX, Challenger 300/350 and Citation Longitude are all examples of this category.

Here are seven of our favorites that fill that sweet spot between smaller, lighter models and more substantial large-body aircraft.
